Corgi is marking the 50th anniversary of the first ever James Bond movie, and the launch of the 23rd film - Skyfall - with a special replica model of the official movie car, the Aston Martin DB5.

The 1:36 scale model will launch in August and will be priced at £15.99. It will incorporate new tooling to match the specification of the Skyfall movie.

The Aston Marton DB5 first appeared in Goldfinger in 1964 and went on to appear in eight other movies. The car recently topped a poll as the most treasured object of the James Bond movie series.

"We are delighted to bring this new offering to fans of the James Bond line," said Martyn Weaver, marketing manager at Corgi. "It is a privilege to capture a model with such iconic presence as the Aston Martin DB5, and we are sure that James Bond fans all over the world will enjoy the replica's authentic qualities.

"By creating this type, we hope to provide fans with their own piece of movie history for them to enjoy for years to come."
