The name’s Bond… James Bond. He is the worlds most famous fictional character and someone who all men can look at and think “damn, I wish I was that cool.” 007 over the years has had many four wheeled companions including a handful of Lotus’, BMW’s, and even a tank. Of late Bonds chosen mode of transportation is the delectable Aston Martin DBS. Aston’s and James Bond go together like strawberries and cream, they just belong. In the up and coming 007 flick, Skyfall, James goes back to arguably his most famous machine. The DB5.
The Aston Martin DB5 was recently in a survey named “the top 10 things that make Britain great.” The machine is a masterpiece and fits Bond like a tailored suit. Its first appearance was in Goldfinger back in 1964 and has since made appearances every so often. In Skyfall it is to be a crucial element of what is being dubbed “Bonds darkest hour.” Speculation also has it that Aston Martin will sneak in their new Vanquish for a short big-screen debut.
