There are toys, and then there are toys. This is the latter. In the words of Aston Martin Works boss Paul Spires, this continuation Goldfinger DB5 is one of “the most desirable toys ever built for 25 very lucky buyers worldwide”.
That’s right folks, the car we told you about in 2018 and again in 2019 is now finally being built, with the first of the run having just been completed after 4,500 hours of ‘meticulous construction’.
“The ‘Job 1’ DB5 represents not only another significant design and engineering success, but also becomes the first new DB5 to be built by Aston Martin in more than half a century,” we’re told. Exciting times indeed.
If you need a recap, Aston’s continuation DB5 is basically a brand-new replica of the DB5 that appeared in Goldfinger, and Aston is going to great lengths – working alongside Bond production company EON – to ensure it has a full suite of gadgets.
Well, £3.3m for a non-road-legal Aston, you’d certainly hope so. Click on for a guided tour and a sneaky glimpse of said gadgets in action…
