OPENING DOORS AND BONNET
The doors, bonnet and boot can all be opened. The bonnet is even held
in place with bonnet stays so you can inspect the replica 4-litre engine.
The model has a detailed interior. The engine has been carefully based on the real thing, complete with six cylinders and overhead camshaft.
IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT
The dashboard is a scale replica of the real thing: the steering wheel actually turns the wheels and the entire dashboard lights up at the press of a button. The horn works too.
FRONT MACHINE GUNS
On the real car a pair of machine guns are
located at the front of the car. On your model
these slide out from the indicator lights.

DROPPING LIGHT ASSEMBLY
The light assemblies at the rear of the car can be
dropped. In the movie this was so they could
release tyre stingers that incapacitated a pursuer.
No details have been overlooked, and even the model’s
radio aerial can be pulled out to its full height.
In Goldfinger rear tyre scythes burst Tilly Masterson’s
Mustang wheels. On your model, the slashers can be
extended out and pushed back in.
FRONT AND REAR OVERRIDERS
The overriders on the front of the model can be
pulled out to become rams to shift any unwanted
objects out of the way!
ROTATING NUMBER PLATES
The car is fitted with rotating back and front
number plates that show three different
registrations – British, French and Swiss.
