The detailed 1: 1 scale model is the likeness of the spy’s silver coupé that appears in the 1964 classic Goldener Finger and is equipped with everything you could want – except maybe an engine. The detailed model first appeared on Bring a Trailer last month and was sold for $ 201,007 on Monday November 2nd to a winner known simply as “akm”.
The handcrafted fiberglass DB5 is painted in exactly the same silver birch as the original and has matching leather upholstery. It also has an identical front grille, badge, trim details, bumpers, lights and 72-spoke wheels that are said to be from the British brand.
In addition, it includes all of the MI6 agent’s favorite toys, such as a removable ejector canopy, rear bullet guard, smoke screen machine and oil sprayer, tire lasers, and of course, artificial machine guns that emit the right lights and sounds.
Inside, the spy-style improvements continue with a phone in the driver’s door, a radar map with a tracker light, and even an eject button that creates a booming movement under the seat to mimic propulsion from the car.

The main thing that separates the two, of course, is a powertrain. Instead, the model is “carried by a tubular steel construction and mounted on a ladder frame with modified trailer axles”. It also dispenses with the original’s 4.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine, which can produce 290 hp.
For fun, the replica shows 007 miles on its fake odometer – got it? – and the pedals, indicators and the steering wheel are movable. That means, akm can do his best Goldener Finger Fantasy.
