Auction Block: Daniel Craig’s Aston Martin Vanquish

We’ve all had that moment behind the wheel when our voices change to a crisp British accent and the phrase slips out, “The name is Bond. James Bond,” right before chirping the tires as you peel out of the local supermarket. Thanks to Christie’s upcoming Exceptional Sale, someone will have the chance to live out every man’s fantasy as they auction Daniel Craig’s Aston Martin Centenary Vanquish, aptly numbered 007.

Back in 2014, Aston Martin produced a limited edition series of 100 units of their flagship Vanquish model to commemorate their 100th anniversary, offering unique exterior colors and bespoke interior trim not available in the base level package. As a show of gratitude from the brand to the movie franchise that brought them legendary exposure, they gifted unit 007 of the Centenary Vanquish to Daniel Craig in a special midnight blue exterior paint and dark blue leather interior, a move to complement the Bond actors preference for denim duds. The proceeds from the New York auction will benefit The Opportunity Network, a non-profit organisation that provides young people with pathways to career development.

Purchase: $400,000+
