The Corgi Aston Martin DB5 was first released in October 1965, almost a year after the DB5 made it's on-screen debut in Goldfinger (1964). The car was certainly popular in its day, selling over 6,000,000 models. It also received the first ever 'Toy of the Year' award.

In the wake of the classic Goldfinger film, starring Sean Connery as British agent, James Bond, Corgi began its decades-long relationship with the Bond franchise producing many different models, including a gold Aston Martin DB5 1:46 scale model complete with retractable machine guns, ejector seat and rear bullet screen.

50 years later Hornby is unveiling a fully featured re-issue of the Corgi original DB5. There are a limited number of special edition gold and silver models produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary milestone and available to buy now.
