Few cars are as revered and sought after worldwide as Aston Martin’s DB5 model. First released in 1963, it is probably the car which the world’s most trusted secret agent - James Bond - is synonymous with, particularly in its starring role when driven by Sean Connery in the film Goldfinger in 1964.
The DB5 was the natural successor from the DB4 series, but boasting a much larger 4.0 litre engine with 202 bhp compared to the DB4’s 3.7 litre engine. Smooth, classy and finely engineered, it hums from 0 - 60mph in 8 seconds, and what it may lack in modern day gadgetry it makes up for in superb handling, superior comfort and astounding performance.
Let’s be honest, it’s only the best for her Majesty’s most trusted and powerful weapon in MI6. You can get to book your time behind the wheel of a DB5 in a variety of Blast and Thrill packages at some excellent venues and locations across the UK through TrackDays.
