>Goldfinger
Widely recognised as one of the most famous cars of all time, the sleek Aston Martin DB5 became the very first car of choice for James Bond in Goldfinger (Sean Connery, 1964); the third spy film in the iconic Bond series.

Goldfinger became the first official Bond blockbuster. One of the most memorable scenes features Bond being issued with his DB5 (registration BMT 216A) prior to his assignment. The DB5, modified by Q, included an ejector seat, machine guns, oil slick emitter, rear window shield and bulletproof glass.

The Scalextric model typifies the beauty of this iconic car and includes working gadgets, such as an ejector seat (activated when passing the special trackside bollard) and manually-triggered rear shield.

The Goldfinger version of the DB5 is the first Scalextric release in a series of three highly collectable Limited Edition Aston Martin DB5s from the iconic movies of James Bond.


>Casino Royale
The stunning 1963 Aston Martin DB5 is one of the most famous James Bond cars of all time.

The acclaimed 2006 Bond movie, Casino Royale, was the first to star Daniel Craig as MI6 agent 007 and the 21st film in the celebrated Bond movie series.

Casino Royale chronicles the beginning of the James Bond story; during which Bond wins a striking Aston Martin DB5 in a poker game in the Bahamas (registration 56526).

The DB5 from Casino Royale is faithfully modelled by Scalextric; the second Scalextric release in a series of three highly collectable Limited Edition Aston Martin DB5s from the legendary James Bond movies.

>GoldenEye
The beautiful Aston Martin DB5; possibly the most famous car in the world due to its prominent role as the ultimate James Bond vehicle.

Amongst the car’s various cameo roles in a total of four Bond movies over the years, the DB5 starred in the opening chase sequence to the 1995 blockbuster, Goldeneye (the first Bond film to star Pierce Brosnan).

The DB5 was given the registration number BMT 214A for Goldeneye and a total of three cars were used during the filming of the movie; one for close-up shots and two further stunt cars for the dramatic chase scenes in the hills above Monte Carlo.

The classic DB5 from Goldeneye is the third variant of the Aston Martin offered by Scalextric as part of a three-car Limited Edition collector series from the legendary James Bond movies.
