James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger is surely one of the most beloved movie cars of all time. As a matter of fact, its impact was so profound that the revered engineers at Aston ultimately put forth a recreation of it in 2020 that was equipped with film-accurate gadgets galore and the same polish of the original. Though that model was as exclusive as they come, only available to a select few of the most elite members of society, one of these rare recreations is now being offered to the public via auction.
Upon its release, the 2020 DB5 Continuation was the first of its kind to be crafted in over fifty years — and the only version with movie-like gadgets. With a mere total of 25 models around the globe, it is one of the more limited cars around, especially when it comes to cars one could try and snag via auction. These particular models were crafted alongside EON Productions, the same British production company that has been producing Bond films since the series of adaptations kicked off with Dr. No, which goes to show they know exactly what they needed to implement for the sake of sheer authenticity. Featuring a trio of revolving license plates, a smokescreen delivery system, and pair of simulated twin machine guns, and more, this spy-mobile does far more than just look the part. Even the interior of the OG Bond car remains as intact as ever, offering a telephone in the driver’s door and a simulated radar screen tracker’s map.
A dream car for many, there are simply too many qualities to appreciate here. Accounting for the car’s flawless look and exclusive nature, rest assured that it will end up selling upwards of its MSRP of nearly $4.5 million. With that being said, feel free to take a chance on it starting November 25th through Silverstone Auctions.
