Aston Martin is re-making James Bond’s DB5

Aston Martin is creating a limited edition version of the definitive James Bond car, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5. In collaboration with James Bondfilm producer EON Productions, the automaker will build 25 “Goldfinger DB5s,” with a straight-six, 282 horsepower, 3,995cc motor that will allow a top speed of 145 mph and 0 to 60 time of 7.1 seconds. It will even sport the famous revolving license plate and other gadgets, built by Oscar-winning James Bond effects supervisor Chris Corbould.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer noted that collectors, and most 12-year-old boys, would no doubt be interested in the one-off vehicle.

“To own a Silver Birch DB5, complete with gadgets and built to the highest standards in the very same factory as the original James Bond cars … is surely the ultimate collectors’ fantasy,” he said.
