Bond auction: Your Roadster has arrived

Classic cars, M’s letter opener, first-edition Fleming books and Daniel Craig’s sunglasses: all up for grabs in charity 50 Years of James Bond auction.

CHEQUEBOOKS AT THE ready: the James Bond memorabilia going under the hammer at a special 50th anniversary of the movie franchise has been revealed.

The line-up doesn’t include some of the fantasy lots we dreamed about when we heard of the charity auction last week. It does however include signed first-edition of some of Ian Fleming’s books upon which the films were based, poker props from Casino Royale, a pre-reproduction Roadster from The World is Not Enough, costumes worn by stars in some of the films and more.

Some are strictly for Bond fans only – decide for yourself:
