The cars seen in Goldfinger had a vast array of gadgetry from Q Branch, some of which simply aren’t practical, or possible, to include in cars destined for the public. However, it does look as if some rather nifty gadgets will make their way into the continuation cars...

Subject to final engineering approval, each car will feature rear smoke screen and simulated oil slick delivery systems, front and rear triple revolving number plates, simulated twin front machine guns, a bulletproof rear shield and battering rams. A simulated radar screen, gear knob actuator button, under-seat hidden weapons/storage tray and an optional ejector seat teaser, to name a few, will also feature inside.

Luxury car maker Aston Martin falls to first-quarter loss

Luxury car maker Aston Martin falls to first-quarter loss The maker of cars favoured by spy James Bond reported a £17.3 million pre-tax loss for the three months to March 2019.

James Bond fans know the DB 5 was featured in six additional movies of the blockbuster franchise after appearing in Goldfinger (1964), starring in Thunderball Production of the Goldfinger DB 5 continuations series will be strictly limited to 25 examples, each priced at £2.75 million before taxes.

We obviously don't have that luxury on these DB5s as all the gadgets have to work in the same car all the time.’

We’ve been expecting you… James Bond-inspired Aston Martin DB5 continuation nears production © Provided by Evo Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger continuation Though it’s easy to get distracted by the James Bond side of things, the creation of 28 new-build DB5s alone is a rather impressive feat – each will roll off the same Newport Pagnell production line that all 898 DB5s did 55 years previously.

Whether a similar programme will be created for the Bond DB5 has not yet been revealed, but we hope they will be enjoyed as toys should be, rather than joining collections and kept in ‘new in box’ condition.

Each of the DB5 continuations will be finished in the same Silver Birch, black leather specification as seen in Goldfinger, and will set you back £2.75m plus taxes. The first engineering car is already taking shape, but customers will have to wait until 2020 before they can get their hands on one.
