5. Aston Martin DB5 (Goldfinger)
James Bond may be known for his beautiful and hot leading ladies but one thing is for sure: his beautiful cars are definitely not forgotten. In this franchise, Mr. Bond is sporting a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 which is quite a work of art, but don’t be deceived ’cause this beauty is a weapon on its own (at least in the movies). It has machine guns, an ejector seat, smoke screen, oil-slick sprayer and even a map screen.
