Aston Martin has had its ties with the British spy since Goldfinger, the third film in the James Bond series. The automotive brand has then supplied the secret agent with a slew of vehicles including the iconic DB5, which happens to be making its return on the big screen in the upcoming No Time to Die.

That said, Aston Martin and Corgi (a British toy company) have put together a life-size replica of the Corgi DB5 complete with its box. This display is part of the campaign to promote the 25th installment in the series and celebrates the comeback of the DB5 since the late Sir Sean Connery drove this Aston Martin model alongside Goldfinger’s henchmen in a thrilling car chase scene.

Located at The Coaling Jetty, Battersea Power Station, the Corgi box and car will be on display until October 2, 2021.

According to the luxury carmaker, the Corgi car on display features a broad selection of working gadgets that fans will recognize from the classic James Bond film including rotating number plates, a retractable bulletproof rear shield, extending front over-riders, and of course pop-out machine guns.

“We are really honored to be marking the start of the No Time to Die campaign today with this exciting unveil. Aston Martin’s relationship with James Bond spans decades and the DB5 is, without question, the most famous car in the world by virtue of its (over) 50 years of association. Working with EON Productions and Chris Corbould to build 25 of the DB5 Goldfinger Continuations was a truly unique project for everyone involved at Aston Martin. Now, to work with Corgi — another quintessential British brand — and to see James Bond’s most cherished car sitting inside a to-scale toy box in central London is quite outstanding,” said Aston Martin Lagonda’s EVP and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

The upcoming film will also showcase other cars from Aston Martin including the classic Aston Martin V8, the brand’s super GT — DBS, and the exceptional Aston Martin Valhalla.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role for one last time as James Bond in No Time to Die which will be launched on September 30.
