James Bond Aston Martin to make $230,000 at Christie's?

An Aston Martin DBS driven by Daniel Craig as James Bond in the 2008 film Quantum of Solace will highlight Christie's auction celebrating 50 years of the spy on screen.

The 2008 6 Litre V12 2-Door Coupe has a high estimate of £150,000 ($230,000) ahead of Christie's charity auction next month.

We believe the cachet of the Bond name could see it far exceed this price, particularly considering previous auction results.

Aston Martins have appeared in 10 Bond films. A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 employed in the Goldfinger and Thunderball movies, complete with revolving number plates, sold for $4.1m in October 2010 - a record for a piece of Bond memorabilia.

It is one of 10 Bond items up for grabs at an invitation only auction in London on October 5, although you don't require an invite if you wish to bid remotely.

The famous swimming shorts that Craig wore in Casino Royale are also putting in an appearance, with a £5,000 ($7,500) estimate - we have his autograph available right now.

An online only sale, which runs from September 28 to October 8, will offer a further 40 lots of Bond memorabilia.

It will include a first edition of Ian Fleming's Dr. No, which is estimated to make £1,500 ($2,300), while a selection of tarot cards used by Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die have a £1,200 ($1,800) valuation.

Nicolette Tomkinson, a director at Christie's, commented: "With memorabilia offered from every official Bond film ever made, the auction is sure to appeal to new and established fans of the famous British spy.

"James Bond is much-loved by a truly international fan-base and we hope to make memorabilia from the 23 Bond films accessible to all. A broad spectrum of prices will be covered within the auction, with online lots selling without reserve and bids starting at only £50."
