Craig’s personal car is a 2014 Vanquish that Aston Martin produced just 100 units of to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Craig’s vehicle is, naturally, number 007.

The car’s value is estimated at between US$400,000 and US$600,000. It will be displayed at Christie’s showroom in Los Angeles from Feb. 27-March 3 before moving to New York, where it will be auctioned on April 20 as part of Christie’s annual decorative arts masterpiece sale called The Exceptional Sale.

Aston Martin cars have appeared in Bond films over nearly 50 years, beginning with 1964’s “Goldfinger” in which Sean Connery drove a silver Aston Martin DB5. The brand has appeared in all four Bond films starring Craig.
Becky McGuire, director of Christie’s’ said: “It was a homage, really, to his career. The Exceptional Sale and what he’s brought to the Bond character has been so appreciated by the company and, of course, zillions of fans.”
Last year, Craig said he will reprise the role of James Bond one last time. The film is expected to be released in US cinemas on Nov. 8, 2019.
