The New $3.5M Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 Will Have Machine Guns And Smoke Screen. Q is on it as we speak. Aston Martin is currently in production and development of 25 recreations of the iconic DB5 featured in the James Bond film, “Goldfinger,” with gadgets included.
The automaker has announced a behind the scenes look at some of the technology it is working on to recreate the movie experience in each brand new car.
The silver New $3.5M Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 will be equipped with functional smoke screen generators, simulated oil slick spreaders that spray water and recoiling machine gun barrels that emerge from the front corner lights and feature illuminated flashing tips.
More features include rotating license plates, extendable battering rams, and a bulletproof shield for the rear window along with a 1960s appropriate radar screen, door-mounted telephone and an ejector seat button hidden in the gearshift lever, but not the actual seat … as far as we know that has been made public.
The hand built cars are being sold for roughly $3.5 million each. That’s a lot of money for a replica, but also something of a discount compared to the only known existing car from the film, which was auctioned for $4.6 million in 2010 and is definitely worth much more today. A second DB5 used for production, the one equipped with the special effects, was stolen from a hangar at the Boca Raton airport in 1997 and its whereabouts are unknown.
In a survey conducted by Hyundai in 2018, Brits named the Aston Martin DB5 their favorite movie car of all time. However, unlike the authentic one, the replicas aren’t street legal, so you’ll have to call M for a favor at the DMV if you want to hit the road when deliveries begin in 2020.Auto News, Blog
