Auction set for Sean Connery’s Aston Martin DB5, sans ejector seat

After a yearlong search, Sean Connery found a black 1964 DB5 in near-perfect condition. The car still has little evidence of being sat in beyond some creases in the seat leather, according to Barney Ruprecht, an Aston Martin specialist with Broad Arrow who helped Connery locate it. Connery had the vehicle painted Snow Shadow Gray to match the Bond car in Goldfinger.

Connery kept the car at his home in Switzerland and had a photo of it on his desk.

“Unfortunately as he got older, traveling, especially to Europe [became difficult], and then COVID hit,” Jason Connery told CNN. “You know, unfortunately, he never really got to enjoy the car that he’d bought.”

The car will be part of Broad Arrow’s August auction in Monterey, Calif., with most of the proceeds going to the Sean Connery Philanthropy Fund.
