Entrepreneur Max Reid patiently held on through fierce bidding to purchase the 1965 Aston Martin DB5 used in the film GoldenEye on the 14th February 2001.
The sale was one of more than 250 lots from all 21 Bond films, all for auction at the largest ever sale of gadgets and garments from 007 movies.
The 1965 Aston Martin DB5 subsequently made the Guinness book of World Records as the highest price ever paid for James Bond memorabilia.
The James Bond auction attracted the stars, with DJ Chris Evans and Billie Piper attending the sale in Christie's South Kensington auction house, London, but arrived too late to bid for the Bond DB5.
Following the sale Mr Reid said: 'I think I got the Aston Martin for a bargain, a great price and I would have paid much more for it. February 14 is a big day for my wife.' Adding:
'I had two reasons for the purchase - it's a great present for my wife and it will be wonderful publicity for my business as well. This is the first auction I have been to but I am a big fan of James Bond.'
