Aston Martin DB5 Saloon
Right-Hand Drive Manufactured with Correct Matching Numbers
The Aston Martin DB5 is regarded by most Aston Martin experts “as their most beautiful model ever built”.
This car replaced the DB4 series in 1963 with substantial changes, notably under the bonnet. The 6-cylinder engine’s capacity was enlarged to 4 litres, propelling the motorcar to 145 mph (233 km/h). Significant too, was the introduction of a fully synchromeshed manual gearbox with electric overdrive & latterly the ZF unit boasted 5 forward gears together with 15” Chromium Wire Wheels and Girling disc brakes. Standard equipment on the DB5 included reclining seats, wool pile carpets, electric windows, twin fuel tanks, oil cooler, and magnesium-alloy body built to the Superleggera patent technique and complemented with full hide interior.
The DB5 is famous all over the world for being the first and most recognised cinematic James Bond car! The Aston Martin has been featured in several of the James Bond films notably Goldfinger, Thunderball, Golden Eye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall and the last Bond adventure, Spectre.
We understand that the current James Bond film in the making which is celebrating the 25th production will also feature the famous DB5 Saloon “BMT 215A” as its main character!
