The original car is of course a 1960s DB5 Saloon, of which 900 were built in total but the Goldfinger Continuation is in fact a brand new car! Built at Works in Newport Pagnell, the original Aston Martin factory, a total run of 25 identical Silver Birch models featuring the full array of Q's gadgets are coming.
The new cars are built in every way to mimic the originals, using the same materials, techniques, scanning of original parts, and even in the same halls. With the first car being a prototype, it is the only ever opportunity to drive one on the road as the production cars will not be road legal - given 1960s standards do not conform to modern regulations. It follows from the 25 DB4 GTs and 19 DB4 GT Zagatos that have been built as Continuation models, with 25 chosen to match the number of Bond films.
