How Much Per Month to Lease a Movie Car?

Leasing.com has been working out how much it would cost to lease movie cars

Most expensive on the list was James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 costing £28,787 per month – because to buy one today would cost about £3.45m. Although if you found the actual Connery Car, it’d be worth about £25m!
