James Bond's Aston Martin in charity auction
LONDON (AP) - For sale: used sports car, one debonair but dangerous owner.
The Aston Martin V12 DBS coupe which featured in the James Bond film Quantum Of Solace is the top attraction at a charity auction marking the 50th anniversary of the first 007 film, Dr. No. Christie's auctioneers said on Thursday that the car, a 2008 model, is expected to sell for at least 100,000 pounds (S$198,000) at an invitation-only auction on Oct 5.
Proceeds will benefit Barnardo's, a British children's charity. Nine other items, including sunglasses worn by Daniel Craig in Quantum Of Solace, will also be offered Oct 5 in support of other charities.
Christie's said 40 items will be offered through an online auction from Sept 28 to Oct 8 to benefit Unicef.
