You, too, can own a James Bond spy car

Pop-up machine guns? Check. Rocket launchers? Check. Girl? Uh...

Exclusive Motor Cars

I have no delusions of being a superspy like James Bond. Sure, I have the swagger and the charm, and I look dashing in a tuxedo, but right now I don't have a car, let alone a car with machine guns and grill-mounted missiles to destroy my own personal villains.

But that's not to say I couldn't get one. And I don't need any snotty Q character to hand me the keys, so long as I can come up with $125,900. Sure, the weapons are fake, but that's OK; I don't have Bond's training, so I'd likely end up exploding the back out of my garage. Or shooting myself in the arm while changing the oil.

It looks like an Aston Martin, similar to the one Bond drove in "Die Another Day," but it's in fact based on a Ford Mustang. It sports a V8 on an extra wide wheelbase. This is good news: after spending more on a car than I would on a condo, I'd want to be able to fix it with cheap off-the-shelf parts.

The supercar is made by Exclusive Motor Cars out of England under partnership with Mark Stuzka, a businessman who clearly has ideas for underserved, macho markets. Only 200 will be produced, and the first 40 have already been spoken for. I have to wonder, though, what the insurance on this thing would run me. After all, the queen isn't picking up my tab.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
