James Bond has driven plenty of vehicles over the course of his many on-screen exploits. The one that is most quintessentially Bond, however, is the silver Aston Martin DB5. This is the car that even non-car lovers will recognize as 007’s preferred ride.

One Bond fan went all out on Thursday to own a piece of movie and automotive history. The mystery fan placed a winning bid of $6,385,000 at RM Sotheby’s Monterey Car Week auction to purchase an original Bond DB5. The figure was well above the estimate of between $4,000,000 and $6,000,000 and is a new record for DB5s.
