Buy a new James Bond Aston Martin for $3.5 million

Luxury vehicle manufacturer Aston Martin Lagonda swung to a loss in the first quarter after it sold fewer higher priced "special" cars.

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.

Chris explained: 'My involvement has chiefly been with the front guns, smoke screen and oil slick gadgets, with Aston Martin engineers producing the other items.

The car-firm, which also released original blueprints and drawings by Bond designer Ken Adams, said: 'For the first time in nearly 55 years Aston Martin is once again building one of the most iconic sports cars in the world as engineering development continues on the forthcoming Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars.

Still to build is the revolving number plate displaying "BMT 216A"; the rear window bulletproof screen; wheel-mounted tire puncture spinners; bumperette battering rams; and of course, the all-important red button on the gearshift knob for any unwanted passengers. The carmaker will sell each for £2.75m plus taxes ($3.56 million).

Trevor Taylor, a neighbour to Mr Fournier, said: "No matter what his age, she should not have done that". In the video, a suspect is seen pushing Fournier with both hands down the front steps of the bus.

The British company is working in cooperation with EON Production to put together 25 examples of the iconic sports vehicle at the Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, England.

All of which is adding up to be one of Aston Martin's most expensive and exclusive cars - and one that is shaping up to be one of the most hard cars to own or drive in Australia. The main manufacturing facility is now in Warwickshire, England.

But the 25 Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars are set to feature a similar array of extras - all standard-fitment on the new cars - which Corbould's team are now perfecting. They will all be made in the same color, Silver Birch. That's a lot, but considering the over 3,000 man-hours invested each one of these cars and the production capped at 25 examples, the price is kind of reasonable.

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. But these new gadget-laden cars will not be legal to drive on public roads, Aston Martin said.

In all, 28 of the James Bond DB5s will be produced, including one that will be kept by Aston Martin, one that will be kept by EON productions, the company that makes Bond movies and is helping to create the cars, and a third that will be auctioned for charity.
