FIVE-ORITES: Aston Martin DB5.

Just over 1,000 of these cars were ever produced. The DB5 (named after David Brown, the head of Aston Martin from 1947–1972) was exclusive, and iconic. James Bond drove the DB5 in Thunderball, Casino Royale, Tomorrow Never Dies and GoldenEye and was commercially produced from 1963-65. One of the cars used in the film recently sold at auction for $4.7 million. George Harrison owned a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 which sold at auction for over a half a million dollars.

The convertible and the Vantage are well photographed and lusted for, but it is the DB5 Shooting Brake that makes the best eye candy for me.
