The legendary 1964 Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger.

Bond: Where's my Bentley?
Q: It's had its day, I'm afraid.
Bond: But it's never let me down.
Q: M's orders, 007. You'll be using this Aston Martin DB5, with modifications.

And these modifications are:

[Image: goldfingerdb5gadgets1kb0.1568.jpg]

Q: Windscreen; bulletproof, as are the side and the rear windows. Revolving numberplates, naturally. Valid all countries. (only 2 other numberplates though!)

A radar screen underneath the dashboard, for tracking the homing device Bond slips into other people's cars.

[Image: goldfingerdb5gadgets3ab3.6019.jpg] [Image: goldfingerdb5gadgets4zs0.1286.jpg]

Bond: Ingenious. And useful too, allow a man to stop for a quick one, enroute.
Q: It has not been perfected after years of patient research entirely for that purpose, 007.

The armrest cover opens up to reveal a control panel.

Q: Now this one I'm particuarly keen about, you see the gear lever here? Now if you take the top off, you'll find a little red button.

[Image: goldfingerdb5gadgets5oj9.1474.jpg]

Q: Whatever you do, don't touch it.
Bond: And why not?
Q: Because you'll release this section of the roof, and engage and fire the passenger ejector seat.
Bond: Ejector seat, you're joking!
Q: I never joke about my work, 007.

He certainly wasn't joking.

While being chased around Goldfinger's factory in Switzerland, Bond gets to use all these gadgets, but eventually the Aston loses the chase.

Should get a "*****" (for "Goldfinger" only!) as this car has become a myth, such as Starsky's Torino, Columbo's 403, Bullitt's Mustang or the Dukes' "General Lee".

Aston Martin In Bond Movies.

The very British glamour of Aston Martin cars meant they were a natural choice for James Bond - author Ian Fleming gave his hero a DBIII in the seventh novel, Goldfinger. A long association between 007 and the marque began on screen with the silver DB5 that appears in Goldfinger (1964) and Thunderball (1965). This was James Bond's company car, and in GoldenEye (1995) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) appeared to have become his private car. In On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) a metallic-green DBS appears at the beginning and end of the movie. After an interlude with Lotus, Aston Martins were again used: a charcoal-grey V8 Volante and Vantage in The Living Daylights (1987). After switching to BMW for several films, the Vanquish appeared in Die Another Day (2002). In early 2004, Henrik Fisker, Design Director at Aston Martin, revealed that James Bond drove the new DBS in Casino Royale released in November 2006.[9]

Here's something I've always wondered, this famous is always referred to as a 1964 model. But it carries an A-reg plate which means January-Decemeber 1963. Was the plate ever real or was it always fake?

Although 'BMT 216A' does not appear on the DVLA website it does appear to be part of a valid series of registrations (North London). Some vehicles still exist from that series of numbers for example and it suggests it dates from May 1963? ...

The vehicle details for Austin Mini BMT 225A are:

Date of Liability 01 09 1989
Date of First Registration 15 05 1963
Year of Manufacture Not Available
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 848CC
Vehicle Colour BLUE

The vehicle details for (Matchless) BMT 227A are:

Date of Liability 30 01 2009
Date of First Registration 10 05 1963
Year of Manufacture Not Available
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 350CC

Although its possible still that the registration was false and used only for the movie.

I think just because a registration may not exist in the DVLA's online database doesn't necessarily mean it is fake. With older registrations perhaps the DVLA has never gotten around to putting them onto the database.

True, what I was trying to say was the probability is the registration is genuine but there is still the chance it did not belong to the Aston.

It certainly belonged to AN Aston, but whether to the one in the film I don't know. A friend of mine (now alas passed on) used to work for David Brown in Ireland, and he has shown me a photo of himself outside his house on the outskirts of Dublin with BMT 216A - which to his amazement he was allowed to use when it wasn't on show!

(Quote from www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A521984)
'In January 1963, the Suffix format started to be used by some areas and from 1965 it became a legal requirement. The sequence became XXX 999X where the final letter represented the year the car was first registered.

Therefore, vehicles with a plate ending 'A' eg ABC 123A had been registered during 1963. January 1964 began the 'B' registrations, 1965 'C', and so on and so forth.

There are few 'E' registration plates in circulation. In 1967, the authorities decided that the registration month should be changed from January to August. Therefore, 'F' plates are for cars registered in August 1967 through to July 1968. The system continued on: G - 1968, H - 1969, J - 1970 and so on, missing out 'I', 'O', 'Q', 'U' and 'Z' due to the possibility of mistaking them for the numbers '1', '0', '2' and the letter 'V'. These letters were still used in the initial three-letter part of the plate, though.'

