If you're familiar with the James Bond movies then you know the Aston Martin DB5 is one of the most iconic cars of the film series. The David Brown Speedback GT ($TBA) looks to take that same look and bring it into the modern era. The Speedback GT looks almost identical to the original, but it's been stretched to fit over the Jaguar XK chasis and features the supercharged 5.0-litter V8 from the KXR. With that engine you'll get 510 horses, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. David Brown only plans to build about 50 of the cars each year so make sure you order well in advance.
