The Leaked Aston Martin DB5 LEGO Kit Looks Like It's In Excruciating Pain

The Aston Martin DB5, famed for its role as the car of choice for James Bond, and its handsome and elegant design, does not translate well in LEGO it turns out.

Aston Martin and the social media accounts for the James Bond franchise have been teasing a new LEGO box kit for some time, and anyone with any sense knew it would be the iconic 007 DB5. But I don’t think anyone expected this:


It looks like it just saw the torture scene from Casino Royale. Or perhaps it watched itself be blown up at the end of Skyfall. Or maybe it heard that it was supposed to believably keep up with a Ferrari F355 GTS in GoldenEye and is feeling the pressure. Whatever it is, this leaked image of the box kit has not done David Brown justice.

Of course, it’s entirely possible this is not the actual box kit, or not the final version, but.. it likely is. It’s astonishing how there isn’t a single beautiful detail from the actual car anywhere on that model, but that’s what happens when you try to turn bricks into curves, I guess.
