James Bond's Aston Martin in charity auction

LONDON (AP) - For sale: used sports car, one debonair but dangerous owner.

The Aston Martin V12 DBS coupe which featured in the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" is the top attraction at a charity auction marking the 50th anniversary of the first 007 film, "Dr. No."

Christie's auctioneers said Thursday that the car, a 2008 model, is expected to sell for at least 100,000 pounds ($160,000) at an invitation-only auction on October 5. Proceeds will benefit Barnardo's, a British children's charity.

Nine other items, including sunglasses worn by Daniel Craig in "Quantum of Solace," will also be offered October 5 in support of other charities.

Christie's said 40 items will be offered through an online auction from September 28 to October 8 to benefit UNICEF.
