The 7 Coolest Spy Gadgets on the Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Tribute Car

Last year, Aston Martin announced plans to build 25 new DB5s in partnershipwith EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films. The continuation cars would be built as a tribute to the DB5's role in the classic Bond flick Goldfinger , and most importantly, would have several functional spy gadgets, just like the original car had in the film. The cars won't be road-legal, but we can easily see why any car geek and/or movie lover would want one. And even though the Goldfinger DB5s are still being built today, Aston Martin gave us a closer look at the spy gadgets it's building into each car. Here are seven of the coolest ones currently in development. --> Smoke Screen Not all spy gadgets need to be lethal. Some simply help you escape unseen. On the DB5, that means having a smoke screen system installed in the rear of the car. We're not sure how effective it would actually be, but by 1960s movie logic, it was genius. Oil Slick Again, we're not sure this particular gadget would be very helpful in 2019. Tires are grippier than they were 50 years ago, and spraying oil on the ground is less likely to cause someone to spin out. But if you're in a car chase, it can't hurt to give this taillight-mounted oil slick delivery system a shot. Revolving Licence Plates Unlike the first two gadgets, the passage of time hasn't made this one any less useful. But instead of using it to fool the bad guys, a revolving license plate would make dodging tolls a breeze. It would be very illegal, and you definitely shouldn't try it, but we can dream, can't we? Machine Guns It doesn't get much cooler than a pair of machine guns hidden in the front lights of a DB5. And the continuation cars will still have them. Sadly, the twin front machine guns won't be functional, but seeing them pop out from behind the light housing will probably never get old. Battering Rams If you need to drive through a wall or push a bad guy's car off the road, the DB5's retractable front and rear battering rams should prove useful. And when you're a spy, those kinds of things apparently happen all the time. Gotta be prepared, right? Ejector Seat Button Sadly, there's no actual ejector seat. Apparently , that would have been one step too far for Aston Martin. Even though that's disappointing, considering how litigious people are these days, we understand. But you can at least pretend an ejector seat was included with the button hidden in the DB5's shifter. Rear Bullet Shield If you're a movie spy, you have to be ready for any car chase to involve the bad guys shooting at your car. So obviously, you need a bullet shield that can pop up and protect your rear window. Sure, it may negatively impact rear visibility, but on a car that isn't street-legal, it's not like you'll have to parallel park with the bullet shield still up.
