James Bond’s Iconic DB5 To Be Revived By Aston Martin


One of the all-time great movie cars is about to make a comeback. According to Digital Trends, Aston Martin is reviving a piece of cinematic history. The automaker will build 25 new DB5s identical to the one in 1964’s "Goldfinger." The DB5 first forged a connection between Bond and Aston in the public consciousness. It also appeared in "Thunderball," "GoldenEye," "Casino Royale," "Skyfall" and "Spectre." Aston is working with Eon Productions, the company that produces the Bond films. Each new DB5 will be an exact copy of the original movie cars, right down to gadgets. These include the car's trademark revolving license plate. However, unlike a genuine 1960s DB5, the new cars won’t be road legal. The DB5 will be priced at 2.75 million pounds (about $3 million) each. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2020.
