Finally heading out of here tomorrow for the coast, then in Monterey on Wednesday for one of the best weeks in the year! Looking forward to 60-80 degree weather and no haboobs with crazy rain showers after words to make floods to take out the electricity!
Aston Martin announces DB5 Goldfinger continuation model.
From the start of 2020 a small number of extremely wealthy car collectors will get to play out their James Bond fantasies thanks to Aston Martin Works’ most unusual continuation project yet. Limited to 25 units - each one costing £2.75m before tax - the DB5 Goldfinger pays homage to 007’s company car.
The recreations will all have functioning gadgets, too, although so far Aston Martin can only confirm revolving number plates - there is no word yet on ejector seats, oil slicks or machine guns.
Appropriately, the cars will be built at Newport Pagnell, the very site where the DB5 was originally manufactured. Whether you think the DB5 Goldfinger is achingly cool or slightly naff it must be said Aston Martin clearly has a keen sense of humour, as well as a very keen sense of how it can squeeze a few million quid out of a handful of its wealthiest clients.
It is a pity, however, that the newly-built cars will not be road legal. Here’s hoping the 25 buyers find some use for their DB5 Goldfingers beyond parking them in climate-controlled garages...
The DB5 has featured in a total of six James Bond films and made its debut appearance in 1964’s Goldfinger. This recreation is the result of a collaboration between Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company behind the Bond films.
As soon as photos of the finished DB5 Goldfinger are available we’ll share them here.
Change The Game.
