The upcoming Christie’s charity auction, ‘Sixty Years of James Bond’, will feature 60 lots of 007 memorabilia, including a number of vehicles that have caught our attention.
Several machines handled by Daniel Craig in ‘No Time To Die’ will be on the block, and our particular favourites are the Triumph motorcycle on which Bond makes a spectacular entrance to a piazza in Matera, the ‘bulletproof’ Aston Martin DB5, and its younger sibling, the Aston V8… a model that had previously appeared in the 1987 film ‘The Living Daylights’.
The live auction is by invitation only, and below we have detailed the lots previously mentioned, together with their estimates. If for any reason your name is not on the guest list, or you cannot wait until September 28th to spend your money, we have also added some alternative options that are currently on the market. Mason & Sons will donate their commission on the sales of any of these items to charity if sold through the company by 28th September 2022.
Lot 25: No Time To Die - Triumph Scrambler
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE stunt bike is first ridden by Safin’s assassin Primo (Dali Benssalah) and has a major role in the Matera pre-credit sequences. In No Time To Die, Bond (Daniel Craig) manages to commandeer the bike for a chase through the streets, culminating in an epic jump into the piazza.
(Estimate: GBP 20,000 - 30,000)
Lot 7: No Time To Die - Aston Martin Replica DB5 Stunt Car
In the film, the DB5 stunt car features in an exciting opening chase sequence, driven by James Bond, with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) at his side, through Matera, Italy. The DB5 stunt car demonstrates its incredible dynamic capabilities as the pair drive at high speed through the town in an attempt to shake off their pursuers.
(Estimate: GBP 1,500,000 - 2,000,000)
Lot 11: No Time To Die - Aston Martin V8
On his return to London, Bond retrieves the V8 from his lock-up, pulling off the dust sheet to reveal the iconic car. Bearing the same registration as the car that played a key role in Timothy Dalton’s The Living Daylights, the car takes Bond from London to Madeline Swann’s childhood home in Norway via the spectacular Atlantic Road.
(Estimate: GBP 500,000 - 700,000)
