For the 60th anniversary of James Bond, three Jaguar and Land Rover branded vehicles used in the film “Dying Can Wait” (2021) will be auctioned from September 15 to October 5, 2022. The proceeds obtained will go to charities including the British Red Cross.
This is a unique opportunity for fans of the famous British secret agent to own one of his vehicles: for the 60th anniversary of the James Bond saga, Christie’s will offer several cars at auction from September 15 to October 5, 2022 , as 20 Minutes reveals.
The most expensive lot of this sale will be the Land Rover Defender 110, a vehicle that shot several action scenes in No Time to Die in 2021. One of the ten copies used for the film is offered between 300,000 to 500,000 pound sterling. Funds raised will be donated to the British Red Cross.
A “ perfect racing vehicle ”
Another nice prize to win: a Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition created by SV Bespoke and produced in only 300 copies. This sports version has been homologated for the road and sports a “60 Years of Bond” logo on the dashboard. It is estimated between 200,000 and 300,000 pounds sterling. Proceeds will be donated to the Tusk Conservation Foundation.
Finally, the vehicle which was used to pursue James Bond (Daniel Craig) and Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) in the streets of Matera (South of Italy) and which we see in the pre-credits of the film, is also for sale. This Jaguar XF described by the stunt team as “the perfect racing vehicle” is estimated between 50,000 and 70,000 pounds sterling.
The auction, divided into two parts, will also offer posters, accessories and costumes from the series for a total of 35 lots covering the 25 James Bonds. The auctions will be accessible online on Christie’s Live.
