LEGO has offered two officially licensed DB5 models recently, the large Creator Expert and the smaller Speed Champions model. But fans across the world have created their own Bond inspired cars for years, and one that stands out is this recent Aston Martin DB5 model by Nard Verbong.

Nard Verbong was able to work in several actual gadgets in this model. Some of those are simply add-on functions but this creation also has 3 built-in functions: a working ejector seat, moving bullet-proof shield and extendable bumpers.
