Aston Martin and James Bond are synonymous and inseparable one from the other. Preparation for the 23rd James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ required the Aston Martin DB5 to be updated in a number of respects giving it breathtaking performance, luxuriously appointed interiors and classic exteriors fit for the caliber of the 007 star. Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell, is well noted for being official heritage and service division of the auto manufacturer and hence responsible for overseeing preparation for Skyfall marquee.
DB5s have featured in a number of James Bond movies. They have been seen in Goldfinger, Thunderball, Goldeneye, Casino Royale and Skyfall. Appearing in Skyfall saw DB5 continuing in its pursuit to meet high standards demanded by James Bond, be it in form of high tech gadgetry and well defined interior and exterior features.
Aston Martin Works worked on DB5’s paint structure, changing it from green with beige interiors to Silver Birch paint work with black trims while distressing the vehicles exteriors to make it appear used. To represent exit hatch for ejector seat the company also added its special craftsmanship to the roof while also giving the car a complete mechanical overhaul ahead of filming.
