Police hunt for rare 'Bond' car after theft

A RARE Aston Martin DB4 GT sports car, similar to one used in James Bond movies, has been stolen from outside a Melbourne house.

The car, believed to be the only one of its kind in Australia, was parked on Whitehorse Road at Surrey Hills, in Melbourne's east, when it was taken last night.

The car, silvery-green in colour, was worth between $250,000 and $300,000, a police spokeswoman said.

The DB4 GT model made its public debut at the London Motor Show in 1959.

A prototype was driven that year by motor racing legend Stirling Moss in the International Trophy meeting at Silverstone.

In author Ian Fleming's 1959 novel Goldfinger,  secret service agent James Bond got an Aston Martin after his vintage Bentley was destroyed.

But movie producers decided on the then current DB5 model when they began production for the film in 1963.

Rare Aston stolen

A rare Aston Martin DB4 GT sports car similar to one used in James Bond movies has been stolen from outside a Melbourne house.

The car, believed to be the only one of its kind in Australia, was parked on Whitehorse Road, at Surrey Hills, in Melbourne's east, when it was taken between 8pm and 8.30pm (AEST) yesterday.

The car is valued between $250,000 and $300,000 and is silvery green in colour, a police spokeswoman said.

"Investigators would particularly like to speak to anyone who may have seen a flat-top tow truck in the area just prior to the theft," she said.

The DB4 GT model made its public debut at the London Motor Show of 1959.

A prototype was driven that same year by motor racing legend Stirling Moss in the International Trophy meeting at Silverstone.

When Ian Fleming's novel Goldfinger was published in 1959, he gave James Bond an Aston Martin after his vintage Bentley was destroyed.

But the actual movie producers decided on the then current DB5 model when they began production for the film in 1963.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the theft or have information about the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
