TO CELEBRATE the launch of James Bond DB5, Hero Collector Books is giving away 10 copies signed by Marek Reichman, creative director of Aston Martin, and one lucky winner will receive an exclusive money-can’t-buy tour of Aston Martin Works, the heritage home of the prestigious car maker.

The definitive book about one of the most significant and coveted cars in movie history, James Bond DB5 includes storyboards, diagrams, design materials, and many rare and beautiful photographs that cover every detail of the car, from the over-riders to the exhaust. 

James Bond’s DB5 has forewords by Daniel Craig, producer Michael G. Wilson and Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. 

In addition to the bumper crop of Bond books, one of the 10 winners and a guest of their choice will be given a private tour of Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. 

Aston Martin Works is the historic home of Aston Martin with a heritage stretching back more than 65 years, and tours of the factory are extremely rare, even for Aston Martin customers.

Newport Pagnell has an even longer association with bespoke and luxury vehicle-making being the home to Salmon’s Coachworks since 1830: a carriage builder and later a coachmaker. These skills were the primary reason for the move from Aston Martin’s former factory in Feltham, Middlesex.

During the 50-plus years that Aston Martin sports cars were made at Newport Pagnell, a total of just over 13,300 cars left the factory, destined for customers all over the world. Among the many iconic models designed and built at Newport are: DB4, DB5 & DB6, V8 Vantage, William Towns Lagonda and original Vanquish.

Subject to car availability, the competition winner will also have the chance to see an example of the last Continuation car made at Newport Pagnell: the DB5 Goldfinger Continuation. Twenty-five of these cars have been made for Aston Martin collectors and 007 enthusiasts worldwide with each one retailing for £3.3m in the UK.

Aston Martin will endeavour to show off the car’s gadgets to the tour winner, which include those seen in the original James Bond film Goldfinger.
