It is undeniable that the DB5, designed by Carrozzeria Touring, was elevated to design icon status largely due to its pivotal role in several James Bond films, starting with “Goldfinger” in 1964. The DB5’s association with James Bond did double Aston Martin’s sales overnight, and has remained an important selling point to this very day. Regardless of any extra attention the affiliation with 007 and the films may have generated for the Aston Martin, it is also irrefutable that the DB5 was, and continues to be, recognized as a splendid, masterful piece of automotive design. While the car was conceived well before “Goldfinger”’s producers ever thought to put it in the film, it is fascinating that the final design turned out to be every bit as unique and enigmatic as 007 himself - a highly-sophisticated and polished gentleman, who conceals his efficiently brutal abilities under his skin.
