We’ve already reported that the legendary Aston Martin DB5 James Bond car that starred in both Goldfinger (1964) and Thunderball (1965) had been sold at an RM Auctions event for an impressive $4,608,500. The car went to an American bidder who planned on displaying it at his private collection in Ohio. Now Aston Martin has decided to delight us with a few images that show the DB5 next to the new 2011 DB9 . Old versus new, what can be better than that?
The Aston Martin DB5 is already known as the most famous car in the world, while the DB9 is regarded by many as the most beautiful sports grand tourer on sale today. Just like the DB5 – the luxury zeitgeist of the 1960s, the DB9 is hand-tailored to customer specification and uses the latest technology.
These unique images show the revised DB9 new for 2011, in the aptly named Quantum Silver paint finish together with the actual car from the 1964 film. The optional paint is the same color as the DBS that featured in the film Quantum of Solace in 2008.
