Ejector seats, machine guns and a muffled scream from the boot. TG goes for a spin in 007’s original car, which is now up for sale

And then you think, Sean Connery drove this car in Goldfinger. It's the car he stopped in the forest, after being pursued by a horde of minions in Mercs, when his beautiful doomed companion was offed by Oddjob's deadly bowler hat. It has a prototype satnav (home counties on the display, naturally), a lever in the driver's footwell that raises the rear brake-light, an armrest full of buttons for all of Q's various devices, and a little red button secreted under the top of the gear-lever for the ejector seat.
Yes, it's that car. And I've just driven it.
