The Complete History of James Bond's Aston Martins

Thunderball - DB5

Year: 1965
Type: Movie Car

The newly reinforced DB5 from Goldfinger made its reappearance during the opening credits of Thunderball. After production wrapped all the gadgetry was stripped and it was sold to a collector who fitted it with yet another set of replica gadgets. It went through a few changes in ownership before being stolen and dropping off the map in 1997. Aston Martin made two additional replicas of the gadget-laden DB5 for use as press cars after the first two Bond films were so successful. One is now in the hands of a collector, while the other is on display at the Louwman Dutch National Motor Museum in the Hague.
