In "Skyfall," the latest Bond film, the British super-spy goes back to the classic Aston Martin DB5, although a new Aston Martin would certainly have been faster, handled better and been less expensive to boot.
The one pictured here certainly isn't cheap. It's the original movie car used in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball." It was sold by RM Auctions in 2010 for $4.6 million.
Compared to that, maybe the $450,000 you'd have to pay for one that never appeared on the big screen isn't so bad after all.
But while you might think that to get your hands on a car like the ones James Bond drives, you'd have to pay a lot of money, that's not always true. Hagerty Insurance, which specializes in collectible cars, pulled together this list of past Bond cars, including something for almost any budget.
The 575-hp Shelby Raptor has monster performance and rugged off-road capability, making it a pick-up truck for the not-so-faint-of-heart.
