Regarded to be the most iconic Aston Martin ever created, it was fitted with an all aluminium 4.0L inline-6 engine, a 5-speed gearbox produced by Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen - a German car parts manufacturer - and was fitted with disc brakes.
A high-performance Vantage was introduced in 1964 that produces more horsepower with revised camshaft profiles and Weber carburettors.
Standard equipment included leather interior trim, woll pile carpets, electric windows, reclining seats, a magnesium-alloy body, and a fire extinguisher. A shooting-brake body concept was custom built for Sir David Brown, and an additional twelve coupés were modified to this design by Harold Radford & Co in 1965.
It is well known for being James Bond's car of choice, but this almost never happened during pre-production of Goldfinger. Sir William Lyons, co-founder of Jaguar, refused to lend three Jaguar E-Types for production of the film, and pushed producer Albert R. Broccoli to use the DB5 in its place.
