Licence to Thrill: James Bond items to go under the hammer in auction of 007 memorabilia (and yes, it includes THOSE swimming trunks)

By AMY OLIVER

Steamy: The infamous swimming trunks worn by Daniel Craig in Bond film Casino Royale are set to fetch £2,840 to £4,630 when they are auctioned for charity next week

They sent Daniel Craig's career into the stratosphere and set a million women's hearts racing.
Now THOSE blue swimming trunks, which Craig wore during THAT scene in Casino Royale, are set to make hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity in an online auction that starts today.
The shorts are just one of 50 items of James Bond memorabilia to be sold in Christie's charity sale to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first 007 movie Dr No.

...And this is what they look like on: Daniel Craig emerges from the sea in THOSE shorts during THAT scene in 2006 Bond film Casino Royale

Other lots include a one-third scale model of an Aston Martin DB5 used in the filming of Skyfall, the next Bond adventure set to hit the big screen in October.
The car was used in earlier Bond films and has become closely associated with the fictional double agent.
Michael G Wilson, who along with Barbara Broccoli is guardian of the Bond films, said: 'In Skyfall we go back to the old Aston Martin, the DB5, we bring that out of mothball.

Killer ride: Another Aston Martin built in 2008 and used in the opening sequence of the last Bond movie Quantum of Solace has a price tag of £100,000 to £150,000

'We used it in the film but we had to make a model of it. We made an extra model, one third scale that was made for the film and I think that’s a pretty unique thing to get.'
The model is expected to fetch £30,000 to £40,000, while another Aston Martin built in 2008 and used in the opening sequence of the last Bond movie Quantum of Solace has a price tag of £100,000 to £150,000.
There is also a special edition of Bollinger champagne set to make £10,000 to £15,000.

Expensive tipple: There is also a special edition of Bollinger champagne up for grabs... if you have a spare £10,000 to £15,000 of course

Those with eyes on Craig's swimming shorts may also like to go for the pair of Tom Ford sunglasses he wore in Quantum of Solace. But with an expected price tag of £2,000 to £3,000 it may not be wise to take them to the beach.

Predictions: A selection of 10 tarot cards used by Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die are expected to sell for £740 to £1,100

Forty lots will be sold online between September 28 and October 8, while 10 of the star items have been reserved for a live auction on October 5 - 'Global James Bond Day' at Christie’s offices in South Kensington, London.

'I think what we wanted to do was to celebrate the 50th anniversary in a meaningful way and let people have the opportunity to buy some of the things in our archive that we could raise money for charity from,' Mr Wilson said, adding: 'There’s a lot of things from £1,000 on up, really. There’s plenty of things for a whole range of collectors.'
