Aston Martin is re-creating the legendary DB5, as driven by James Bond in the movie Goldfinger.
A collectible for true 007 fans, the 25 limited-edition vehicles will each be priced at 2.75 million UK pounds ($3.5 million), plus taxes, and will feature enough working gadgets to make Q proud, the company said in a statement.
The espionage modifications will be co-developed by Academy Award-winner Chris Corbould, special effects supervisor on eight previous Bond films. So far, rotating number plates have been announced, with more to come. It's safe to predict that a working ejector seat is not on the blueprints.
Based on the 1964 model used in Goldfinger and driven onscreen by actor Sean Connery, the cars are a collaboration between the marque and EON Productions, the company behind the Bond film franchise, and will be built at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, England. As "continuation editions," they will be manufactured and numbered as if new off the line in the '60s. The DB4 GT of the same era was re-created most recently in the same way.
