If you’ve ever wanted to live like secret agent James Bond, here’s your chance.

EON Productions, the company behind the James Bond movie franchise, is selling items from the 24th James Bond film, ‘Spectre’, with auction house Christie’s in London on Thursday.

Highlights include the secret agent’s Tom Ford suit, Omega wristwatch, and the keys to his luxurious Sportss car: the incredibly rare Aston Martin DB10.

Ten bespoke Aston Martins were created for the film. Eight of these were used to make ‘Spectre’, all of which were either destroyed during filming or modified beyond roadworthy use.

The two others were reserved for display purposes at the film’s premieres. The car now on auction is the only DB10 to ever be sold to the public.

It features a plaque signed by Daniel Craig, the British actor who played the MI6 spy, and is expected to sell for up to $2.1 million.

Four watches from the film are on sale, including an Omega Seamaster 300 worn by Craig, which is expected to fetch $29,000.

A two-piece dinner suit worn by Agent 007 is expected to sell for up to $43,000, while a martini shaker and two cocktail glasses — Bond film staples — are expected to go for $4,000.

Fourteen smaller items are being auctioned online throughout the week and the DB10, along with other rare items, will be sold at an invite-only event at Christie’s on Thursday.
