Buyers got the chance to see James Bond’s original 1965 Aston Martin DB5 at Sotheby’s auctioneers in New York City. 

A gadget-filled car used in the James Bond movies Goldfinger and Thunderball will be auctioned in mid-August.

Sotheby's auction house expects the Aston Martin DB5 to sell for between four and six million dollars.

The vehicle has 13 gadgets, including a nail dispenser to puncture the tires of pursuing vehicles, retractable machine guns in the front and a switch that alternates the license plate between Switzerland, Great Britain and France.
