LEGO Presents a Life-Sized Version of James Bond's Aston Martin DB5

LEGO and the 007 franchise have joined forces to celebrate LEGO’s 90th anniversary and James Bond‘s 60th anniversary at the toy company’s newly-refurbished flagship store in London’s Leicester Square. Housed in the 805sqm space, LEGO’s largest shop in the world, are life-sized replicas of James Bond as a mini-figure, Blofield’s cat, and the iconic 007 Aston Martin DB5.

According to LEGO, the 1,037 kilogram DB5 model is made up of 357,954 bricks and took nearly 57 days to build. Features include a rotating license plate, functional headlights, a light-up dashboard, and an authentic steering wheel.

A smaller 298-piece James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5 Speed Champions model will also be offered in-stores and online to commemorate the 1964-era icon. Head over to the 007 website for more information.
