James Bond Casino Icon: Aston Martin Up For Sale, by Greg Tingle - 2nd June 2010

Punters, we know its not casino or gambling news purse, but Bond remains one of the world's most famous (and successful) gamblers. Geez, we wonder why he always wins. Media Man and Gambling911 hit top gear with this special report...

The famous Aston Martin driven by Sean Connery in the James Bond franchise movies is going up for sale at a London auction house this October.

The silver 1964 Aston Martin DB5, named by car auctioneers RM Auctions as "the world’s most famous car," is expected to fetch at least $5 million bucks!!!

The beast of a car is one of only two of the original Aston Martins that featured on the big screen with Sean Connery behind the wheel in Goldfinger and Thunderball.

It comes complete with Bond gadgets including fake machine guns, revolving number plates and smoke screen. If you want real guns, you will have to add them yourself!

The model is being sold by American radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, who bought it for $US12,000 ($A14,193) in 1969. It's been largely parked at his home since then and has rarely been seen publicly.

RM Auctions advise the car is going under the hammer in London on October 27.

Favorite casino games of Bond include Baccarat Chemin de Fer, Texas Hold'em Poker and Roulette.
