The Aston Martin DB5 that Sean Connery drove as James Bond in “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball” has been sold for $4.1 million to Harry Yeaggy, an American businessman no one has ever heard of.
The 007 car has a real bullet-proof shield and revolving license plates, but its ejection seat doesn’t work.
Yeaggy bought the famous spy car at a London auction last night. The Cincinnati man is only the second person to own the Aston Martin. Broadcaster Jerry Lee bought it from the car maker for $12,000 in 1969.
Face it, that car is the real James Bond car, and Sean Connery always was the real James Bond.
