No Time To Die opens in the UAE tomorrow, a mega release many say will bring cinemas back up to pre-Covid capacity. The Daniel Craig starrer will pay tribute to two supercars from Aston Martin’s past: the DB5 and the V8 Saloon. The movie also features the 2021 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera and a concept car in the Aston Martin Valhalla.
The Aston Martin DB5 is among the best-known cars in the world thanks to special effects expert John Stears, who modified the DB5 for use by James Bond in 1964’s Goldfinger. Although Ian Fleming had placed Bond in a DB Mark III in the novel, Stears persuaded the company to make its DB5 prototype available. Since then, the DB5 has gone on to guest appear in Thunderball, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall, and Spectre.
