Fake Guns or Not, Five Aston Martin DB5 Goldfingers Firing Them Still Look Cool

Aston Martin is one of those high-end automakers that can get away with presenting just about anything. The British company has delivered, so far, a Bowmore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky blended with a piston, as well as a classic name that was redressed in a smaller (and fully electric) package for the new generation.

The one thing the whisky and The Little Car Company's new Junior had in common was the DB5 name attached to them. That’s the star power of a motoring legend. That said, did anyone get surprised when Aston Martin also decided to create a DB5 continuation series specifically based on the model that appeared in the James Bond movie “Goldfinger” from 1964?

Of course not, because we have grown used to the industry turning its attention to the past with every chance it has. We can’t hold a grudge against it for that. After all, all sorts of industries do that – fashion labels included.

Besides, with the current health situation still very much unresolved, moviegoers have been craving for some cinema-like action for quite a long time. Aston Martin isn’t going to come up with an answer, although we appreciate their social media effort to announce that production of the first five examples has successfully wrapped.

That’s because they did it in a unique way, which was probably also the only way to properly present the DB5 Goldfinger continuation. And that meant showcasing the blockbuster-inspired gadgets that made the DB5 so famous in the movie world - including the hidden machine guns, all firing in tandem.

We know they’re fake but remember, the suspension of disbelief is very important in order to enjoy the cinema experience. And we’re a long way from seeing the 25th installment of the franchise come out to cinemas.

Currently, the “No Time to Die” premiere is set for April 2nd, 2021, after it was delayed by the current global health crisis. It’s the fifth (and final) apparition of Daniel Craig as the leading character, with the production house rumored to get ready to pass the baton to a remarkably interesting new character played by Lashana Lynch.
