The Aston Martin DB5 was a spectacular model built between the years 1963 and 1965, and was produced in only 1,023 units.

It is one of the most famous cars in the world, and that’s because of the Oscar-winning special effects expert John Stears, who created the deadly silver-birch DB5 used by James Bond in Goldfinger.

The DB series was named honouring the head of Aston Martin from 1947–1972, David Brown, and is of course the most recognised cinematic James Bond car.

It’s powered by a 3,995 cc Inline-6 engine, and producing 282 bhp, and the Bond-car can accelerate from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in just 8 seconds, and reach a top seped of 143 mph (230 km/h).
