The first five of the 25 Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars have rolled off the production line at Newport Pagnell in England. The car maker has released a video of the five iconic Bond cars, showing them firing from their simulated twin front machine guns, just like the Bond car in the movie.

The video also highlights other Bond-car features like rear smokescreen and revolving number plates. The DB5 Goldfinger Continuation cars are being reproduced 55 years after the last DB5 rolled off the production line. The cars are being created in association with Bond filmmaker EON Productions and featuring a broad suite of working gadgets first seen in the film. These include an array of functioning devices created by Bond film special effects supervisor Chris Corbould OBE.
