Ahead of No Time to Die‘s release, British automaker Aston Martin has revived one of the James Bond franchise’s most iconic vehicles of all time: the DB5 from Goldfinger.

Not satisfied with just re-creating the original car, the company set out to make it movie-accurate, with all the gadgets and tricks installed and hidden when not in use.

Seen from the outside, the car looks just like a regular DB5, with aluminum body panels, a steel chassis, and powered by a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated inline-six engine that can push out an impressive 290 horsepower. Look closer, however, and you’ll find a whole range of sneaky gadgets installed at 007’s disposal. The exterior carries spray outlets that can deploy both a smokescreen or oil slick to throw pursuers off-track, while other weapons deal heavy damage with battering rams and a simulated tired slasher. There’s even a removable seat roof panel, although the ejector seat, unfortunately, stays in the fictional world.

As to the interior, it’s just as geared up as the outside. There’s a telephone on the driver-side door, a simulated radar tracker screen, a hidden weapons tray under the seat, remote control to operate all the different gadgets, and a center console-mounted switchgear.

Only 25 of the Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation have been built, and all of them are currently being shipped out to their new owners.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Dodge has created the world’s most powerful SUV.
