10 James Bond cars you can afford

Sure, an Aston Martin DB5 like the one James Bond drives in "Skyfall" will cost you an arm and a leg, but if you want to drive a car like the movie super-spy, you may not have to shell out big bucks after all.

1964 Aston Martin DB5

  • Driven in: Skyfall
  • Used price: $450,000

In "Skyfall," the latest Bond film, the British super-spy goes back to the classic Aston Martin DB5, although a new Aston Martin would certainly have been faster, handled better and been less expensive to boot.

The one pictured here certainly isn't cheap. It's the original movie car used in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball." It was sold by RM Auctions in 2010 for $4.6 million.

Compared to that, maybe the $450,000 you'd have to pay for one that never appeared on the big screen isn't so bad after all.

But while you might think that to get your hands on a car like the ones James Bond drives, you'd have to pay a lot of money, that's not always true. Hagerty Insurance, which specializes in collectible cars, pulled together this list of past Bond cars, including something for almost any budget.
