The Aston Martin and Jaguar from the Bond film Die Another Day which have been put up for auction. See SWNS story SWBOND: The world?s largest private collection of James Bond cars has been put up for sale - for £20 MILLION. Super-rich Michael Dezer bought dozens of vehicles from the James Bond museum in Keswick in 2011. It included the tank from Goldeneye, the Q Boat from The World Is Not Enough and SIX Aston Martins.  Over the next two years he continued to build the collection, adding more cars from the latest film, Skyfall.

Do you know your Octopussy from your Oddjob? Can you name the Bond film in which a brilliant white Lotus Esprit Turbo plays a starring role? If so, an upcoming auction of fully licensed James Bond vehicles could be for you.

Multi-millionaire and American Bond enthusiast Michael Dezer is selling his enormous collection of Bond film props that have served their time in his museum in Miami.

Mr Dezer's collection contains six Aston Martins, the Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me and even a yacht used in From Russia With Love, among a plethora of other rare and highly collectible items.

The 007 treasure trove is being sold as one complete lot and it is set to fetch an eye-watering £20 million.

Mr Dezer, who is one of Donald Trump's business partners, has enlisted the help of his British representatives Stuart and Barbara Donovan to find a buyer for the collection.

Stuart, who sourced many of the cars for Mr Dezer in the first place, told The Express: "When I first heard about the collection I phoned Michael and he flew in on his private jet.

"We picked him up, he then bought all of the cars and flew home later on."

The private collection is said to be the best in the world and Stuart revealed to the Daily Star that it contains, "six Aston Martins including two DB5s, one of which was Pierce Brosnan's in Goldeneye.

"It also includes both of the ice cars."

Stuart believes the collection simply isn't receiving the appreciation it deserves in Miami so he and his wife are hoping to ship it back to a British buyer so the public can once again enjoy the famous vehicles.

The well-heeled buyer will also receive thousands of items of James Bond memorabilia, including toys, posters and photos, as well motorcycles, cars and tanks from the films.
