Production Dates: July 1963 - September 1965 Perhaps the most famous Aston Martin because of the specially equipped Silver Birch DB5 that starred in the James Bond film "Goldfinger" and in standard form in "Thunderball". The DB5 made a comeback to the big screen in the 1995 film "GoldenEye", and has had a cameo role in subsequent Bond movies. Regarded by many as the most beautiful Aston Martin produced, DB5 shares many similar traits to the DB4. However, DB5s most substantial change occurred under the bonnet. The 6 cylinder engine capacity was enlarged to 4 litres by increasing the bore to 96mm. Significant too was the introduction of a full synchromesh ZF 5 speed gearbox. Other chassis changes included the adoption of the Girling disc brakes that had only been used on the DB4GT, along with 15 wheels. A Convertible was also offered and was available with a steel hard top with an exceptionally large rear window.
