Original gold-plated version of Corgi 270 James Bond's Aston Martin. Never issued. One of only 7 known to exist and discovered in the office of Marcel Van Cleemput, Chief designer for Corgi. A truly remarkable and iconic item from The MBU Collection. This is the 4th example released from this collection.
notes:

An exceptional iconic piece that was never issued.
This model was discovered in component form, in the office of Marcel Van Cleemput. It is an exquisite model finished with a rich gold-plate. A fully-functioning 1973 issue Corgi 270 James Bond Aston Martin. One of only 7 known to exist and we surmise that they were intended for a special promotion, competition, high profile occasion/launch.
An arresting sight, this original gold-plated model is exquisitely finished.

With the impeccable provenance of having been found in the office of Marcel Van Cleemput, Chief designer for Corgi. Given to the MBU Collector as a thank you for his contribution to The Great Book of Corgi, the owner tells us:

“After helping source some toys for the Great Book of Corgi, I was offered some of the desk drawer contents from his office in Northampton. I did meet Marcel just briefly whilst visiting up North but I did not have the foresight to badger him for any other personal Corgi possessions other than the plated C270!”
