James Bond's 1965 Aston Martin DB5 coupe is auctioned for 2.1 million dollars at the RM Vintage Motor Cars in Arizona auction at the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, in this January 20, 2006 file photo. It promises the busy professional "power, beauty and soul" in a sculpted aluminium body: the Aston Martin car of James Bond fame is a popular choice for London's financial elite. The brand, put up for sale by struggling Ford Motor Co., may soon be bought by a consortium led by Dave Richards, head of the performance car specialists Prodrive; other bidders such as British buyout firm Doughty Hanson also remain in the running.
