Aston Martin DB5 1/8 model
from Diamond Cars

 

 


Perhaps the best known Aston Martin of all time, due to its starring role in the James Bond movies such as "Goldfinger", "Thunderball", and "Goldeneye", the DB5 was produced only from 1964 to 1965, a total of 1021 cars were built. The bodywork is similar to the series five DB4 Saloons, although due to extra equipment the weight had risen dramatically. The straight six DOHC engine now displaced some 3995cc. Standard engined cars had 282bhp, with Vantage engined cars having 314bhp.
Despite its weight, it was still a maneuverable vehicle capable of handling even the most difficult curves. The Aston Martin DB5 was a luxurious vehicle, coming equipped with air conditioning and power windows as standard accessories.
