James Bond Ford Mustang & Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Two Car Diorama Set - By Johnny Lightning
Introducing the James Bond Ford Mustang & Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Two Car Diorama Set - By Johnny Lightning. Coming straight from the streets of Las Vegas is the Diamonds Are Forever 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, while the Die Another Day 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish in Tungsten Silver, hails from the film's ice fields. Display in or out of their colourful tin diorama presentation stands.
Backstory. In Diamonds Are Forever, Bond uses the Mach 1 to elude the police after escaping from Blofeld's secret weapons research lab. He memorably tips Tiffany Case's car onto two wheels to drive through a narrow alley and escape. In Die Another Day, Bond's V12 Vanquish is equipped with M refinements including a cloaking device, which allows it to become invisible at the push of a button. The car is heavily featured in the Iceland scenes where it has an epic chase with Zao's Jaguar XKR before being used to save Jinx in the collapsing ice palace.
Details. These1:64 scale models are made with authentic details using references from the Bond Archive. With a high quality die-cast metal chassis and body, and opening bonnet, each car has real rubber tyres and superb durability. Each car sits within its own diorama case, made of painted metal with an official 007 logo plaque. Ages 6+.
Collector's special edition. The makers run a special collectors edition version of all their 1:64 scale models, with a small percentage of the cars made in a different variation and mixed randomly into the run. These are highly collectible and sought after... until you open your box, you don't know if you will be lucky. The White Lightening edition pictured here with white tyres is an example, so look out for it!
The makers. Johnny Lightning cars have entertained collectors with their speed, detail and quality since 1969. The company specialises in muscle cars with models that are durable enough for kids to play with, yet a high level of realistic detail for adult collectors.
