If that's not enough, they will be fitted with all the gadgets that featured in the films such as revolving number plates 'and more' and will be built at the same factory in Newport Pagnell where the original DB5 were made.

There are however a few drawbacks including the price tag at £3.3M each and the fact that not one of them will be road legal.

“The connection between Aston Martin and James Bond is something of which we are very proud,” explains Aston boss Andy Palmer. “It is remarkable that the DB5 remains the definitive James Bond car after so many years.

“To own a Silver Birch DB5, complete with gadgets and built to the highest standards in the very same factory as the original James Bond cars? That is surely the ultimate collectors’ fantasy,” he added.
