I was able to photograph this car in May 2006 whilst it was on display in the Heritage Restorations section of Works Service at Newport Pagnell. I also saw it a few months later at Works Service where it is undergoing a restoration. To date, six different DB5’s have actually appeared in four different Bond films although I still believe a DB5 would also have appeared in ‘The World is Not Enough’ had the footage not ended up on the cutting room floor.
DB5 for 007 James Bond (Casino Royale)
(1963 - 2006)
By now, you will have no doubt seen the 19th Bond Film, Casino Royale, staring Daniel Craig. Basically, the film chronicles the very beginning of the 007 James Bond story and includes this particular DB5, chassis number DB5/1399/L. Instead of having the car presented to him by 'Q', James Bond is very fortunate to win this car in a game of poker whilst in the Bahamas.
