London, Feb 2 (ANI): A 1965 Aston Martin DB5 built for the James Bond film franchise has been put up for sale for a staggering 3 million pounds.

The British sports car firm only made four DB5s for the 007 movies 'Goldfinger' and 'Thunderball' which starred Sean Connery as the super-suave spy, the Daily Mail reported.

This classic model is one of only two of the four originals to be fully kitted out with all of Q Branch's famous gadgets including imitation machine guns, revolving number plates and even the tyre-slicing device.

The DB5 is in pristine condition because it never featured in the films but was instead used for promotion ahead of the release of 'Thunderball'.

Surrey-based Aston Martin specialists RS Williams have now put the DB5 on the market - describing it as "the most famous car in the world."

This makes it one of the most expensive movie cars of all time and almost ten-times the price of a standard DB5.

Under the bonnet of the DB5 is a 4-litre engine which develops around 280bhp - giving the British sports car a top speed of 150mph.

But next to the impressive 1960s sports car performance and beautiful design, it is the car's gadgets and history which have upped its value.

The car boasts revolving number plates, two imitation machine guns, a bulletproof screen to cover the rear window and a radar device built into the dashboard.

Its front and rear bumpers also extend and there is a fitted smoke device to fend off villains.

Many of the gadgets are operated at the flick of a switch via the arm console which opens up to reveal a control panel.

The DB5 was the first ever Aston Martin to feature in a Bond film - 1964's 'Goldfinger' - and was the start of the iconic partnership that spanned 11 Bond films and 50 years of cinema history. (ANI)
