Aston Martin Begins Building The Ultimate Bond Fan’s Dream Car

The cars will be built with help from the producers of the James Bond films, EON Productions, who will equip these DB5s with all of the gadgets used by Bond in Goldfinger. Some of these gadgets include a rear smoke screen and oil slick delivery system, revolving number plates, (simulated) front machine guns, a (simulated) tire slasher, (optional) removable passenger seat roof panel, a door-mounted telephone, hidden weapons tray, gear knob actuator button, and a (simulated) radar screen.All 25 examples will be painted in Silver Birch, like the original car, and will be powered by a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated inline six-cylinder engine with three SU carburetors. This engine sends 290 horsepower to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission with a limited-slip differential. The Girling-type steel disc brakes are hydraulically-assisted but the rack and pinion steering is completely unassisted.
