One of the many striking features of the Aston Martin DB5 featured in GOLDFINGER is the ejector seat; activated by a button concealed inside the gearshift knob.
The original prop was crafted using a combination of found-parts and specially machined components and did not function; it was purely cosmetic. The same prop was recreated for 2012’s SKYFALL.
Now Factory Entertainment is making it possible for you to bring this sliver of James Bond’s life home with a replica of the gear shift with a hidden ejector seat button. This replica has been copied from surviving material in the EON Productions Archive and is crafted of aluminum and resin. Its flip-up lid features a magnetic closure and the famous push button switch. Each replica is permanently mounted on a wooden display stand.
Each replica is packaged in a gift box and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity booklet. The edition size is 1,964 pieces. It is expected to ship in December of this year and can be pre-ordered now at FactoryEnt.com.
