Good day, Mr. Bond, your old Aston Martin DB5 is here. The British touring car that made cinematic history almost 50 years ago makes a return in Skyfall, the latest film in the James Bond 007 franchise.

Caught on the set during a chase sequence, the classic DB5 adorns the original number plate, BMT 216A, as seen in Goldfinger, where the Aston made its first appearance.
