Fans of James Bond now have the chance to live out their wildest dreams, as Aston Martin have released a 2/3 scale replica of Bond's classic car complete with smoke screens, machine guns, and other gadgets.

While the Aston Martin DB5 'Junior No Time To Die Edition' is not road-legal and costs a whopping £90,000, it is a fantastic collector's item as only 125 will be made.

By pushing a button in the dashboard, the headlights flip and reveal a twin set of M134 mini machine guns.

Don't worry, they don't fire live ammunition, but will light up and make noise. You can also eject a smokescreen from the exhaust to aid a successful getaway. You might need it—the replica car has a top speed of just 45mph.

Just like the original DB5, the replica is a convertible that is large enough for an adult and child to sit next to each other, but you might not want to use it for moving house as it's only at a 66% scale of the original.

The DB5 appeared in seven James Bond films, most famously in 1965's Thunderball. It was also driven by Daniel Craig in the more recent Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre films, as well as by Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies.

The limited edition replica has been launched ahead of the release of No Time To Die, Daniel Craig's fifth—and he claims final—outing as the legendary MI6 agent.

Originally set to be directed by Danny Boyle, it changed director to Cary Fukunaga and hits cinemas on September 30th.

Earlier this month, Daniel Craig opened up on his views on who he believes should play James Bond next, after weeks of rumours that the spy is set to change gender with Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the helm.
