The amount ponied up for this movie car would leave anyone shaken and stirred.

A silver 1965 Aston Martin DB5 used to promote the James Bond thriller “Thunderball” recently fetched an eye-popping $6.4 million at auction.

The sleek ride, which is allowed to hit the road, comes with actual working nail spreaders, wheel hub-mounted tire slashers and smoke screen, reported CarBuzz.

Other gadgets include an oil-slick maker and a bulletproof screen that rises behind the back window to keep your inner James Bond safe while driving to the supermarket. There’s even a passenger-seat ejection system.

Even cooler, there are rotating license plates — British, French and Swiss — on both the front and back of the vehicle that are controlled by a knob.

Situated behind the front turn signals on each fender are .30-caliber machine guns. Although they don’t fire bullets, they do make a shooting sound realistic enough to scare your fellow motorists in the carpool lane.

The $6.4 million sale is the largest ever for a Bond movie car. The previous record for an actual movie-used Bond Aston Martin DB5 was in 2010 for $4.6 million. That car was utilized for driving shots in “Goldfinger,” according to CNN.

The identity of the mystery buyer has not been revealed.

“Thunderball” was the fourth film in the Bond series, behind “Dr. No,” “From Russia with Love” and “Goldfinger.”

In 2015's “Spectre,” the 24th installment of the spy series, Daniel Craig’s Bond drove a DB5, and it has been announced that the 2020 film will feature one as well.
