The car sold for $4.6 million, though the identity of the purchaser is not yet known.

October 27, 12:40 p.m.

It does not come with a guaranteed licence to kill, but the car used in two of the most famous James Bond movies, does come equipped with an ejector seat, machine guns, rotating license plates, and a rear bulletproof shield. The car, one of two models used in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball," came to represent the James Bond ethos: sexy, dangerous and debonair.

Now, it could be yours for the small price of $5.5 million dollars. At least that's the estimate at Wednesday night's London auction. It will likely be one of the highest prices ever paid for the car.

Who doesn't want to drive James Bond's car?
