The main lot, without a doubt, is one of eight DB5 stunt cars used to film no time to die. It’s the only such car approved for sale so far, and it’s loaded with Q goodies, including hidden machine guns that don’t fire. It is expected to sell for between $1.83 and $2.43 million. Other vehicles of note include a Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE motorcycle driven by Daniel Craig in the same film (which has a presale estimate of $24,000 to $36,000), a jet boat driven by Pierce Brosnan in The world is not enough ($24,000 to $36,000) and a cello case that Timothy Dalton used as a sled in Living daylights ($5,000 to $9,000).

There are also plenty of items for those who prefer early Bond actors or just don’t have the spare space in their garage. These include a Swarovski-encrusted prop egg of Roger Moore’s star Octopus ($7,000 to $10,000), a set of two 50th Anniversary On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Omega Seamaster divers with a box signed by George Lazenby ($49,000 to $73,000) and a five-night stay at the Fleming Villa in Jamaica, complete with a facsimile of the script from the first Bond movie, Sean Connery -featured Dr. No ($35,000 to $60,000).
