Chassis no. SCFRLHAV6KGR01201. Grey over black leather. 5.2/715hp, 8-speed ZF semi-automatic, mechanical limited slip differential, twin diffusers, commemorative plaques.

Evaluation: Featured in the James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’ and used for promo appearances. One owner, who loaned the car during filming. The car has covered 850 miles, of which 800 were reportedly done during filming. The engine plaque says “Inspected by Daniel Craig”, the sill plaque says “Car featured in No Time to Die, 1 of 1” even though a saleroom notice later confirmed that two cars were used for the film and a “1 of 2” replacement plaque would be provided. A nearly new car with only slight road dust on the wheels and calipers. The driver’s seat bolster shows the only signs of use. Otherwise a mint condition, special, cool car.

Bottom Line: Screen time in any Bond film, good or bad, has repeatedly proven to add to a car’s value, and here is yet more proof. The price for a standard DBS Superleggera in the UK when new in 2019 was about a quarter-million pounds.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
