Corgi James Bond Aston Martin DB5 No Time To Die
Rebuilt by Q at the conclusion of Spectre, 007's iconic Aston Martin DB5 returns again in No Time To Die, the much-anticipated and soon-to-be-released latest instalment in the James Bond film franchise. Due in cinemas this coming September, it marks the final appearance as our hero for the fabulous Daniel Craig. Featuring a star-studded cast and a theme by the hyper-popular Billie Eilish, it is sure to be a bit of an epic, and great value for the ticket price at nearly three hours long.
This DB5 features a brand new Italian registration plate, as per the version used for filming, and this classic is never far away from the inevitable action that follows James Bond wherever he goes, as can plainly be seen on Corgi's intriguing new replica.
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend, Felix Leiter from the CIA, turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected (no surprises there then), leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Corgi has correctly modelled this new 1/36 scale version with an Italian plate - this will surely be explained in the film. Packed with incredible stunts throughout, as we would expect, the DB5 is seen chasing through beautiful Italian scenery and clearly some of the walls come a little too close. Screeching into a pretty square, the Bond and his DB5 are met with a hail of bullets, hence the marks on all the windows here. The headlights disappear and two machine guns appear, with the baddies being 'taken out' as 007 performs some impressive doughnuts, whilst returning fire.
So don't delay, get your replica now, so you're ready for all the action when the movie is released later this year.
