The wags over at Classic Driver have pulled an enviable winter stunt, driving a nearly priceless 1968 Aston Martin DBS V8FI prototype in the snow, just for the hell of it.

In place of the stock 4.0-litre six cylinder powerplant, the factory fitted this example with a 5.0-litre V8, making it one of the first road-going Astons ever to be fitted with an eight-cylinder engine.

The model was of course made famous as James Bond’s wheels is 1969′s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

And you might want to earn double-O certification before trying this stunt at home…
