The Aston Martin DB5 is a British luxury grand tourer (GT) that was made by Aston Martin and designed by the Italian coachbuilder Carozzeria Touring Superleggera. Released in 1963, it was an evolution of the final series of DB4.
Although not the first in the DB series, the DB5 is among the best-known cars in the world thanks to special effects expert John Stears, who modified the DB5 for use by James Bond in the film Goldfinger (1964). To promote the film, the DB5 was showcased at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, and it was dubbed “the most famous car in the world”.
Since the film, the DB5 has become closely associated with the James Bond franchise and is considered to be the quintessential vehicle of the character. As such, it has reappeared in subsequent films over the years. Within the universe of James Bond, the same car (registration BMT 216A) was used again in the following film, Thunderball, a year later.
