LONDON: A limited 25-car production run is underway for the Aston Martin DB5, 55 years after the last new DB5 rolled off the production line.

Fewer than 900 saloon examples were built by the brand between 1963 and 1965, with by far the most famous of the original owners being the world’s best-known secret agent – James Bond – who first drove the car that is today inextricably linked with him in the 1964 film, Goldfinger.

Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars is a further extension of the British marque’s successful Continuation car programme which began in 2017 with the DB4 GT Continuation.

Each DB5 Goldfinger Continuation car is priced at 2.75 million pounds, plus taxes.

Each of the 25 new cars is being built using a blend of Sir David Brown-era old world craftsmanship, alongside the integration of cutting-edge gadgets developed in association with Chris Corbould OBE, the special effects supervisor who has worked on more than a dozen Bond films.

All the new cars in Silver Birch paint – just like the original – are meticulously detailed authentic reproductions of the DB5 seen on screen.

The list of Bond-inspired gadgets includes the following features, all familiar to viewers of the classic 1964 big screen hit.

Exterior:

>Rear smoke screen delivery system

>Rear simulated oil slick delivery system

>Revolving number plates front and rear (triple plates)

>Simulated twin front machine guns

>Bullet resistant rear shield

>Battering rams front and rear

>Simulated tyre slasher

>Removable passenger seat roof panel (optional equipment)

Interior:

>Simulated radar screen tracker map

>Telephone in driver’s door

>Gear knob actuator button

>Armrest and centre console-mounted switchgear

>Under-seat hidden weapons/storage tray

>Remote control for gadget activation
