Bond DB5 | Cars
The most famous car in the World!
The Aston Martin DB5, is the brand’s most famous car but, in reality, it surely has to be the most famous car ever. Even someone who knows incredibly little about cars knows exactly what this is, almost entirely thanks to the bloke who’s usually in a sharp suit and into a spot of international espionage.
So, it’s a dream come true for me and for you, who grew up watching Bond movies all his life to get anywhere near a DB5 in Silver Birch, let alone get the keys to one. This car is a recreation of the famous Aston, built on a modern chassis so that it not only looks unbelievably beautiful, but handles incredibly too.
The Aston Martin DB5 is a British grand tourer, produced by Aston Martin and designed by Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, originally produced from 1963 to 1965 and was part of the legendary DB series of cars, during Aston Martin’s many years under David Brown Limited ownership. It was an evolution of the DB4 (obviously), but even Aston Martin admits that the car was ‘virtually identical in appearance to the Series 5’ version of its predecessor. It’s powerful, smooth, classy and it will charm the pants off you, it litterally has a licence to thrill!
No wonder James Bond likes it so much.
