James Bondâ€™s Aston Martin auctioned for $4.6 million
Whoa, that's a lot :crazy:
Actually, Aston Martins can be eye-wateringly expensive to own - and there are plenty of owners willing to pay.
I live near one of the major Aston service and repair centres and Astons arrive fairly regularly at the local airport. Sending your car halfway round the world by airfreight just to be serviced is not the cheap option.....:eek6:
If ya got's 4mil to spend on the car, 1/4 mil service call should be in your checking account
Classic Motorsports Magazine had a poll, 69% thought it would sell for less than 2 million.

I think someone has more money than sense!
Just wait til it gets banged by a shopping cart. Talk about a grown man (I'm assuming) crying :lol:
Hey, rockets and wheel spindles that extend out to shred another car's tyres are spensive!
Actually when one considers all the classics balled up into that single car; classic car, classic movie and a classic actor that drove it.... Me thinks they made a much better investment than a money market account or Wall Street...
Fellas, fellas, fellas.... you can't put a price on this.
This is James Bond's car. You put on a nice tuxedo, park that thing in front of a club and watch the panties drop.
But that's how I roll. Whoever bought it will probably just drive it to some coffee shop on Sundays. :devil:
The dude is going to put it in some private collection to gather dust for the next 40 years.
I just don't see it.
I Guess if I kept some of the cars I once owned I would be rich. I once had:
1966 427 Corvette 425 HP convertible.
1968 327 365HP solid lifter Vette convertible
1965 Buick Rivera with the factory Two AFB carbs and it was fast.
1965 Mustang 271 HP hi-performance
1967 Lincoln ans a 1969 Lincoln both had the suicide doors.
1953 MG TC right hand steering wheel (From England)
1929 Model "A" Ford (Stock and ran great.)
I bought them, enjoyed them, ran the heck out of them, traded or sold them and now I wish I had them all back.:cornet:
Well there ya go, what bank offers that kind of interest??
I still have my first car, a 1952 MG TD. I generally keep cars forever or until they fall apart. I had a truck that I rebuilt twice, cause I liked it and it was cheaper to put a new engine and a transmission in it, repaint and upholster than it cost to buy a new truck, I gave it to my son-in law, when I needed a bigger truck. I've never sold a car.
Wow, did I read that correctly? The first owner bought it for $12,000 and sold it for $4.6 M. That was a good return on the dollar.
But not as good as the nephews and nieces of a doctor near me - when he died they found a Bugatti Atalante in his garage which sold for 'only' $4.8 million (compared to a predicted $9 million). But then there were 17 of these Bugattis - I guess common cars will always go cheap....
Oh, and he did also have an Aston and an E-Type in the garage.
Octane Guy, where have you been? This Bugatti definitely needs some of your TLC.
If one of my family died and I opened the garage door and found that they'd have to call 911 for an ambulance!!! While 5 million would be hard to turn down, a Bugatti like that would be damn hard to part with..... Think it would look funny to have one of those and live in a trailer? LOL
It would be OK Mark. Nobody else in the trailer park would know what it was, other then an "old car".
Hey a Guy's got to have his priorities!
I would love to have a $3,000,000 beater sitting in my garage:lol:
Exactly, but what ever you do, don't let the wife get wind of how much its worth or you'll be up to your ears in fancy curtains and granite counter tops.....lol
