MICHAEL DEZER’S COLLECTION OF CARS
Which James Bond film is your favourite? Which car driven by James Bond would you like to
own? Now, the world’s largest collection of cars from the Bond movies (the so-called
Bondmobiles) can be yours for only £20 million. In addition to the Bond vehicles, the lucky
buyer will also get free James Bond souvenirs, including posters and photos.
The collection belongs to Michael Dezer, an American multimillionaire. His collection of over
1,500 cars is believed to be one of the largest in the world. It presents the evolution of
the automobile through American classics, European classics, military cars, electric cars and
micro-cars. Michael and his wife started building the collection years ago, and recently his son,
Gil, has joined them in this unusual hobby. The most valuable part of the collection are the 62
Bondmobiles, the cars which appeared in 25 movies about the world-famous British secret
agent James Bond.
How did this American multimillionaire manage to get all these Bondmobiles? After all, James
Bond is a British agent, so most of the cars were in the hands of British fans. To build his
collection, Michael Dezer employed two British experts, Stuart and Barbara Donovan.
The Donovans looked out for vehicles from the films and soon discovered a Bond collection
for sale in England. They contacted their employer immediately and Dezer flew his private jet
from Florida to England to meet them. Dezer bought the collection the same day and returned
home to Miami in time for supper. The Donovans then set about the difficult task of sending so
many vehicles to America.
Michael Dezer used to keep his cars in a car park built for this purpose, but last year he moved
them to a number of museums he owns. The Bondmobiles are on display in the Miami Auto
Museum. The other cars can be seen in museums in Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale.
In an unexpected move, this year Dezer has decided to sell his whole collection of Bondmobiles
for just £20 million, or a bit less if you’re a good negotiator. It’s a fantastic deal because
the 62 cars include the famous Ford Mustang and Aston Martin V8. The collection is for sale
on one condition. All Bondmobiles must go in one sale so the potential buyer must take them
all. The new owner can leave the cars in the museum in Miami, or can have them delivered
somewhere else – for example, back to Great Britain.
