Auctions 'offer some 007 glamour'

Tue, 28 Oct 2008
With the new 007 film due to be released this weekend, BCA has said classic car auctions provide a great opportunity for motorists to add a bit of Bond glamour to their lives.

Commenting on a recent sale, the company stated a 1968 Aston Martin DBS went for £18,150 - three times its original estimate - after generating interest from buyers in Europe and Japan.

With less than 70,000 miles on the clock, the vehicle had a silver exterior with a black leather interior.

Robin Lawton from BCA claimed: "Classics auctions can look like a who's who of Bond cars, with everything from the Lotus Espirit to Bentleys and Astons going under the hammer."

He added the popularity of the 1968 DBS proved everyone is after a bit of James Bond glamour.

Meanwhile, BCA recently reported its sales figures had not been significantly affected by talk of a recession, with people turning out in force to its car auctions.
