$2M for Aston Martin Bondmobile

The legendary 1965 DB5 model, complete with a host of high-tech gadgets, went under the hammer in Phoenix, Arizona.

Driven by Sean Connery, the car boasts built-in Browning machine guns, tyre slashers, an oil slick ejector and a retractable rear bullet-proof screen.

It was bought for $2,090,000 by a European collector. When last sold in 1970, it fetched 5,000.

From the BBC.
