007’s Iconic Goldfinger Car Aston Martin DB5 To Hit the Streets Once Again!
The actor who won us all over with his portrayal of James Bond in the first-ever James Bond movie, the legendary Sean Connery, passed away only recently at age 90. In many roles, the actor was witnessed with remarkable gadget-laden cars, whether it be the Ford Mustang Mach 1 in Diamonds Are Forever or the Bentley Mark IV in From Russia with Love. However, despite the impressiveness of these cars, Connery is forever remembered in association with the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger.
Which brings us to the phenomenal news we have for Bond fans!
Aston Martin Resumes DB5 Production!
For James Bond fans, at least for those ready to spend $3.5 million, the desire to get their hands on their very own model of the iconic 007 Aston Martin DB5 is a dream that is soon about to come true. Earlier this year, we learned that the company resumed production of the DB4 GT’s, following which Aston Martin has decided to produce limited units of the DB5 for the actual superfans of the world-famous MI6 agent.
A Peek Inside the Iconic Car!
These newly produced vehicles will hold the exact same specifications as the beloved car of the Bond movie. Yes, the new replicas will feature the full suite of lethal gadgets we witnessed 007 using in the movies to manage those near-death escapes.
The memory of the car still remains fresh, imprinted in our minds, much like the Batmobile. It came equipped with a bulletproof screen that rose behind the rear window, rotating license plates, a smokescreen system, and the power to gush out a film of oil in the path of pursuers. Additionally, conveniently hidden behind its front turn signals, it boasted .303 machine guns and an offset sunroof for its passenger ejector seat.
The car is being developed with the help of Oscar-winning special-effects supervisor, Chris Corbould, who has worked on Bond films since the 1980s. Even mechanically, the car is planned to be completely identical to the original DB5, set to produce around 280 horsepower, with a 4.0-liter inline-six, assisted by triple SU carburetors. With a 148-mph top speed, the DB5 was renowned to be one of the fastest cars in the world when new.
