Bond stunt cars from No Time To Die under the hammer

August 1, 2022

No Time To Die

In No Time To Die, Bond was reunited with his old, familiar Aston Martin DB5, first seen in 1964 in the third Bond film Goldfinger. The baddies drove Land Rover and Jaguar products in the last Bond film. A James Bond movie would not be a good Bond movie without one or more intense chase scenes.

Defender 110

A number of stunt cars from No Time To Die, which were not completely driven to rubble, are now going under the hammer. Highly unusual is the Defender 110 (expected revenue: £300,000 – £500,000) that was used for the spectacular all-terrain stunt scenes in No Time To Die. To be precise, it is the Defender with the unique VIN (chassis number) 007. This Defender played a role not only in the film shoot, but also in promotional activities prior to the premiere. Proceeds from the car will benefit the British Red Cross.

Ranger Rover Sport SVR

A Range Rover Sport SVR stunt car is also going under the hammer and is expected to fetch £80,000 to £120,000. The Range Rover was also used to chase Bond and is one of six used for filming.


Another famous chase scene from No Time To Die was set in southern Italy, on the narrow, winding roads of Matera. Here, the bad guys chose a Jaguar XF as their chase car. For the auction, one of the two copies featured in the scene prior to the film’s credits was brought in. The expected return is £50,000 to £70,000.

Defender V8

A brand new Defender 110 V8 Bond Edition, put together by SV Bespoke and inspired by the Defenders in No Time To Die, will also go under the hammer (expected proceeds £200,000 – £300,000). Only 300 Bond Editions were delivered worldwide and this one has a unique ’60 Years of Bond’ logo etched on the dashboard. Built to UK specifications, the Defender is fully street legal. Proceeds will benefit the conservation organization Tusk.

Bond memorabilia

The official, two-part charity auction Sixty Years of James Bond includes a total of sixty lots. First, the online auction opens on September 15 and runs until James Bond Day on October 5. The online auction includes 35 lots featuring posters, props, costumes, memorabilia and experiences from all twenty-five Bond films. The Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar stunt cars are among the 25 lots in the live auction, which will take place on September 28 at Christie’s and EON Productions, the British film production company that has produced the James Bond films since 1962. Fans and collectors from around the world can bid online.
