A Quick Tip by MNeulander

  • Sep 5, 2010
Of course I love this car.  It was the first bond car and had all the neat gadgets we all secretly wish we had to help us get through rush hour traffic!!!

In Goldfinger, Q reveals the Aston Martin DB5, "with modifications. Its windows are bulletproof, and the number plates, as they're known in England, are revolving. Then there are the controls within the armrest that can produce a smokescreen and an oil slick and raise a bulletproof shield (over the already bulletproof window). There are also front-wing machine guns and a rotating flower of blades that extend from the hubcaps. Finally, the top of the gear shifter flips to reveal a button, which Q tells Bond never to press. If he does, the roof will open up and the passenger will be ejected. "You're joking," says Bond. "An ejector seat" "I never joke about my work," says Q". Naturally; Bond was never not going to press that button.
