We have to start with the most vintage Bond car of all time – the Aston Martin DB5. Various versions of this iconic silver ride have shown up in the Bond franchise since 1964. 56 years later, this spectacular car is still the star of the show. It’s been in Goldfinger, Thunderball, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, and Skyfall. No wonder the car was given the red carpet treatment at the movie’s premiere.

For all its beauty, this car is also a beast. Throughout the years, it has been outfitted with machine guns, front and rear ram, smoke screen pipe, oil slick mechanism, tire slashers, bullet shield, and if all that didn’t help, there’s the ejection seat. Spoiler alert, although it is teased in the trailer, the DB5 creates a scene that will be legendary by doing a 360-degree burnout while firing machine guns from the headlights.
