Bond`s Aston Martin Vanquish For Sale
27th February 2003
The annual Bonham's Aston Martin Auction at Newport Pagnell (UK)
this year features one of the ultimate Bond collectibles - an
Aston Martin Vanquish that was actually used on the set of "Die
The car was one of three pristine "hero" cars that
were used in close ups and was driven by Pierce Brosnan. The Vanquish
with chassis number SCFAC13372B500172 can be seen during the close
up shots at Gustav Graves' Ice Palace, and is the only car form
the set that is being sold.
The specially coloured 'Tungsten Silver' Vanquish cuts
a striking image as the two play cat and mouse across the
frozen landscape. Despite being driven by one maverick owner
in the film, the car is in perfect condition.
It has all the specifications one would normally expect
to find on a brand new Vanquish and it will be offered with
a letter of authenticity from Aston Martin, confirming that
the car was driven by Pierce Brosnan on the set of Die Another
Bonhams' sale, which is held annually at Aston Martin's Newport
Pagnell Works Service, will also include around 50 of the finest
Aston Martin's available, in addition to 150 lots of automobilia,
and - for the first time - a James Bond memorabilia section will
be incorporated into this special event.
The auction takes place in Newport Pagnell on 10th May 2003.
