The Aston Martin DB5 in my eyes, defines the whole concept and idea of the Cool Wall. It is the car that so many people desire to own and dream of spending their lottery winnings on. This car look elegant and timeless and is a permanent reminder of the glory days of handcrafted production techniques. People who have driven it say that it by no means the perfect drivers car but that doesn’t dampen the appeal of the DB5. The Cool Wall is not about finding the best car to drive or most practical or cheapest to run. It is simply about the coolness that the car gives off. And most importantly, how I feel about it. This car would arguably not have been the success is was without the help of the big screen. After featuring in Goldfinger in 1964, this car became synonymous with the brand James Bond and 50 years later is still the most talked about Bond car. The DB5 is probably the most famous and recognisable Aston Martin will ever make. It will be forever etched into the history books as one of motorings all time greats.
