AN incredible collection of classic sports cars including "James Bond's Aston Martin" is being auctioned off.

A collection of the world's most famous class cars is heading for auction in the Amelia Island Concurs.

It started 25 years ago and has become a staple event in the collector car world.

And the auction will take place on 4 March.

McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty, said: "Our objective is to knit the enthusiast community together in a way that supports and protects the future of car culture.

"Amelia Island is synonymous with concours and motorsports heritage due to the steadfast efforts of Bill Warner and his team. We are incredibly proud to have the opportunity to build upon and scale Bill's vision."

The oldest motors dates back to 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Roi des Belges 'The Silver Fairy' in the style of Barker.

And a red Ferrari F40, considered by some as one of the greatest sports cars of all time, is also in the lot.

One of the most recognised cars in the world, an Aston Martin DB5, made famous by the James Bond franchise, is also up for grabs.

The make is considered the most famous Aston ever made, having starred in 1964's 'Goldfinger'.
