The $1,000,000 Aston Martin DB5 sports car sold at auction in New York on Wednesday for $1 million.
The car was bought in January 2012 and sold for $2.2 million in February 2015.
The car, a rare example of the late 19th century car, was driven by Henry James who lived in the 1920s and died in 1953.
Its wheels were removed and its body rebuilt with metal plates.
James used the car as a study car and often took it on tour.
James was a pioneer in the development of cars that had a driver’s seat, and the DB5 is one of the few examples in the world to have this feature.
James was known for creating the first commercially available electric vehicle, the Model T, in 1929.
The DB5 was designed to have a maximum speed of 60 miles per hour and a top speed of 100 mph.
James also designed a small car, the T. He designed a version of the T that used a gas engine and was named the T12.
James died in 1959 and his daughter Mary invented the first commercial electric vehicle known as the Model S. It was a four-seat car that ran on gasoline and had a range of about 50 miles.
The first electric car in the United States, the Tesla Model S, was introduced in 2005.
