Spoiler alert: the classic Aston Martin DB5 appears in the new James Bond Skyfall movie.

This is the 23rd movie of 007's adventures and the fifth to feature the iconic silver DB5. However, as another spoiler alert, the movie doesn't end well for the car!

The car was prepared for its role by Aston Martin Works at the company's Newport Pagnell base in England. The division was established to meet the needs of Aston Martin owners of every model and the brief from the filmmakers, EON Productions, was to clone the DB5 they currently own to provide a second car for filming.

The project started with Aston Martin Works sourcing an appropriate car before the heritage team fully restored it. In a few weeks the DB5 was transformed from green with beige interior to the stunning Silver Birch paintwork with black trim, which was 'aged so as not to appear new. The final touch was a keyline on the roof to represent the hatch for the ejector seat.
