To ensure authenticity, the car receives the same Q treatment as the iconic car that starred in the film back in 1964. To that end, there’s the radar tracker and deployable machine guns to locate and neutralise villains, while the bullet-proof screen on the rear deck, revolving number plates and wheel-mounted tyre scythes are there to fend them off.

Along with the radar tracker, the interior is kitted-out with the hidden telephone and all-important (operational) ejector seat. Just like the movie car, the model is finished in silver birch and rides on wire wheels.

Lift the front-hinged bonnet and the DB5 reveals a Lego recreation of the 4-litre straight-six engine, which produced 282bhp in 1964; enough to send the Bond car from 0 to 60mph in around eight seconds and on to a 142mph top speed.

This Aston Martin DB5 model follows on from other Lego recreations, including the orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS that featured a working PDK gearbox, and the 3600-piece Bugatti Chiron
