David Beckham eyes James Bond's car

Soccer superstar David Beckham wants to add to his car collection by buying James Bond's Aston Martin, according to a report.

The Los Angeles Galaxy ace is rumored to be planning a $160,000 bid for the V12 DBS when it comes up for auction next month (Oct12).

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "(Beckham) is a huge Bond fan and has always wanted to own something classy from the films. So when he heard the auction was taking place, he was desperate to bag the car for himself."

The car, one of several used in 2008 Bond movie Quantum of Solace, is among a horde of 007 memorabilia going up for auction at Christie's in London to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first movie in the franchise, Dr. No.

The proceeds will be donated to children's charity Barnardo's.
