    Of particular note to James Bond fans and collectors was a 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV Vantage up for sale. As earlier reported on CommanderBond.net, this car was used as a test stand-in for 1964’s Goldfinger, which ultimately featured the famous DB5 model.

    Pegged to sell for between £40-60,000, the Aston exceeded expectations and eventually went for £84,000 ($120,000).
