Classic & Sports Car – Build your own Bond DB5

Brick-by-interlocking-brick, you can now create your very own James Bond Aston Martin DB5, thanks to Lego's latest release.

The real car, from the 1964 film Goldfinger, featured a host of gadgets from Q's workshop, and all of these can be found in this 1:8 scale, 1290-piece Lego Creator Expert version, priced at £129.99 and available from today.

And, just like the original, it has been finished in Silver Birch, with a detailed six-cylinder engine under the bonnet.

As you might expert from an authentic replica, it features revolving number plates, a working ejector seat, a bulletproof screen, front-wing mounted machine guns and wheel-mounted tyre scythes.

And if you open the doors you'll find a telephone hidden in a secret compartment, as well as a radar tracker.

Designed to give a 'challenging and rewarding building experience full of nostalgia', the finished car stands over 3” (10cm) high, is 13” (34cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide.

If you fancy it, head to your nearest Lego shop, or buy online.
