Last year we brought you the news that 25 special edition tributes to the most iconic car in cinematic history, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger, would be available to purchase in its continuation form for a lazy US$3.5 million (AU$5 million) a pop.

Now, we have a behind-the-scenes glimpse as to the extent these cars will mirror the on-screen original. Along with James Bond special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, Aston has decked out the new whips with Q-Branch upgrades, such as rear smoke screens, oil slicks and replica guns mounted under the forward headlights.

While still a fair while off, we're hoping that revolving number plates and bulletproof shields also get the nod before completion. You can preview the new kit below.
