A silver Aston Martin DB5 sports car driven by Sean Connery in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger sold for 2.6 million pounds ($4.1 million) at an auction on Wednesday.

The Aston Martin specially outfitted for the world's most famous spy was the star attraction at a classic car auction in London that also saw rocker Rod Stewart's Lamborghini sell for 600,000 pounds ($946,000).

Auctioneer Peter Haynes had earlier estimated the Bond supercar could have snagged as much as 3.5 million pounds ($5.5 million).

Bond's gadget master Q outfitted the car with an ejection seat, machine guns, radar and nail-throwing machine.

American broadcaster Jerry Lee, who purchased the car in 1969 for $12,000 sold it to raise money for his charitable foundation.
