A 24-carat gold-plated Aston Martin DB5 scale model recently exchanged hands for 55,000 pounds or $90,000 or close to 55 Lakh INR at a Christie’s charity auction, right in line with pre-auction estimates.

A part of James Bond memorabilia that went under the hammer, this gold smeared DB5 scale model was created using 3D scans of a full-sized DB5, and features the signature of Sir Ken Adam, responsible for the Q modifications carried out by Aston Martin and used by Sean Connery in the movie “Goldfinger”, where the DB5 was the first Aston Martin model to appear in a James Bond movie.
