EvoSir Sean Connery, 87, has played one of the iconic on-screen roles in the history of Motion Picture, James Bond. Bond played by Connery is the suavest spy of all time who has risked everything for his country and the Queen. Fans have always believed that Connery’s portrayal as the notorious secret agent remains the gold standard for the character, Bond. The 1964 Ian Fleming’s James Bond film Goldfinger is one of the iconic movies of all time and the co-star of the actor Aston Martin BD5 is as iconic as the Bond himself.
The EON productions and Chris Corbould, Oscar Award-winning special effects supervisor for the last eight James Bond Movies are partnering up with Aston Martin’s Works Division to bring back the iconic and the beautiful car DB5 for a limited run of 25 cars.
If you’re into the gadgets that Bond uses in the film with the help of Q, then the addition of EON and Corbould will make sure that these 25 limited Goldfinger models will sport some spy-gadgetry which includes the remarkable revolving license plate.
The New DB5 which is expected in 2020 will sport 3995cc motor, 282 horsepower and a top speed of 148 miles at maximum speed. And if you are into quick vacations, then the car can shift from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds. For one of the Silver Birch beauty, the price is $ 3.5 million- but hey, you only live twice.
DB5 is James Bond’s top car in the movie; he led a 4.5-liter “Blower Bentley” with a supercharger compressor Amherst Villiers in 1930 in Ian Fleming’s novels – Aston Martin DB5 was introduced to Goldfinger in 1964 with Sean Connery. The Bond fans were delighted to see Daniel Craig behind the DB5 in three of Bond’s four films: Casino Royale, Skyfall, and Specter.
