Happy Birthday: Aston DB

Aston Martin is celebrating 70 years of its famous DB models. The initials of famous owner David Brown adorn just under half the company's models - models which are still going strong today.

DB5 (1963-65)

The DB5 arrived in 1963 - the year in which it was also immortalised by its gadget-laden appearance in the third James Bond film Goldfinger. Many regard it as the prettiest of all Astons.
