James Bond’s ‘Spectre’ Aston Martin on sale for $1.5M+

James Bond fans should head to London for a one-off chance to grab a slice of the super-spy's lifestyle.

There's plenty of choice, with 24 costume, prop and memorabilia items from the latest Bond movie up for auction by Christie's in London this week. But the big ticket item is the Aston Martin DB10 that Bond drove into the river Tiber in Rome early in "Spectre," which is expected to sell for between £1 million ($1.5 million) and £1.5 million ($2.2 million).

A British heritage brand, Aston Martin has been the car of choice for Bond for over 50 years and the DB10 was designed exclusively for "Spectre."

Christie's' live auction on Thursday will be the first time a DB10 goes on sale to the public. It is one of only 10 built — especially for Bond — eight of which were used in filming the movie.

The car comes with a 4.7-liter V8 petrol engine and has a top speed of around 190 miles per hour. However, potential buyers are warned that it is not certified for use on any public roads and is sold as a collector's car only.

Other items for sale on Thursday include the skeleton costume Bond wore at the "Day of the Dead" celebrations in Mexico City at the start of the movie. The coat, mask, gloves, hat and cane combo is seen selling for between £12,000 and £18,000.

Also for sale is an 18-carat rose gold wristwatch worn in the movie by Ralph Fiennes as "M," plus arch-villain Franz Oberhauser's "Spectre" gold ring.

These and six other items will be sold at the live auction with another 10 items available at an online-only Christie's auction that opens on Tuesday.

All proceeds from the auctions will go to charities, including Medecins Sans Frontieres, and the United Nations Mine Action Service.
