James Bond’s gadget-laden DB5 to go on show in Maastricht

| 12 Dec 2012

A DB5 that featured in the James Bond film Goldfinger is to go on show at InterClassics & TopMobiel in The Netherlands from 11-13 January.

The car is one of just two originals that are fully equipped for the fast-paced life of international espionage.

It comes complete with two machine guns, retractable battering-ram bumpers, revolving numberplates, immobilising wheel hubs, a smoke, nail and oil spreader, a bullet-proof rear shield and, of course, an ejector seat.

Now worth millions, the car was developed by Ken Adams who drew on his WW2 RAF experiences when he flew a heavily armed Hawker Typhoon.

The DB5 is usually kept at the Louwman Museum in The Hague.
