First New DB5 Rolls Off The Line
Aston Martin Goldfinger Continuation car completed
The first customer car in the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation programme has left the production line. The ‘Job 1’ DB5 becomes the first new DB5 to be built by Aston Martin in more than half a century and is the first in a strictly limited run of 25 customer cars. The new cars include an array of functioning devices created by Bond film special effects supervisor Chris Corbould OBE.
Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “The DB5 is, without question, the most famous car in the world by virtue of its 50-plus year association with James Bond. To see, the first customer car finished, and realise that this is the first new DB5 we have built in more than half a century, really is quite a moment.
“It is a genuine privilege, and significant responsibility, to have been involved in the shaping of this new DB5 and to be helping to lead the creation of new versions of this automotive icon. I’m absolutely certain that the 25 lucky owners who are beginning to take delivery of these cars will be thrilled with them.”
First deliveries of the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation car to customers will commence in the second half of 2020.
