This old Jensen CV-8 may lead Aston Martin fan's shaken and stirred - because its the car Sean Connery chose to drive at the height of his fame in the 1960's<br />
<br />
He is inextricably linked with Aston Martin but just as Sean Connery reached the peak of his 007 career it seemed the Scot in him influenced his decision to buy a cheaper, lesser-known sports car.<br />
<br />
The James Bond actor snubbed an Aston Martin DB5 that he famously drove in Goldfinger in 1965 for a second-hand Jensen CV8 car.<br />
<br />
It is thought he preferred nearly-new cars as they were less expensive and plumped for the Jensen CV8 as its British racing green bodywork was the same colour as his favourite football team Celtic.<br />
<br />
Now the 1964 CV8 that Connery owned and drove in the late 1960s has emerged for sale for £135,000.
