It should come to no surprise that the man who is responsible for creating James Bond was a car guy himself. Ian Fleming--famed author, Bond creator, man of mystery--had this Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback commissioned in 1953 for a close friend. It traveled all around the world, only to be left in a garage untouched for the last 30 years. Now--it can be yours, provided your pockets are deep enough. It's going up for auction at the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Show on August 15. Price tag? Most likely north of $1.8 million.
