Lot Essay

"There are few greater synergies in the world of film-making than that between James Bond and the Aston Martin DB5. Aston Martin is part of Bond’s DNA."
Michael G. Wilson, producer.

This Aston Martin DB5 stunt car is one of only eight built specifically for James Bond and is to date the only DB5 stunt car to be released for public sale by Aston Martin and EON Productions. Aston Martin has been associated with the James Bond franchise for over fifty years and has featured in thirteen films to date. The DB5 stunt car was exclusively engineered and handcrafted for No Time To Die (2021). All the DB5 stunt cars were modified in different ways for use, this car being one of a few to include the bespoke No Time To Die gadgets and mocked-up side panel damage.

In the film, the DB5 stunt car features in an exciting opening chase sequence, driven by James Bond (Daniel Craig), with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) at his side, through Matera, Italy. The DB5 stunt car demonstrates its incredible dynamic capabilities as the pair drive at high speed through the town in an attempt to shake off their pursuers. The Matera chase sequence features heavily in No Time To Die, with James Bond deploying the gadget-laden motor’s hidden machine guns.

The DB5 stunt car features a modern 3.2-litre straight 6 petrol engine alongside a manual gearbox to maximise the dynamic capability of the stunt car. The body panels are all carbon fibre, while the handcrafted interior has also been made using carbon fibre and features cut down sport Tillett stunt seats. The dash was created through an innovative 3D printing technique, featuring an original DB5 type steering wheel and chronograph dials which are aesthetically sympathetic to an original DB5.

The DB5 stunt car suspension and braking system are completely bespoke and were uniquely engineered by Aston Martin Special Projects. Guided by special effects supervisor Chris Corbould with regard to what was expected of the car on set, the Aston Martin Special Projects team then developed a completely new suspension and braking system which made the car capable of its incredible stunt performances.

This vehicle was built specifically to perform dynamic stunts during the filming of No Time To Die.
