    Cool James Bond's Aston Martin for sale

    http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/201...in-up-for-sale

    James Bond's famous Aston Martin car, complete with hidden machine guns and a smoke screen, is up for grabs for a cool STG3 million ($A4.5 million).

    Swiss millionaire Thomas Straumann put the vehicle up for sale in Britain with the price tag, the Swiss newspaper NZZ am Sonntag said.
    Straumann, a shareholder in a dental implant firm, bought the Aston Martin DB5 in 2006 and spent three years restoring the car driven by Sean Connery as the fictional British spy in Goldfinger and Thunderball.
    After buying the car for $US2.7 million ($A2.65 million) at a US auction, Straumann had 3000 hours of work put into its overhaul, according to NZZ am Sonntag.

    Its famous JB007 licence plate aside, the Aston Martin boasts machine guns hidden behind retractable headlights, a smoke screen and a bullet-proof shield.
    But one notable absence is a gadget Straumann chose to eliminate during the makeover: the ejector seat.

    Lets pool our money together and buy it!!!

    No ejector seat, not worth it

    Sure puts the recently-auctioned Batmobile to shame.
