The practical evolution of the Aston Martin DB4, the 1963 Aston Martin DB5 Coupe and Convertible models would mark the start of a new era for the British sports car manufacturer. Though the 1963 Aston Martin DB5 models would retain the basic chassis, body style and running gear of the late-model DB4 Vantage edition, it would feature several important upgrades. First, and most importantly, the engine was enlarged to 4.0L by increasing the bore to 96mm. It would share the DB4 Vantage’s three SU carburetors and fared in headlamps, but would introduce a full synchromesh five-speed gearbox. Of the 1,058 DB5 models produced from 1963 to 1965, it is estimated that approximately 898 were Coupe models. Interestingly, although production numbers were low and the car would be offered for just a few years, the DB5 would be one of the most famous and well-loved Aston Martins of all times. This was due in large part to its role as James Bond’s car in Goldfinger.
