There are so many variations of the James Bond Aston Martin! Some experts have whole sites dedicated to them (and even then I get confused!) I shall try and keep things simple. There are three variations you want of #270: the first issue with silver bumpers, the second issue with gold bumpers (the most common) and the last issue with flared wheel arches and no tyre slashers. (That version also has Whizzwheels, I’m afraid, but they don’t look at all bad, Corgi having made a bit of an effort.)

This one has the rare silver bumpers and it is in excellent condition. The roof needs a bit of persuasion to lie flat and the baddie is reluctant sometimes to get ejected! It’s probably best to assume that the ejector isn’t working but the rear shiled, front guns and number plates all work nicely.  Boxes for these are hard to come by as they were  a bubble affair, and tended to be discarded much more easily than the traditional type and with it would go the secret instruction envelope, spare baddie and lapel badge.

The paintwork and chrome are super, really good. The tyre slashers have lost much of their red colour but this remains a nice example of a difficult to find early version.
