James Bond’s Aston Martin is 001

James Bond’s legendary Aston Martin DB5 is a bloke’s top star car, according to a new poll.

The 1964 silver coupé was driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger and Thunderball. It won by pulling 16.5% of the votes, ahead of The Italian Job’s Mini Cooper and Back To The Future’s Delorean.

The accolade comes as the DB5 is predicted to fetch $5 miilion at an auction in London this month.

The 4.0 litre, 282bhp model fitted out with pop-out machine guns, tyre shredders, an ejector seat and bullet-proof screen is being sold by US radio boss Jerry Lee. He bought it in 1969 for $12,000.
