For sure there is no one in this world not to hear about James Bond’s famous ride: Aston Martin DB5. And even after a very long time the car is still famous, at very least, it’s the most famous Aston Martin in the world. There were only two units built and one of them was driven by Sean Connery in the Goldfinger and Thunderball movies.

The Daily Telegraph’s Motoring Correspondent Andrew English outlines the car’s history and the gadgets that made it so famous — machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, tracking device, removable roof panel, oil slick sprayer, nail spreader and smoke screen, all controlled from factory installed toggles and switches hidden in the center arm-rest. The DB5 is powered by a 4.0 Liter engine that delivers 325 HP, an impressive output for 1963.
