Tag Archives: Aston Martin DB5

A very impressive 1:8 scale die-cast model of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5, complete with essential details including working lights, pop-out machine guns, flipping license plates, ejector seat, bulletproof rear shield and more.

The catch? It comes in 86 parts as part of a 22-month magazine build-up series from Eaglemoss.

And not for the first time, either.

First two issues (plus parts): €1.75. Issues 3-86: €9.75. Total cost: €822.50 (+P&P).

Alternatively, you could have five and a half LEGO DB5s with no wait, or (for €2.33 million) the real thing.

Behold: the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Coupe, successor to the DB4 and, famously, James Bond’s grand tourer of choice. 4.0l straight six, magnesium alloy coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera.

This is DB5 No.5 – the fifth ever built. With early 4 speed manual transmission and left hand drive, it was sold new in San Francisco and remains intact and in original condition after 55 years.

Coming under the hammer this summer.
