James Bond Cars: Goldfinger, Thunderball

Movies 3 & 4: Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965)

In Goldfinger, James Bond (Sean Connery) drove the Aston Martin DB5 (1963). It is perhaps one of the most recognizable Bond car. The DB5 came out just 3 months prior to shooting so it was a newer car than the DB Mark III featured in the novel. Many gadgets were added to this car including the ejector seat, machine guns, and smoke screen. The model car of the DB5 became the best selling toy of the year.
