    You may have heard of Getaround, the car sharing service that won first place at a recent TechCrunch Disrupt event.

    You may have even used it - car sharing companies are hot these days, with people trying to save money on gas, and help the planet.

    Now, Getaround is throwing a contest that just might get you a front row seat to see James Bond in action.

    Sort of.

    If you go to the company's website, you'll find a driving game (think of it as their version of the Google Doodle).

    If you have one of the 50 fastest times in the game, you get entered in a drawing. If your name is drawn, you win an Aston Martin for a day (I doubt this is part of the typial Getaround package...), along with a tailored suit, and dinner and hotel stay.

    The leader board is filling up quickly. 

    And, I must say, the Aston Martin looks pretty choice.
