Aston Martin No Time To Die Campaign

On August 31, 2021, Aston Martin launched its No Time to Die campaign a month ahead of the film’s release with a one-time screening of the No Time to Die TV spot. Aston Martin celebrated the 25th Bond film’s release not only for its cinematic value, but largely for the enterprise’s long-standing affiliation with the classic British brand. Four iconic Aston Martin models — from past, present and future — made an appearance alongside 007: the DB5, the classic Aston Martin V8, the brand’s super GT, DBS, and the exceptional Aston Martin Valhalla, the forthcoming mid-engined hypercar. The model’s highlight in No Time to Die marks the first time four different Aston Martin vehicles have appeared in a James Bond film.

Aston Martin and Corgi unveiled a full-size replica of the original 1965 Corgi DB5 model to celebrate the return of James Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5 to the big screen. The life-size model (measuring 5.66 metres long, 2.7 metres tall and 2.7 metres deep) replicates the original Corgi design and houses an Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation car. The replica was displayed at Battersea Power Station for the general public until its removal on October 1, 2021.

55 year ago, the last new DB5 rolled off the line at Aston Martin’s then global manufacturing base in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. Now, just 25 DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars are being produced, all authentic reproductions of the DB5 seen on screen. All models will sport the Silver Birch exterior colour specification.

Marek Reichman, EVP and Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin Lagonda, made the grand unveiling with Chris Corbould, OBE, Special Effects Coordinator.

Marek Reichman said, “Aston Martin’s relationship with James Bond spans decades and the DB5 is, without question, the most famous car in the world by virtue of its 50-plus year association. Working with EON Productions and Chris Corbould to build 25 of the DB5 Goldfinger Continuations was a truly unique project for everyone involved at Aston Martin. Now, to work with Corgi — another quintessential British brand — and to see James Bond’s most cherished car sitting inside a to-scale toy box in central London is quite outstanding.”

Chris Corbould said, “Having worked closely with Aston Martin over the years to bring to life some of the most ambitious Bond scenes, and most recently on No Time To Die, I can genuinely say it is a privilege to be here today to help unveil this incredible display for such an iconic car that truly holds a special place in Bond history.”

The team at Los Gatos Luxury Cars is thrilled to learn of the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars’ production. If you have thoughts on the unveilings, let us know. To those from San Jose, San Francisco and Los Altos, thanks for reading the Elevated Standard.

Why You Should Consider an Aston Martin

From a small London workshop in 1913 to an internationally admired brand today, Aston Martin shines as an example of true British craftsmanship. Machines, propulsion, engines and racing will always be at the forefront of design in Aston Martin models, and that has remained true since the dawn of the brand. So wherever you might find yourself in the greater Bay Area, your Aston Martin will turn heads everywhere you go. Our drivers from Los Gatos to San Jose know that it’s important to be driving a car you love, and here at Los Gatos Luxury Cars, we’re here to assist you in finding the “one.” A few of our current favorites in our inventory include:

DB11

Classically Aston Martin, the DB11 makes quite an entrance. The most powerful ‘DB’ model in production is an icon reminiscent of a piece of sculpture — sporting proportions like no other in the lineup. Lavish natural materials and state-of-the-art technology bring you the ultimate in your driving experience. Exemplary in every way, the DB11 is strong and adaptable in any situation you might find yourself in.

DBX

Legendary and spacious, Aston Martin’s first SUV is a sight to behold. The spirit of adventure is strong behind the wheel of this model, and you have to be a true explorer to appreciate everything the DBX has to offer. With a top speed of 181 mph and an all-alloy quad overhead cam, 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with twin “hot-V” mounted turbo chargers, there’s nowhere you can’t go when you’re driving a DBX. 

Vantage

Say hello to athletic poise and agility. Instinctively raw, the Vantage graces every driver with agile performance and dedicated craftsmanship. Unwavering in its principles, the Vantage can reach 62 mph from zero in an astonishing 3.6 seconds. The flagship sports car of the brand has a big name to live up to, and the Vantage brings you the rich interior and provocative exterior you’ve been craving.
