This brand has been more prominent in the fleet of Her Majesty’s Secret Service; it is noteworthy that six models of the Aston Martin brand have been exhibited in about twelve of the twenty-four Bond movies till present. For instance, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 made its debut in GoldFinger, the Academy Award-winning movie. The classic vehicle which has the reputation as the most fantastic car in the franchise has impressive features such as an aluminum 282 hp, 4-litre, straight 6-engine as well as a 5-speed transmission. It can move at a fast pace from zero to sixty mph within eight seconds thereby reaching a premium speed of 145mph.

The vehicle has incredible features such as a revolving license plate, machine guns, oil-slick, smoke-screen apparatuses, passenger-side ejector seat, and bulletproof windshield. It is also important to note that these remarkable attributes are not part of the regular package.

In a bid to mark the beginning of a robust 50-year relationship between Aston Martin and the Eon Productions and Bond, two 1965 DB5s would be utilized during the filming process. However, the vehicle would feature in most of Bond’s movies namely: Thunderball, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall, and The World Is Not Enough.
