Driving JAMES BOND'S Aston Martin DB5 with all the WORKING GADGETS!

This is James Bond's Aston Martin DB5, with all the real working gadgets! Aston Martin have let me get behind the wheel of the new DB5 Goldfinger Continuation which has been built to match the famous BMT 216A from the movies, loaded with features like the front machine guns, smoke screen, radar system and more. Let's check it out!
The DB5 is the definitive James Bond car, which will feature in No Time To Die, the 25th 007 movie and the 8th time the car will be appearing, this time alongside a trio of other Aston Martin models. The original car is of course a 1960s DB5 Saloon, of which 900 were built in total but the Goldfinger Continuation is in fact a brand new car! Built at Works in Newport Pagnell, the original Aston Martin factory, a total run of 25 identical Silver Birch models featuring the full array of Q's gadgets are coming.
The new cars are built in every way to mimic the originals, using the same materials, techniques, scanning of original parts, and even in the same halls. With the first car being a prototype, it is the only ever opportunity to drive one on the road as the production cars will not be road legal - given 1960s standards do not conform to modern regulations. It follows from the 25 DB4 GTs and 19 DB4 GT Zagatos that have been built as Continuation models, with 25 chosen to match the number of Bond films.
Kicking off at Stoke Park, home to some of the movie scenes, I'm on the road in the new-classic DB5 to head towards Aston Martin Works to then explore the gadgets in full. The features we can demo include the machine guns at the front, rotating number plates, battering rams, bullet proof screen, oil slicks, smoke, radar, ejector seat roof and more. These were all the ideas for Q back in the Goldfinger movie, now brought back into life for the customers of the new DB5 Goldfinger Continuation model.
Thanks for watching, Tim

I'm driving James Bond's Aston Martin DB5! This is the new DB5 Goldfinger Continuation being built by Aston Martin Works and featuring all the 007 gadgets from Q like the front machine guns, smoke and oil slicks, bullet proof shield and plenty more. Not only am I going to run you through everything it can do, but also experience what it's like to drive in the most iconic Bond car ever!

I would like to thank you , Aston Martin, and the customer whom allowed you use of their car (for the indoor demonstrations). I just smiled for 20+ minutes straight thanks to this video. What an automobile, I would rather have one of those than a modern super car.

Hey Tim, great video as always. I can only imagine how much of an experience that really was, and how much of a pain it was to get that set up in the first place. Not that I would ever be able to afford one of those or ever be considered for one of the 25 even if I could, but I have to ask. What would the process be to make one a road legal car, or did that discussion ever happen?

Watched it only because I was curious about the tire shredder that would extend from the wheel hub. I know the ejector seat is technically impossible--Mythbusters couldn't replicate it without adding huge hydraulic cylinders inside the back of the seat, which made the seat look very unusual. Of course, you wouldn't really want that option anyway. Might accidentally kill somebody. I've seen one of the original movie cars, and it had the tire shredder, disguised to look like one of the knockoff wheel bolts. The guy mentions it at 15:00 as "the tire shredding kit" in a fancy box in the trunk, but nothing more. Disappointed :( Except for the bulletproof shield, I have doubts that any of those gadgets would actually work as intended in the real world. Mythbusters tested both oil-slick and smokescreen techniques, with mixed results. As I recall, smoke was only marginally effective; oil not at all. The license plate changer built into the front bumper, while clever, is a dead giveaway that the car's been altered. It just doesn't look right, even from a design perspective. No one would design a bumper like that. And then you have that cutout panel in the roof. Being only on the passenger side it doesn't look like a sunroof. Even the tire shredder I saw (IRL) wasn't very well disguised. (Perhaps why it's a "kit" on this car?) But it did look like it could do the job. A heavy-duty bladed thing, painted silver. But I'm just wondering if it's mechanically possible for that thing to come out of the axel, much less puncture a tire. Personally, I'd rather have an unmodified DB5 rather than this one with its fake gadgets and sound effects.

No windows can open period back in the 60s? I suppose he does not realise the buttons did not used to be on the doors, even my 50s land rover windows opened seems a somewhat clueless to think cars did not have opening windows. It was not until the 90s the buttons all ended up the doors think it was Americans that wanted the buttons the door. Still one of the best videos on the internet imagine buying a new DB5 I am not fussed on the bond features but a new DB5 shame it can not be drive but if could afford one would keep it in a countries that allowed it to be driven

The original DB5 prototype which was in reality a DB4 GT and driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger was a 4 speed sans overdrive which was actually featured in an episode of the Saint. Initial run of the DB5 came with 4 speed with optional O/D.

Well...the gearbox is a bit loud..it should not be like that even in period! At £3.3M and not road legal, I think only rather inexpert buyers would go for it as an “investment” object. Also...it must be the only “Flat six” engined Aston in history...I hope you opened the bonnet and had a look!!! I would not add that to your collection Tim...there are much nicer cars to buy!,😎😎😎😎
