A new study has valued James Bond’s garage at £7,277,426 – and Sean Connery’s cars top the table.

It’s the original 007, Scotland’s Sean Connery, proves himself to be the definitive Bond in the car stakes. His garage has collectively increased in value 7134% – jumping from £17,894 to £1,294,414.

In second place in the Battle of the Bonds is a surprise. George Lazenby, who only did one movie, has an Aston Martin DBS which ahs increased in value from £4473 to £214,950 – a 4705% value increase.
