This is what a real fan of 007 wants to have his collections. And i am too disappointed because i am not able to grab a piece of this one because it is not available in US. So sad.

I bet this car would cost millions!@Andy_Driscoll ,I think they are planning to make a replica and keep the original version.

It seems that they haven’t restored the GE Fabbri well. Nonetheless, I bet this thing would be put in the museum of James Bond car! Can’t wait it!

No doubt that this car will cost millions. And I think vintage cars are good to be placed on the museum rather than stock on garage.BTW, I think they haven’t restored the car well that’s why they need to come up with replica.

He once told me that it was a kick driving down the freeway to raise the bullet-proof panel and to rotate the license plates. I don’t know if he still has the car, but in the late 70s, it was on display in his jewelry store in Provo.

I’m not sure that statement, "...only one of two made and the only one still in existence..." is accurate. I know - because I saw it and watched it ’perform’ all the movie tricks - that one was owned by a jeweler in Provo, Utah who regularly drove it up to Salt Lake City to be displayed in car shows.

No way, a collection item maybe. Much better to be displayed rather than be drove on the street. And I don’t think that the engine is still capable. Not unless its regularly check and maintain.smiley

The DB5 Bond car and the iconic 1966 Batmobile are probably the two best remembered movie cars of the 20th century. Always wanted that ejector seat.

This particular DB5 up for auction was the actual movie car used during "Goldfinger" (1964) and "Thunderball" (1965), driven by Sean Connery himself.

After receiving its star treatment, the DB5 was sold to radio broadcaster Jerry Lee of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for $12,000 in 1969.

First I am very disappointed this is not available in the US. Second I am sickened in the horrible customer service that the current subscribers in the UK are receiving right now.
