5 Highest-Priced Movie and TV Cars of All Time

Third-costliest: 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond films Goldfinger and Thunderball
Price: $4.6 million

How many car owners can say their ride has an ejector seat, a smoke-screen maker and a half-dozen other secret-agent features?

Probably just one -- the person who bought this 1964 Aston Martin DB5 at auction in 2010 for 2.9 million British pounds (a shade over $4.6 million at then-current exchange rates).

The car is the only surviving one of two DB5s to appear in James Bond movies Goldfinger (1964) and Thunderball (1965). It's so unusual that the vehicle went on display at the 1964 New York World's Fair, while British model-maker Corgi's version of the car is said to have been 1965's top-selling toy.

"The following for that car is just beyond anything I think we've ever seen," says RM's Kelleher, whose firm auctioned off the vehicle.

The expert estimates a standard 1964 DB5 would have only sold for around $300,000 to $500,000 at the time. "The overwhelming majority of the price achieved for that car was because of the James Bond franchise," he says.
