The model, named The Q Car, was developed by car builder, motorcycle racer and customizer Olivier Spilborghs ("Q") in Vancouver, Canada. When he grew up, he saw one of the original 4 original Aston Martins used in Goldfinger in West Vancouver, where it was on display at Frank Baker’s restaurant The Attic for 13 years. This car switched hands a few times after that and is now owned by and displayed at the Louman Museum in The Netherlands.

A few years ago, inspired by his childhood memories of the car, he decided to create his own DB5 tribute car.

The Q Car took 5 years to build and search all the parts. The gadgets are handmade, and work either via switches or a custom remote control.

Working gadgets include:

- Retractable front machine guns with flashing stobes as “gun fire”

- Rear rotating plate that continues to show all 3 different plates

- Rear smoke screen

- Rear bullit screen

Q is already working on a running DB5 car now, based on a real DB5, but with the added gadgets. We can't wait to see the result which will hopefully be done before the release of Bond 25.
