Ten months ago, Aston Martin announced that it would build a limited number of 1964 Aston Martin DB5s, just as one Sean Connery, like James Bond, first ran into the movie Goldfinger. Twenty-five of these cars will be sold at a cost of £ 2.75 million, or around $ 3.5 million. Each car will contain a number of dangerous audio options, just like the one in the movie, Aston Martin said.
Aston Martin has finally announced what some of these gadgets will be. The cars will, among other things, have rotating license plates that can display three different brands and copier guns that go beyond the swing signals.
Other smart features will include a "smoke screen" device to hide the car from pursuers and a copied disc to release an imaginary oil spill behind the car. If all this is not enough, the car will have extendable front and rear battery bearings. There are currently no plans to include an ejector seat, something the car had in the movie, but "it can be a surprise or two when using the ejector button," said Aston Martin representatives in an email.
The cars are being built in the Aston Martin Works facility in Newport Pagnell in Buckinghamshire, England, the same factory where DB5s were originally made. It is now mostly dedicated to restoring classic Aston Martins. The main production plant is now in Warwickshire, England.
These will be "continuation cars", which means that, although they are newly built, they will be just like the 1964 DB5s in almost all respects except the fancy gadgets, they will all be made in the same color, Silver Birch, which is of course the color of the movie car. seem high, but it is a relative bargain compared to one of the actual cars used in the movie, some paid $ 4.6 million in 2010 for one of them, the only other complete car used in the James Bond movies was stolen in 1997, o Its whereabouts are now unknown, according to Hagerty Insurance, a collectibles insurer.
