Aston Martin, in collaboration with the EON Production and with special effects guru Chris Corbould, has started the new production of James Bond’s DB5, named Job 1. The car is produced in a limited series of only 25 specimens: each model is complete with the devices that were part of the equipment of the secret agent in the service of His Majesty, of course all harmless.
On board the Aston Martin DB25s, which from 2021 will make its official entry into Formula 1, there are the machine guns hidden in the flashers, the rotating plates and the sunroof to “eject” the passenger seat.
The cars are entirely handmade: to make each specimen, in the Aston Martin Heritage department, it takes approximately 4,500 hours of work. A very complex construction job that led the British brand to decide to put them on sale for the price of 2.75 million pounds that goes up to 3.32 million including taxes.
The 25 replicas of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 are all rigorously painted in Silver Birch silver, the livery of the legendary car that appeared in the 007 films’ Goldfinger ‘and’ Thunderball ‘with Sean Connery,’ Goldeneye ‘,’ Tomorrow never dies ‘and’ The world is not enough ‘with Pierce Brosnan and’ Casino Royale ‘,’ Skyfall ‘and’ Specter ‘with the secret agent played by Daniel Craig. The Aston Martin DB5 will appear again in the 007 film ‘No Time to die’, with chase scenes already shot in Italy, in Matera.
In addition to the historic DB5, in the next secret agent’s film 007 which should debut on the big screen in the fall, Daniel Craig He will also drive a brand new Aston Martin Valhalla, an almost definitive version of the AM-RB 003 that made a fine show during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
It should be borne in mind that the replicas of the Aston Martin DB5 are not approved for road use: for this reason, most likely most 25 specimens products, all already sold, will end up in museums or in private collections. The first lucky buyers will receive the cars at the end of 2020: it is still not certain if the delivery will take place in the Q Branch, the imaginary research and development department of the British secret services.
