Video: Aston Martin rebuilds James Bond’s DB5, with ‘guns’ and gadgets

British sports car maker Aston Martin has wound back the clock to reproduce the DB5 from the classic 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. The first of 25 limited edition vehicles – complete with movie stunt gadgets such as revolving number plates, pretend machine guns, a bulletproof shield, and an oil slick delivery system – was finished last week. Aston Martin has released a video that illustrates the attention to detail and how each gadget works (shown at the bottom of this story).

Aston Martin's new electrified turbo V6 will be its meanest powertrain ever

Aston Martin has announced its new TM01 engine platform, named for Tadek Marek, Aston's famed engineer of the 1950s and 1960s. TM01 takes the form of a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 utilising Aston Martin’s own in-house hybrid technology and, while power figures have not been revealed, the brand says the engine will be “the most powerful in the Aston Martin range”.

Aston Martin unveils limited-edition V12 Speedster

British luxury sports carmaker Aston Martin has debuted its new V12 Speedster at its Gaydon headquarters. Only 88 of the roofless, windshield-less two-seater are set to be built, with pricing starting from £765,000 (AU$1.49 million). It's unclear if one of the 88 will ever make its way to Australia. CarAdvice has reached out to Aston Martin Australia and is awaiting a response.

2020 Aston Martin DBX: $357,000 SUV 'sold out' in Australia

Aston Martin's first-ever SUV is already "sold out" in Australia and New Zealand, as the company pushes head office for more cars to match stronger-than-expected demand. Unveiled in November, the new DBX has only been shown to a small group of current and prospective Aston Martin owners in Australia – and the order books are already full.

Aston Martin announces new V12 Speedster

British carmaker Aston Martin has announced plans to produce a new, limited-edition supercar named the V12 Speedster, releasing a stylised illustration that features neither a roof nor a conventional windshield. Aston Martin claims the two-seater, set to debut later this year, is a nod to the brand's iconic DBR1 and CC100 Speedster centenary concept car (released back in 2013).
