Watch Jay Leno Go James Bond In Aston Martin DB5 Gadget Car

To be clear, this is not a replica, a kit car, or a restoration. It’s even better than that. Aston Martin is building 25 brand-new DB5 Continuation cars based on the car’s original specification using the technology and suppliers from 55 years ago. “You’re driving a brand new 55-year-old car. Even when you get a restored one, it’s not the same,” Leno explained. The DB5’s 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine is rebuilt based on the original specification, but the engineers used a modern CT scanner on the original engine to create a higher quality version, eliminating any imperfections.Since this is a recreation of the Goldfinger movie car, the DB5 Continuation has a few optional extras installed. And by that, we don’t mean heated seats or a larger touch screen.
