James Bond Aston Martin DB5 replica offered by Corgi Model Club

Re-issued for the first time ever, the Corgi Model Club is currently offering model car fans a reproduction of the original Corgi Toys Aston Martin DB5 261 that was created after its initial appearance in the 1964 box office smash, Goldfinger.

Available for a limited time only, priced £19.99 with gifts, the reissued model comes complete with all its gadgets, and bonus extras.

The most famous Corgi Toy ever produced, the feature packed James Bond Aston Martin model was rush-released in late 1965, just in time for the festive season. In only seven weeks, Corgi sold three-quarters of a million of this marvellous metal model, causing stocks to completely run out by Christmas Day.

Despite this huge number – it went on to sell just under four million! – fully working mint condition examples in their original boxes are extremely rare and valuable fetching many £000s at auction.

Re-issued for the first time ever, Corgi Toys are now able to offer the original Corgi Toys Aston Martin DB5 261 that was created after its initial appearance in the 1964 box office smash, Goldfinger.

Not only have they colour matched this model to the unique gilded livery of the original DB5 toy, but it also comes complete with those all-important working James Bond gadgets: the opening roof and working spring loaded ejector seat for dispatching any unwanted Baddies; retractable machine guns for shooting at rogue enemy spies; telescopic bumper over-riders to force SMERSH operatives off the road; and working pop-up rear bullet proof metal screen to protect against SPECTRE assassins trailing you…
