by Alex

The fourth-annual Automobiles of London event is due in another few days time and RM Auctions is once again preparing them for the event. Viewing time starts on the 20th of October with the actual auction set for October 27. The lots have been so prepared that there is something for everybody. A look at the lots would be as follows:-


There is the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 which was used in the 1964 James Bond movie Gold finger and Thundreball. Several of the Bond modifications are yet included in the car and therefore slated as the “Most Famous Car in the World”. It even has the bullet proof shield and smoke screen installed.

There is also the 1969 Lamborghini Islero GTS which had been driven by Roger Moore in the film The Man Who Haunted Himself coming under the hammer. This item is expected to fetch somewhere between $151,000 and $215,000 having the uniqueness of the only car of five to have a right hand drive.


The auction would also have the 1904 DeDion-Bouton Model ADL Rear-Entry Tonneau of the early 1900 era. This one would have the wicker parasol holder and a dashboard-mounted pocket watch yet upon it. The car holds the record of being named the best in class at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.


Its not only the car as there is even the bond girl famed Hiller UH-12 E4 helicopter coming up for sale. This 1960 model chopper had been flown by the actress Honor Blackman as the Bond girl “Pussy Galore”. The chopper is yet in fully flying condition and expected to fetch $317,000 to $635,000 which includes flying lessons also to the owner or winning bidder.

Two daredevil motorcycles – the 1989 Honda CR50 models which had been driven by stunt performer Eddie Kidd to jump across the Great Wall of China in 1993 is also coming up and expected to fetch $31,000 to $47,000.


There are nine Ferrari’s to be bid for in the sale. This includes the 1966 Ferrari 365 California Spyder. Out of the 14 samples ever built the one at the sale is the one bearing the Chassis No 08347 that had been shown at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. Estimated sale value of the car is placed at $876,000 to $1.083 million.


The fastest car at the Nurburgring, the Pagani Zonda R which had sped to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds is also up for sale here. The expected price for the particular one of chassis no 5 is one of 15 built by the company.
