A striking 1986 BMW belonging to the late and great Sir Sean Connery has been sold via the on-line only classic car auction site The Market for £46,000.
The left-hand drive BMW 635 CSi, was bought by the James Bond star in the late 1980s, when he lived in Marbella. Connery later sold it in 1998. Since then, the five speed manual has been shuttled between dry storage units in the UK and Luxembourg. That would, in part, explain the low mileage along with the fact that when Connery owned the car his career was at its most busiest starring in films such as The Rock, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Hunt for Red October.
Tributes to the 90-year-old rolled in from the worlds of entertainment, sport and politics when he died in his sleep aged 90 on 31 October 2020. As Connery once said, “some age, others mature”.
