The new DB5, which is expected to be delivered to customers in 2020, will feature a straight-six, 3,995cc motor capable 282 hp and a top speed of 148 mph. And should you need to make a speedy getaway, it can go from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds. The price for owning one of these Silver Birch beauties is $3.5 million—but, hey, you only live twice.
Long considered the pinnacle of James Bond cars on film—he drove a 1930, 4.5-liter “Blower Bentley” with an Amherst Villiers supercharger in Ian Fleming’s novels—the Aston Martin DB5 was introduced in 1964’s Goldfinger starring Sean Connery. And though Bond crashed the ejector seat-equipped Aston Martin trying to escape Oddjob, it returned in the next Connery movie, Thunderball, and appeared in two Pierce Brosnan films, GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies. Bond aficionados were also thrilled to see Daniel Craig behind the wheel of the DB5 in three of his four Bond movies: Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre.
