8Aston Martin from Goldfinger reportedly found in UK barn, set for auction

In 1964 a special effects designer used an Aston Martin DB4 as a practice prop for the real DB4 used in the movie Goldfinger. In 1974 he put it in a garage, where it sat until recently. Now it's being put up for sale at Aston Martin's annual factory auction, held at Newport Pagnell and run by Bonhams.

7Car-laden James Bond Museum opens in the UK

For all the museums throughout the world, it's remarkable that it has taken this long to create one devoted solely to James Bond, when even Britney Spears got her own permanent exhibit years ago. But the omission has been redressed, with Englishman Peter Nelson opening The Bond Museum tomorrow in Keswick, northwestern England.

AddSo, that James Bond hydrogen villain isn't all that realistic, huh?

This year's big James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, had a distinct hydrogen theme through and through. Starting with the redesigned Ford Ka that was emblazoned with hydrogen stickers - even though Ford doesn't actually, and as far as we know isn't planning to, make hydrogen versions of any of its production machines. The hydrogen party didn't end there, though. Later in the movie, the bad guy's entire lair was fueled on hydrogen gas, and the entire building ended up incinerating itself in a Hin

35Autoblog goes to the movies: No solace in this quantum

After Daniel Craig's triumphant return as James Bond in Casino Royale, my family and I were really looking forward to seeing his sophomore effort in Quantum of Solace. We were among the guests at a Ford preview screening of the new Bond flick last night, and after we walked past the gorgeous Aston Martin DBS placed in the lobby (talk about product placement), the movie got off to a promising start. The opening chase sequence with Bond's DBS being pursued by a crew of Alfa Romeo 159s was classic

21Bottom 10: Worst James Bond cars ever

Being somewhat of a national treasure, the James Bond image is understandably important to the Brits. It can really boost public morale to have Bond associate with the most beautiful women in the world, use the most incredible gadgets, and drive the world's finest cars. It can be equally devastating, then, to have Bond engaging in any of these activities with anything less than the best. So it comes as little surprise that Channel 4 has called out the Bond creators for some of their awful vehicu

3Our kind of recycling: Full-size cardboard Aston Martin DB5

Even "normal" Aston Martin DB5's are priced in the stratosphere, but Mr. Bond's up-armored version would likely command a premium, were the provenance verifiable. Just like foam, clay, and dynoc make very convincing styling bucks for automakers, cardboard in the right hands can take a pile of Two Buck Chuck shipping vessels and create '60s Aston gold. Creating rather than destroying, perhaps someone should tip off the dude who's smashing musclecars together in pursuit of some kind of artistic ex

15Quantum of Solace trailer shows little bit of Aston, lot of movie

We have to admit, when we heard the next Bond film was going to be called "Quantum of Solace," we kind of scrunched our faces a little bit. Still, Casino Royale was so good that we figured we'd give it the old innocent-until-proven-guilty treatment. Well, now we've seen the trailer, and it looks so bloody good we're all verklempt. We clapped at the end. And then we watched it again.

26Enough is Enough: Bond crashes Aston DBS into wall

Despite a couple of disastrous and debilitating setbacks, filming of the next Bond flick, the Quantum of Solace, is back, with production continuing in the mountains of Carrara, Italy. Unfortunately, these newest shots from the set are further proof that the writers and producers have absolutely no regard for the hotness that is the Aston Martin DBS. To their credit, the death of the DBS was deliberate, as 007 is chased through a rock quarry by a handful of villains piloting Alfa Romeos. The 15-
