Built by Chris Gilmour, an English artist with a penchant for working with cardboard, and titled "Aston Martin," this full-sized replica of James Bond's venerable Aston Martin DB5 comes complete with all of the brilliant gadgets seen in the movie Goldfinger. A close inspection reveals the car is equipped with cardboard machine guns, oil slick spray nozzle, radar tracking screen and bulletproof plate at the rear, among others. It even has a flip top shifter knob with the red ejector seat button. The parachute on the ejector seat? Unfortunately, we're pretty sure it too is made entirely of totally useless cardboard.

Odd choice, making the extended spinner out of a portion of board with red ink on it. Makes it look like it has just cut the legs off the valet at the Savoy. Is this what retired people do so as not to go insane?
