James Bond’s wrecked Aston Martin DBS bought for $350,000 | Rpmgo.com

Back in April, the £134,000 ($233,000) Aston Martin DBS used for filming the most recent James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, plunged into Lake Garda, in Italy, when Fraser Dunn, an Aston Martin technician who was driving the car to the set lost control, piled thorugh an iron railing and plunged into the lake. As you can see in the photos, the car was completely destroyed, but the driver got away with only minor injuries. Considering all that, you might say that this was a $233k hole in the movie’s budget. But, thanks to eccentric collectors, that wasn’t the case. Because last week Daniel Craig, the movie’s star, announced that a private collector paid £200,000 (approx. $350,000) for the wreck. So not only didn’t MGM lose any money on the car, but it also made a nice profit.

And here’s a video made right after the crash, which shows the car completely wrecked.