The 'some areas' mentioned above included Middlesex (where the Aston was - possibly - registered)from January and Staffordshire, which started issuing 7-digit registrations in, I think, July or August (I saw my first one in August - on a Škoda Octavia). Contrary to what the quote says, I, Q and Z were never used in the three-letter part of the plate; I and Z were at that time reserved for Irish registrations and Q for tourist transit plates.

Don’t know if it is true but someone told me years ago that this isn’t a DB5 as they hadn’t started producing them at the time the film was made. It was a DB4 with a DB5 body. David Brown wanted to showcase the new car so had it knocked together specially for the film. Does anyone know anything about this or is it one on those myths that does the rounds?

Greetings all!

As an Aston Martin afficionado, I know rather more about these things than I perhaps should.

The main car from the film was actually registered BMT 216A, and it was the prototype DB5 - which was actually developed from the DB4 Series V. There is documentary evidence of the car in its pre-James Bond role, where it served as a test vehicle - it was actually road tested by, I think, Motor magazine.

As for the DB5 proper, that was actually in production from October 1963, which was a full year before the film was released. The BMT registration mark was, I believe, local to Feltham, where the Aston Martin factory was at the time. They had yet to move to Newport Pagnell. The reason why the number no longer appears at the DVLA is because shortly after the film, the car was sold and its new owner re-registered the car 6633 PP - the registration I believe the car still bore when it was stolen from its aircraft-hangar home in Miami, Florida in, if my memory serves, 1996. It has not been seen since.

Perhaps I'm picking nits here - but Q was used for vehicles where the actual date of first registration was unknown - or rather, where the car's provenance could not be ascertained. This included kit cars, where the car was sufficiently different from any donor vehicle to warrant a new registration.

Yes and no, troubadour: we're both right. Q was used as a year letter post-1963 in the way you mention, but as part of a two-letter combination (QB, QC, QD, QS) followed by up to four figures was in fact a tourist-transit registration. (ZZ performed the same function in the Irish Republic, and still does.)

Actually, the stunt car (the one with all the gadgets fitted) was the DB5 prototype, chassis number DP216/1, which started life as a DB4 series 5. The other cars used were all genuine, production DB5s - I believe there were 3 used altogether.

Some answers to the previous comments :

Some additional information about the first screen appearance of BMT 216A in ‘The Saint’ (The Noble Sportsman) :

BMT 216A is the first Aston Martin DB5 ever built, Development Project DP/216/1 registered on 1st May 1963. Dubonnet Red paintwork and slick grey interior. Equipped with Marchal fog units and side-mounted turn indicators.

Pictured on Aston’s 1964 sales brochures. Tested by the magazine Autocar (issue 13 September 1963). First screen appearance in ‘The Saint’ before conversion for ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’. (The car was loaned by Aston Martin to Pinewood Studios). Also pictured on the leaflet edited by Aston Martin ‘Specification of the James Bond Aston Martin’ . See pictures attached.

So BMT 216A in ‘The Saint’ and the gadget car in ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’ is really the same car before and after conversion.

BMT xxxA series was fully issued by Middlesex from April to October 1963.

Of course BMT 216A is a valid (because real!) registration number. BMT 216A was owned by Aston Martin with that registration number until the car was sold to Mr Keyzar who re-registered it as 6633PP. You find copy of the registration document with registration date 1 May 1963 and certification by Sir David Brown in Dave Worrall's book "The Most Famouus Car in the World" (p.146 & 148). I presume it does not appear on the DVLA website as it is no longer in use.

You say that, although the car was actually a demonstration model wearing that same plate before the film.

DP216/1 was also a development vehicle (DP being Development Prototype or somesuch), being a DB4 Series V which, according to some at Aston Martin, had so many modifications that it was thought meet to call it a new model. Incidentally, the MT registration mark was not north London, but Middlesex, which would fit with the company's Feltham address. According to the tax disc used on the car in the film (saying Feb 65), that would put the date of registration at the early part of 1963.

That said, I can find no rhyme nor reason in changing the plates from BMT 216A to 6633PP (a contemporary Buckinghamshire registration) save that either Aston or the new owner of the car could stomach the notoriety the plate would bring.

I believe it is a myth.

The DB5 entered production in Octobe 1963, a year before its debut in Goldfinger. Also, remember this was before the spectre of product placement came to haunt the Big Screen, so Aston Martin were incredibly reluctant to let one of their very expensive cars be mangled in the name of cinematography.

Not entirely true, I'm sure Aston Martin saw an upside for its appearance...otherwise it wouldn't have done it.
Also, note all the Fords in the films, early product placement.
