Bond DB5 | Cars
The most famous car in the World!
The Aston Martin DB5, is the brand’s most famous car but, in reality, it surely has to be the most famous car ever. Even someone who knows incredibly little about cars knows exactly what this is, almost entirely thanks to the bloke who’s usually in a sharp suit and into a spot of international espionage.
So, it’s a dream come true for me and for you, who grew up watching Bond movies all his life to get anywhere near a DB5 in Silver Birch, let alone get the keys to one. This car is a recreation of the famous Aston, built on a modern chassis so that it not only looks unbelievably beautiful, but handles incredibly too.
The Aston Martin DB5 is a British grand tourer, produced by Aston Martin and designed by Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, originally produced from 1963 to 1965 and was part of the legendary DB series of cars, during Aston Martin’s many years under David Brown Limited ownership. It was an evolution of the DB4 (obviously), but even Aston Martin admits that the car was ‘virtually identical in appearance to the Series 5’ version of its predecessor. It’s powerful, smooth, classy and it will charm the pants off you, it litterally has a licence to thrill!
No wonder James Bond likes it so much.

I had an experience day booked with 3 cars, unfortunately 1 of the cars I chose wasn't available which turned out to be a not so bad thing as I picked another car that was brilliant. It was very well organised throughout from start to finish, if I had any say in how to improve the days I would increase the laps to 3 or make the distance longer as the drive is over too quick, you can buy extra laps if wanted but some people may not be able too or afford to buy the extra laps, also I'd have the instructor write your lap time on the card but apart from that, what a great dayJohn Murphy
Came to the car chase heroes in Elvington, York today for my dad's belated birthday Aston Martin driving experience and high speed passenger ride. Dad said he really enjoyed it, especially once he got used to the track. He drove three Aston Martins, DB5, DB9 and the V8 Vantage coupe. It was great to see all the other cars and watch them race around the track. A great day out for any race car or muscle car enthusiast.Alexandra Haigh
Just had a day out and cannot recommend them enough - this was a day for my wife Sally and she had dreamed of driving the Aston Martin DB5 and DB9 which she did - 6 laps in each and loved every minute. Special credit to Darren who took us on a high speed lap - skilful, engaging, knowledgeable and reassuringly good at his job, we blasted around the circuit hitting every apex at speed - this is a man who not only knows his job, he knows how to deliver an amazing service to his passengers so thanks Darren for a brilliant experience ???????? The only question now is when can we do it again ❤️????????????Sally

I drove this car on the 26/11/22, and it's the closest I will ever get to a real DB5! This replica is built on a Honda S2000 and its great fun to drive! My instructor on the day was Chris, he was awesome, and he helped me get the best out of my drive.Ashley Varley
Being a Bond Fan. My Children bought me the Triple Bond Drive, Choosing the ultimate DB5.. & DB9 with V8 Vantage. Quick sign in & a chance to add to your experience if you want.. then it wasn't long to drive your car/s with an professional. For a few extra £'s.. inside/outside video footage & including pics of you in your car/s out on the track. Totally a fun day out.. can't wait to book again with the familymr p williams
I really enjoyed my experience in the James bond DB5 carMikey Durbidge
Wonderful day from start to finish, plenty of places to park in the guest car park, PLUS people who have had their drive are going back to their own cars with huge smiles on their faces! Yes, you do get asked if you want to add another car/lap to your day but its totally up to you, I said no and that was fine. The professional drivers are fantastic and put you totally at your ease. The fast lap with a professional driver - the first three people waiting are all put into the same car, it was scary as hell as the driver decided to race an Ariel Atom! We had 2 laps and I was glad when it was over although the 2 guys in the car loved it! :-) Fantastic day, couldnt fault it and you get a discount to go back, book direct with a discount, cant wait to go back for another go! xxxxMaxine Armstrong
Fab opportunity to drive a car which I traveled in as a toddler with my Dad in the early 60s. Sorry the Bond gizmos weren't the priority for me. Had a fab experience & Terry was a great help.Michele Twelftree

My wife and I had the triple Aston Martin experience at Abingdon today and despite the cold it was really good and felt safe out on the track with good tuition from the instructors. We didn't have to wait long for each drive but we both agreed that the DB5 was the best car! Well organized- would recommend this experience.Chris
What a wonderful driving experience at Abingdon - belated birthday treat from my sons. All the staff were so friendly and helpful especially Michaela and all the instructors were excellent - Paul, Dan and Darren - thank you! Loved the HSPR! My son had picked the perfect mix of cars - Jag E type, McLaren and the DB5 which has now become my dream car! I'm going to book Heroes for my older son now! The only downside was the queuing to get in but well worth the wait! Thank you Car Chase Heroes.andrea surkes
A fantastic Driving Experience! Three different cars but the same level of professionalism, friendliness and encouragement from all the staff, from check in to departure. A truly amazing experience. Thanks to everyone at Car Chase Heroes - you are all my heroes!Gillian Simpson
Just a great day, well organised with superb and really fun staff/instructors who should be immensely proud of the hundreds of guests they looked after. Nothing an issue. Everything geared( forgive the pun) towards a rewarding day. Thank you.Nick Wring
I was given this car experience for my 60th Birthday, what a lovely experience I had. Driving this fantastic car such a smooth ride, instructor was brilliant as well made me feel at ease explained everything in detail. Weather was a bonus too. All the staff were friendly from the moment I got there to the finish line look after you so well. Very well organised from start to finish. Cannot wait to do it all again soon, keep up the good work Car Chase Heroes.Christine Turner
Totally awesome absolutely brilliant great day all roundAllan Hodgson
An absolutely fantastic day. Best day ever. My 60th birthday treat to myself. Had a drive of my favourite car since Goldfinger came out and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Gareth, Paul, Toby & Marcel went out of their way to make my day the brilliant day it was. I’m disabled and they brought the cars to me instead of making me walk to them. I couldn’t fault them at all and that is why I’m recommending Car Chase Heroes to everyone. The only downside was having to wear masks which meant that no one could see the huge grin I had on my face all day. Thanks again to Gareth, Paul, Toby & Marcel.Susan Dorrell
Had a great day driving the db5 and the gt40 the only disappointment was that its not an actual db5 but a Honda replica, (though realised this in the discrition after so fair play) Still a great fun car to drive and the gt40 was full of charactrerGeorge

Received a three lap drive in the Aston Martin DB5 as a birthday gift from my wife and chose the Bruntingthorpe venue as this was closest to home. The whole event was very well organised from start to finish. Friendly, efficient admin. staff as well as an informative driving instructor helped me get the most out of my track time in this iconic Aston Martin. All in all, a fantastic experience - Thank you!Ian Hincks
Absolutely brilliant day at Abingdon on 25th May. For track days. Look no further then car chase heroes. Highly recommendedBarry Isom
Just brilliant, from the ease, professionalism and friendliness of the booking process to the friendly and confidence giving instructors in both the DB5 and Shelby Cobra, this was definitely a day to remember and recommend. Loved every minute of it and I will definitely be backIain
