Aston Martin DP5 is one of the most popular cars in cinema for adventures with James Bond in the 007 movie series. It first appeared in the 1964 film Goldfinger, and is set to return in “No Time to Die”, the twenty-fifth spy film to be released in 2021.
A model made from 1963 to 1965, the Aston Martin DP5 Goldfinger Continuum was important enough to return to production with just 25 units. This is not a simple nostalgia because the same technologies and gadgets found in all cars are found in James Bond’s DP5.
He knows how to shoot
Announced a few years ago, the British Gran Turismo special series saw the light of day with the first 5 units, in a special video, finally showing all the news they were fitted with.
It really has it all: from pseudo-front machine guns hidden under front-turn signals to rear bulletproof retractable armor, you can burn oil through translucent plates, sharp hubcaps, self-propelled bumpers and pipes hidden in the rear lights. Inside is a dummy radar monitor with all the levers and controls to operate various devices under the armrest.
There is also a red button located under the gearshift, which activates the passenger exit seat on the James Bond DP5. But no, in copies it is kept for beauty only.
The first 5 Aston Martin DP5 Goldfinger series will be offered to enthusiasts in Europe, the US and the Middle East, as usual – no chance to customize the car. For example, the body is exclusively metallic silver, while the interiors can only be ordered in gray.
