This exciting and iconic car is in all original condition with none of the reproduction accessories, rife with this issue.
The car is fully functioning, complete with both figures. This James Bond Aston Martin has a very close to mint, all original, rich, glossy gold finish. Occasional tin y mark to the paint.
Suspension is fine on all four wheels. Fine tread original tyres are well-shaped.

The 1st issue outer box is a very fresh example with bright colours on crisp, complete card. Note that since it is 1st issue, there is no shading detail around the lettering ASTON MARTIN DB5 on the box face and no thick black border around the JAMES BOND’S lettering, too.
