261 - James Bond's Aston Martin D.B.5


£35.99

Arguably the most famous Corgi Toy ever produced, this feature packed model was rush-released in 1965, just in time for the festive season. In only seven weeks Corgi sold three-quarters of a million of this marvellous model, causing stocks to completely run out by Christmas Day. Despite this huge number (it went on to sell just under four million!), fully-working mint condition examples in their original boxes are extremely rare and extremely valuable.

As to why the model was painted gold – unlike Bond’s silver DB5 in the movies and on the model’s box artwork – that was apparently on a whim by Corgi executives, inspired by the theme of the previous year’s Bond movie, Goldfinger!
