Aston Martin Works perform miracles on 007 DB5 clone

editorial image

Aston Martin Works was given the brief to 'clone' the DB5 owned by the makers of the Bond movies, EON Productions, to provide a second car for filming.

The project started with sourcing an appropriate car, facilitated by Aston Martin Works. Once the car was sourced it took just a matter of weeks for the DB5 to be transformed from green with beige interior to the stunning Silver Birch paintwork with black trim. This was then 'distressed' so as not to appear brand new. The final touch to the paintwork was to add a keyline on the roof to represent the exit hatch for the ejector seat. In addition to the aesthetic works, the car also required a complete mechanical overhaul in preparation for filming.
