James Bond stunt cars among 60 lots in charity auction

While Aston Martins were traditionally 007’s car of choice, other automotive brands have starred more recently, particularly in 2021’s grand finale, No Time to Die, which featured Defenders, Range Rovers and a Jaguar.

Now, the notion of owning those cars can be your reality with stunt vehicles from No Time to Die among 60 items being auctioned for charity later this year to mark 60 years of James Bond films.

The most expensive lot will be a No Time to Die Aston Martin replica DB5 stunt car, which has an estimate ranging from £1.5 million-£2m ($A2.616m-$A3.488m).

The unique Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition is expected to fetch more than $A500,000 at the charity auction.

Two Defenders and a Range Rover Sport SVR will be offered, led by a Defender 110 (estimate: £300,000-£500,000) famed for its all-terrain stunt scenes in No Time to Die

A Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition, created by SV Bespoke and inspired by the specification of the Defenders in No Time to Die also goes under the hammer (estimate: £200,000-£300,000). It sports a unique “60 Years of Bond” logo etched on the instrument panel end cap. 

The Range Rover Sport SVR stunt car (estimate: £80,000-£120,000) also starred in a No Time to Die high-speed all-terrain chase was one of six supplied for filming.

No Time To Die
The Jaguar XF is ‘the perfect chase car’, according to the No Time To Die stunt crew.

Also featured will be a Jaguar XF, which the No Time to Die stunt team chose as a perfect chase car. James Bond (Daniel Craig) drove it with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) by his side as they raced through the narrow, twisting streets of Matera, in southern Italy. It’s expected to fetch £50,000 to £70,000.

The 60 lots, spanning the 25 films, will be offered in a two-part sale of posters, props, costumes, memorabilia, experiences and those cars. 

Bidding in the online-only sale will open with 35 items from 15 September until “James Bond Day” on 5 October.

The serious cars will go under the hammer with 22 other lots at an invitation-only live Christie’s auction in London on 28 September. 

If an invite fails to find you, don’t worry – fans and collectors worldwide will still be able to bid online using Christie’s LiveTM.
