Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films, have announced a limited run of twenty-five Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars, complete with working Bond gadgets.
The Goldfinger DB5 continuation will be based on Connery’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, all produced in Silver Birch paint, like the original. This authenticity will extend to include functioning gadgets such as revolving number plates and more, unfortunately, Q Branch weaponry won’t make the cut.
Since its seminal appearance in Goldfinger, the DB5 has featured in a further six James Bond movies: Thunderball (1965), again with Connery; GoldenEye (1995) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) with Pierce Brosnan and three appearances alongside Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). James Bond and his DB5 have become two icons of popular culture and one of the most successful and enduring movie partnerships of all-time.
Twenty-five cars will be available to customers, with a further three cars built for EON and Aston Martin, plus another to be auctioned for charity. Each Goldfinger DB5 continuation car will be priced at £2.75m plus taxes.
First deliveries to customers will commence in 2020.
