Aston Martin DB5 production restarts

Post by falkor » Sun Jun 14, 2020 5:59 pm

Aston Martin has started building its iconic DB5 again, 55 years after the last one left the factory.

But the new cars aren’t any ordinary DB5 (as if such a thing exists), they are Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars - a run of 25 “continuation” cars inspired by the 1964 James Bond film that made the model so famous.

The new cars are being built at Aston’s Heritage Division headquarters in Newport Pagnell, using authentic DB5 chassis and body panels combined with modern engineering and a suite of working gadgets developed with Bond special effects guru Chris Corbould.
