A car that starred in two of super-spy James Bond's most famous adventures is expected to make around £3.5 million when it is sold at auction.

The 1964 Aston Martin DB5, which was driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger and Thunderball, comes complete with gadgets including a bullet-proof shield and revolving number plates.

Its owner, American DJ Jerry Lee, bought the car for 12,000 US dollars in 1969 and hopes the sale will raise money for his charitable foundation.

He said: "The James Bond car has brought me much enjoyment for some 40 years.

"Even as I sell it and use the proceeds to fund the Jerry Lee Foundation, the car will continue to give me great pleasure as it furthers the mission of the foundation to do good around the world."

Mr Lee set up his foundation more than 10 years ago to support education and anti-crime projects around the world.

The car will be sold at auction in London on October 27.
