Gadgets all go for next year's Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5

Aston Martin previews the spy gadgets going into its “Goldfinger” DB5 continuation cars

If Goldfinger's henchman Oddjob is coming after you, Aston Martin has just the auto you need.

Corbould says the challenge in building these gadgets into a road vehicle (although it isn't street-legal) is to actually put them all into one auto, whereas in a film there would be multiple examples, likely with a single gadget each.

Aston Martin has released a video to tease the inner workings of the smoke screen, taillight-deploying oil slick and the front turn signal machine guns.

Aston Martin's announcement of making Goldfinger DB5 Continuation had delighted film and vehicle geeks immensely. In case all of that isn't enough, the auto will have extendable front and rear battering rams. But a surprise will greet "when you operate the ejector seat button", warns Aston Martin representatives.

These will be "continuation cars", meaning that, although newly built, they will be exactly like the 1964 DB5s in almost all respects except for the fancy gadgets. The facility is dedicated to restoring classic Aston Martins.

A 1965 example of the DB5, estimated at CA$1 million - CA$1.2 million, is offered in the classic cinematic finish of silver birch paintwork and black leather interior, the auction house wrote.

The 25 Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars are set to feature a similar array of "extras" all standard-fitment on the new cars, of course which Chris Corbould's team are perfecting. It will sell each vehicle for a whopping $3.5 million. Someone paid $4.6 million in 2010 for one of those.

At a price of NZ$5.4m, the Goldfinger continuation DB5 is truly the ultimate toy for the Bond fan.

Creating these cars posed an even greater challenge than making the cars for the movies since different cars or parts of cars were used to film different shots. In these new replicas, all the devices must be made to work on a single automobile that can actually be driven.

Work to create the collectors' item new Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars with fully functioning gadgets is taking shape with Bond film-maker EON Productions and its Oscar-winning special effects guru Chris Corbould OBE.

One thing to keep in mind is that the cars won't necessarily be legal to drive on public roads.
