No Need For New Plates: James Bond's Finest Drive Is Up For Sale

If you're a dabbler in need of new wheels, look no further. James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 from the original Goldfinger movie is now up for sale to the highest bidder.  And it's already been outfitted with everything an abbracadabbling spy guy would need: hidden machine guns that pop out from the side, revolving license plates that actually work, oil slickers and smokescreen makers and even a bullet proof windshield.  The car's original ejector seat comes standard, too; it just doesn't work. Still, when it comes to automotive safety, there's not a car out there that could hold a candle -- or a sub machine gun - to this baby. Of course, this is 007 we're talking about, and the Aston won't come cheap. The estimated final sale price -- over five million. [via]
