A James Bond fan, known simply as “akm”, has splashed $201,007 on an engine-less replica of Aston Martin DB5 that is jampacked with all the gadget seen in the 007’s iconic vehicle.

Other features includes a rear axle tire slashers; a taillight-mounted oil sprayer; a smoke screen machine; faux machine guns with strobe lights and sound effects, and more.
