The Aston Martin driven by Sean Connery in the James Bond movies is going on sale at a London auction in October.

The silver 1964 Aston Martin DB5, dubbed by car auctioneers RM Auctions as "the world's most famous car," is expected to fetch at least $5 million.

The car is one of only two original Aston Martins featured on screen with Sean Connery behind the wheel in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball." It comes with Bond gadgets including fake machine guns, revolving number plates and smoke screen.

The model is being sold by U.S. radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, who bought it for $12,000 in 1969. It has since remained in his home and rarely been seen publicly.

RM Auctions said Tuesday the car is going under the hammer Oct. 27.
