Up for sale, the best car, ever

Fancy a new car? If the answer's "yes", then I may be able to help.

Although I'd hate to be thought of as just another used car salesman, I really believe that you'd struggle to find another car like it.

It's in mint condition and, despite being built in 1963 has only 30,000 miles on the clock. It also boasts the kinds of performance statistics that would be impressive even for a modern day vehicle.

It's also iconic, perhaps the most iconic car in motoring history. Still not sold? Well, it also has some unique security features, including machine guns, revolving numberplates and a nail spreader.

The only hitch: it's expected to fetch at least £4 million pounds when it goes up for auction in London in October.

But it is also the very Aston Martin DB5 that was used in the Bond films Goldfinger and Thunderball.

As the director of the auction house which is selling the car says, "This DB5 is more than a car; it's a film star."
