Aston Martin Goldfinger DB5 Continuation: We drive 007’s most famous car – Video

In the language of queue, this will only take one hour or so in the event that you give me your undivided attention.
This is perhaps the most famous mobile car ever.
I remember having fun with my cousin’s Corgi back the day, and I was fascinated not only obviously as it was a model car but due to all the things about it.
Now Aston Martin has generated perhaps the ultimate big boys toy.
This is the Aston Martin DBX five gold finger continuation.
And yes, the entire scale card does have all of the amazing gadgets that so fascinated me first on the toy and then in the films Things such as the twin grinding machine guns, [SOUND] bulletproof panel, the smoke screen
[MUSIC]
and the oil slick even though that’s actually brought [UNKNOWN].

Today I’m likely to spend a few hours driving from Newport Pagnell to stoke Park via a number of other landmarks pertinent for this very special car.
It’s actually territory that I am aware pretty well therefore i shouldn’t be needing this.
Why starting Newport Pagnell?
Well that is where Aston Martin’s continuation cars are manufactured.
First there clearly was the DB for GT.
Then there exists a Gato human body version of this car.
And now this, each Goldfinger DB five takes four and a half thousand dollars to create, and there’ll be 25 going to clients, but needless to say the 3.3 million pounds each, there will in fact be 28 as a whole because you will see one cat by Aston Martin and one kept by Ian Film production company responsible for bond and then you will see one more auction for charity.
All will soon be painted Silver Birch, but none will leave the factory road registered.
How then you definitely might wonder, am I driving that one on the road?
Well, it just took an instant phone call, to the right people.
[SOUND]
Now in the original book of Goldfinger In Fleming wrote in a DB three DB Mark three VAT.
But then when they came to the film, ostensibly chose the latest and greatest Aston Martin that was the DV five.
They approached Aston Martin and they were a little cautious to start with.
It wasn’t an immediate yes.
Then they relented in the switch do is just a smokescreen now is the sole gadget.
But as every one on the film started chipping in with their own ideas, the director suggested the revolving number of late because it apparently been having a bit of trouble with parking tickets recently.
So it just type of spiraled uncontrollable perhaps, but certainly.
Paying for the car that people recognize and love today.
That revolving number of late is needless to say present and correct with this car, filled with French and Swiss registrations just as it had in the film.
Now, back the 60s, there were four.
Goldfinger DB finds.
Two of those were promotional cars after the film that did tours and stuff went around with the film.
But both that he utilized on the film, the first one was VMT 2168.
So the famous number plate that’s with this car.
That was actually it was an extremely late DB for There was then dressed up to be always a DB five.
That’s one that was packed around given all the original gadgets.
And then since the director got a little bit type of jumpy concerning the fact that it absolutely was $45,000 worth of car being thrown across the place by some drivers.
They drafted in yet another car.
That car was FNP seven B and actually wound up standing set for an awful lot of the famous scenes it absolutely was didn’t have the gadgets initially it absolutely was given them at a later date.
But it was useful for a lot of the driving scenes also it was decked out to look Like BMT 268
The gadgets for these continuation cars were manufactured by Oscar Winner Chris Kobold.
The special effects supervisor on eight previous gen bonfils.
The original Goldfinger DB five, however, was engineered by yet another Oscar Winner and legend of the industry, John Stairs.
He would go on to make a rather different form transport in the shape of Luke Skywalker is landspeeder as well as Jedi, lightsabers and RTD.
Two and C three.
He also lived in a residence very near our roots in Buckinghamshire today, but we’re perhaps not going to stop there.
He’s instead we’re making a detour to black Park Woods which doubled for the Swiss Woods were bombed out runs Eric gold fingers henchmen of Kind of Robert.
He does not actually do anyway, he uses some of the gadgets so the smoke screen is employed and the oil which despite the fact it’s clearly on gravel, I’m not sure everything makes that much big difference on gravel.
But anyway that’s there.
Then a corner screen, the bulletproof screen gets used as well.
Eventually, it Dropping to the masses and in actual fact getting killed by odd job and bond getting captured.
So it’s not an extremely successful ad running of these.
But bond does then get to use something else within the next scene, which we’ll head to.
After this.
Today’s words well click here, people doing their own stunts.
Next on the tour of appropriate locations is Pinewood Studios.
There is a Goldfinger Avenue inside the studios, and this is where the scene in which bond uses the ejector seat was filmed.
The original cars did not actually have ejector seats, and neither do the continuation cars.
But there is the all crucial button in the ghetto and a removable roof panel.
Interestingly, the original cars weren’t actually fitted with the Ben Hur style wheel slashes either, but the continuation cars anyway, although we couldn’t access Goldfinger Avenue, Used to do manage to find somewhere just down the road that made me feel like I was near double seven obviously to drive it’s this that is a brand.
New DB five, also it does feel just like a dv five.
There is a small bit more weight in this car because of all of the gadgets however the DB five is it gets the feeling of a fairly hefty car.
Anyway, so I think Something that I really noticed while driving, this original straight back to back.
When it can still have this lovely sensation you are able to keep up with traffic really astonished me, it surprises lots of other people if they see you go past it.
Under the bonnet is a four liter straight six putting out 282 brake horsepower at 5000 rpm and 280 pounds foot at four . 5 thousand rpm.
help speed is 148 miles one hour and not 60 miles an hour or so is 7.1 seconds.
There is just a library or axle with what’s the linkage and braking is by discs all round.
Steering rack and pinion without systems.
Steering is obviously fairly heavy you must wait for it in the corner and I love that feeling of suddenly over bumps even slower speed as you are able to feel the the geometry changing the suspension.
One of the things that you could notice that BMT two and six A in the film, I shouted for speed box.
This is got a five speed box.
I do believe the other guy if that he did have five, three boxes that had his elephant image he broke on the focal part.
So we then had to fly out BMT and type of kind of against what they certainly were trying to achieve.
That was the one that got thrashed around.
[BLANK_AUDIO]
It’s surprisingly great.
I’m sitting just a little hard incidentally because there exists a gun cabinet underneath your seat.
Just needs to have the game shift a little bit of time as the thing I noticed most wish to be positive on the pedal certainly break so not so bad.
One gadget is really good a reason aside from the thing called air conditioning might have [LAUGH]
Slight getting rather hot.
I could have happily driven the DB five all day long after all and try the battering rams yet.
But eventually I reached ab muscles salubrious environments of Stoke Park.
This is where the film goes directly after the DB5 has been introduced in Q’s lair.
It’s also where among the most famous photos of Connery and the DB5 is taken.
The impressive Buckinghamshire location was doubling for the gold fingers golf club and can’t cope with but who played Goldfinger?
Exactly a good golfer, but Sean Connery had to learn to play for the film.
It was a game however continue to play avidly for the rest of his life.
Anyway, Goldfinger famously cheats upon does his own subtle switches lesson just to stymie the baddies scarless actions and win the game.
And from there on follows him to the famous Furka Pass in Switzerland.
For yet another chance to pose leaning contrary to the front wing and God, one day perhaps we’ll head there with a DB5.
But today, this is where our journey ends.
It was FMP that has been actually useful for the Stoke Park scenes.
And unlike BMT which was sadly stolen in 1997, probably never to be viewed again.
FMP 7B does still exist today, somewhere.
And now there are gonna be 25 more of these wonderful silver birch Goldfinger cars.
And I do believe that’s a positive thing because of this day.
So one other thing is that this car puts a smile on people’s faces wherever it goes.
So 25 times more smiles Seems just like a good idea in my experience.
