Happy Birthday 007 !
July 7, 2012

The 50th anniversary of the first 007 James Bond movie Dr. No - which premiered in 1962 - pays also tribute to the evolving pursuit of a suitable " company " car for the main character. Aston Martin has a long-term relationship with James Bond. The association began in 1964 with the film Goldfinger featuring an iconic Aston Martin DB5 and has continued to the present day, with the Aston Martin DBS making its first public appearance in Casino Royale. In 2008, the DBS made its second consecutive appearance in Quantum of Solace, which took the marques' total to ten Bond film appearances.

The latest 007 James Bond movie - featuring Daniel Craig for the third time as the secret agent - is scheduled to premiere on October 26th, 2012 in London, where the first Bond movie opened half a century ago. And speculations have, that the iconic Aston Martin DB 5 will again be the chosen set of wheels to carry our favorite G-man around. Maybe for the next 50 years...   Shaken - not stirred!
