Released in 1963, the Aston Martin DB5 was the final evolution in the long running DB series of Aston Martins that honored David Brown (the head of Aston Martin from 1947 to 1972) with their name. While the DB5 was certainly not the first in the series, it is the most recognized thanks to its role as James Bond’s car in the 1964 Goldfinger movie. In total, approximately 1,058 DB5 examples would be produced, which included both Coupe and Convertible models, and varying engine configurations. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Coupe was in large part quite similar to the DB4 Vantage that came before it, yet it would have an upgraded 4.0L engine, a robust five-speed transmission, and three SU carburetors to achieve approximately 282hp and a top speed of 145mph. Other upgrades included the fitting of an alternator, tinted glass, four exhaust silencers, and electric windows. While all of these additions would add weight to the DB5, it is still the favored model over the DB4 in the eyes of many collectors.
