Here’s What 5 Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation Cars Look Like Together
It's hard to improve an original movie. In the spirit of the 1964 espionage thriller that cemented the Aston Martin brand in the minds of mainstream moviegoers around the world, the British carmaker produced an ambitious shoot in which five DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars are assembled into an unrepeatable photo opportunity.
To celebrate the successful launch of the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation series, Aston Martin put together five examples - of the 25 scheduled for production - before heading to its owners in the US, Europe and the Middle East in the coming weeks. Some of the extremely limited editions have already been shipped to buyers worldwide. The fact that 25 will be built is significant as each car represents one of the 25 James Bond films made to date, culminating with the upcoming release of No Time to Die in 2021.

The Aston Martin DB5, of which 886 coupes were built from 1963 to 1965 (along with 123 drophead coupes and 12 shooting brakes), is considered to be one of the most collectible - and certainly one of the most beautiful - models ever to hit Newport Pagnell . While its predecessor, the DB4, is even more sought after and rarer in its GT and Zagato versions, it is difficult to upgrade a DB5 in Silver Birch with a black interior when it comes to performance combined with sheer elegance and panache .
That was the spec of the car that Agent 007 drove in the films, although it had some hidden features that enhanced its effectiveness as the perfect vehicle for an undercover agent. Spy gadgets included a bulletproof shield that lifts off the trunk lid, rotating license plates, elongated wheel spinners to tear up bad guys' tires, machine guns in the front bumpers, and even a seat to eject unwanted passengers.
Aston Martin's factory began developing its most ambitious serial car to date in 2019, in collaboration with EON Productions. Developed with the help of the film franchise's special effects expert Chris Corbould, OBE, the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation includes many of the devices - without an ejector seat and operating machine guns - that were found in the two original movie cars. We assume each has a radio that plays the theme music on cue, Dame Shirley Basey's “Goldfinger,” one of the most memorable movie songs in history.
