Alongside the gadgets, weapons, action sequences, and supermodels, one of the many appeals of the James Bond film franchise has always been the vehicles, from classic Aston Martins to a Lotus capable of transforming into a submersible.

Another immensely iconic Bond movie car was the 1969 Cougar XR-7 driven by Countess Tracy di Vicenzo (played by Diana Rigg) in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. And after spending just over half-a-century on display at museums and auto shows, Tracy’s Cougar is now headed to auction. Extensively featured in the 1969 film, the ’69 Cougar is in immaculate condition, having been extremely well cared for over the last 50 years. The car is complete with the ski rack, two pairs of skis, hood locks, and several other minor modifications made to the on-screen car. The 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible XR-7 from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is expected to fetch somewhere between $130,000 and $200,000 when it crosses the auction block at Bonhams forthcoming Bond Street Sale on December 16, 2020.

Purchase: $130,000+
