What’s new about Aston Martin and James Bond?
The iconic Aston Martin DB5 will be back, thanks to a unique collaboration between Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films. The Goldfinger DB5 continuation will be based on James Bond’s legendary car from 1964 and built by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell, the original home of the DB5. They will be authentic reproductions of the DB5 seen on screen, with some sympathetic modifications to ensure the highest levels of build quality and reliability.
The cars will include functioning gadgets such as revolving number plates and more, which were made famous in Goldfinger. All the Goldfinger edition cars will be produced to one specification, silver birch paint, just like the original. The most instantly recognizable car of all-time, the DB5 made its first appearance in the third James Bond movie, Goldfinger, alongside Sean Connery as James Bond.
The DB5 has featured in a further six James Bond movies becoming with James Bond two icons of popular culture and one of the most successful and enduring movie partnerships of all-time. Thanks to the remarkable Goldfinger DB5 continuation project, some fortunate 25 persons can now own a faithful and authentic tribute to that original car. Each Goldfinger DB5 continuation car will be priced at £2.75m plus taxes. First deliveries to customers will commence in 2020.
