You Can Now Buy Famous Stunt Cars From James Bond Movies

Auctions / Comments

The upcoming auction includes two Land Rovers and a Jag.

Fans of the James Bond films know that the fictional British Secret Service agent typically drives an Aston Martin, but he has been known to drive vehicles from other brands in a pinch. In the most recent installment of the 007 Series, No Time To Die, Bond drives the classic Aston Martin DB5 and is chased by several Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. Several of those vehicles are now for sale in a massive charity auction to mark 60 years of Bond films.

The auction features 60 lots in total, with online bidding open from September 15 through October 5 (James Bond Day). The cars will be sold live on September 28 at an invitation-only event.

One of the wildest vehicles up for grabs is a stunt Land Rover Defender 110 with the VIN 007. CarBuzz actually had a chance to drive one of the 10 Defender stunt vehicles used in the film, and can speak to how fun it is off-road. The stunt car, which is expected to sell for around $360,000 to $600,000 (at current exchange rates), will benefit the British Red Cross.

But that's not the only Defender in the auction. Attendees can also bid on a Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition, built by SV Bespoke in anticipation of No Time To Die. Only 300 examples of the Bond Edition were built worldwide, and this one is a road-legal UK specification. It features special Bond touches like a '60 Years of Bond' logo on the instrument panel and a '007' badge on the tailgate. This Defender is expected to bring around $240,000 to $360,000 for Tusk charity, which preserves wildlife in Africa.

The final Land Rover featured in the sale is a Range Rover Sport SVR stunt car that was one of six used in the film's chase scene. Like the Defender V8 Bond Edition, it features a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. It should sell for around $97,000 to $145,000.

Among the screen-used vehicles, the Jaguar XF chase car will be the most affordable one in the auction. Estimates predict it will sell for around $68,000 to $85,000. The Jag is one of two cars used in the pre-credit sequence where the villains chase James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) and Madeleine Swann (played by Laa Seydoux) through Italy's narrow streets.

"Defender, Range Rover, and Jaguar were in the thick of the action in No Time To Die. Each car represents a unique piece of James Bond history which we're sure collectors will be keen to own and we are delighted to be able to support our charity partners through their sale," said Nick Collins, Executive Director Vehicle Programs at Jaguar Land Rover.
