<a href = ""; target = "_blank">Bonhams' eye-popping Aston Martin sale on May 21st</a> at the Aston Martin Works Service in Newport Pagnell, UK includes two amazing classic Astons identical to ones used in the James Bond films created for a die-hard 007 fan -- reports <a href = ""; target = "_blank">Driven</a>.

Painstakingly recreated by the Aston Martin Works Service from original models, the star of the show in our opinion is this <a href = ""; target = "_blank">1968 Aston Martin DBS Vantage Sports Saloon</a> perfectly replicating the one driven by George Lazenby in 1969′s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service with olive green paint and a black leather interior.

Expected to fetch up to about $115,000, this is in fact our favorite James Bond Aston Martin, the 1964 DB5 from Goldfinger being a tad overexposed – not that it isn’t an incredible car of course; in fact, the Bonhams sale also includes a steering wheel from the DB5, estimated at up to $5,800 alone.

The other 007 car in the sale is an exact replica of the 1986 <a href = ""; target = "_blank">V8 Volante</a> used in 1987′s The Living Daylights, also known as the “Prince of Wales” model because it mirrors some details originally commissioned by Prince Charles, estimated at up to $165,000. Both have secret agent style to spare, and we can all use some of that….
