Aston Martin DB5

Everything but the Gadgets

The DB5 is often billed as "the most famous car in the world" and is without doubt the most beautiful Aston Martin ever produced. Fans of today's stunning V12 Vantage might disagree, but they'll have to wait nearly 50 years to find out if it ages as well as the DB5 has. You can drive from 0-60 in a leisurely 7.1 seconds and hit a moderate 142 mph top speed. By today's standards, it's nothing special, but in 1964, the car was fantastically fast. It packed a 4 liter straight-6 and a state-of-the-art synchromesh 5-speed gearbox. But it's neither the looks nor the performance that made the car so memorable. Aston Martin's DB5 was immortalised in 1964 as the car driven by everyone’s favorite British spy. If you ever wondered what it was like to drive one, why not pick up the Movie Legends downloadable pack for Need for Speed Most Wanted and check it out?
