If you’re pretty sure you’re the biggest 007 fan ever, we’re betting this guy has you beat. But, he’s giving you a chance to catch up. Miami real estate investor and apparenly James Bond superfan Michael Dezer has decided to part ways with his beloved collection of James Bond memorabilia – a cinematic treasure trove that includes the world’s largest collection of Bond film cars.
Back in 2011, Dezer made headlines with his purchase of dozens of cars used in the iconic film franchise from the Bond Museum in Keswick, England. But his spending spree was far from over. Since then, he’s added to his collection, which today boasts 59 cars, plus motorcycles, boats, jetskis and tanks. He’s also got thousands of posters, photos and other 007 memorabilia.All were used tp establish his Cars of the Stars exhibition at his Auto Museum in Miami.
Jealous yet? Well, then whip out your debit card. Dezer recently announced he’s ready to unload the entire collection, valued at about $33.25 million. But if you’re thinking you can plunk down 10 bucks for a poster, think again. Dezer’s one caveat is that he won’t split up the trove. You buy the whole enchilada, or nothing at all.
We know, we know. It’s a tough decision. It’s a whole lotta coin, but consider a few of the automotive gems that could be parked in your garage soon:
There’s also a replica of the much loved AMC Hornet from The Man With The Golden Gun.

And if you’re just a bit to cash-strapped for such an epic purchase right now, perhaps you can catch Bond in Motion, the largest official collection of James Bond rides, on display at the London Film Museum beginning March 21. There, you’ll see “Little Nellie” from You Only Live Twice, Goldfinger‘s Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from Goldeneye as well as the 1/3 scale model of the Agusta Westland AW101 helicopter used in the filming of Skyfall, on display for the first time ever.
