Craig’s Centenary

007 numbered Aston Martin owned by Daniel Craig to be sold for charity at auction

 

A 2014 ‘Centenary Vanquish’ Aston Martin numbered 007 and owned by the actor Daniel Craig is to be sold at auction in New York in April.

 

Offered to benefit The Opportunity Network, a non-profit which counts not only Daniel Craig on its board but also Rachel Weisz as well, the customised left-hand, automatic car has a top speed of 183 mph. It features an interior personally crafted by Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s creative officer, that was guided by “Daniel Craig’s preference of denim and dark colours.”

 

Of selling the 6.0-litre V12 vehicle, Daniel Craig commented:

 

“This Aston Martin Vanquish is a tour-de-force of automobile engineering and a distinct pleasure to drive. While I will miss it, I am keen to further the very important work of The Opportunity Network with its sale.”

 

Christie’s will sell the left-hand drive, midnight blue with deep blue interior car on 20th April at their ‘Exceptional Sale’ and offer it with an estimate of £285,000 to £428,000 ($400,000 to $600,000, €322,000 to €483,000 or درهم1.5 million to درهم2.2 million). As a bonus, the winning bidder will also get an opportunity to visit the Aston Martin headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, England for a behind-the-scenes tour with Marek Reichman.

  1. Good for Daniel Craig for doing a bit for charity but I am guessing the car was gifted to him in the first place in exchange for publicity. The richer and more famous you are, the more you get for free!

  2. What a load of horseshit! Totally overpriced. He didn’t pay for it in the first place. Crap actor. Crap car. Forget it. Needs a dose of Rod and his wrecking ball. Where is that c**t by the way?

  3. The Steeple Times is a disgusting publication that does nothing to help dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine. You write about people like Daniel Craig giving money to charities that have no point to them. Why is he not giving this to help Madeleine? What is wrong with him? Has he no heart? FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW and Steeple get with it and start backing our work. NOW.

    • Oh shut up you old bag, I bet you’d love him to come and visit you and give you a jolly good rogering. I wouldn’t hold your though..
