WIN A SCALEXTRIC ASTON MARTIN DB5!
Scalextric Aston Martin DB5 giveaway: Designed by Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, the Aston Martin DB5 was first released in 1963 and is perhaps most famous for being one of the most recognizable James Bond cars to date. The DB series was named in honour of Sir David Brown, the owner of Aston Martin from 1947 to 1972, and, while the DB5 is more often associated with darker shades, like the silver it wore in Goldfinger (1964), the slot car here is produced in a vibrant red. It has also been the centre of many pop-culture references, with actor Roger Moore using the silver version when he played a James Bond parody character in the film Thecannonball
Run (1981), and Leonardo Dicaprio seen driving one in Catchmeifyoucan (2002) — imitating Bond, down to wearing the suit. To win this month’s prize, simply answer the question below, then submit your answer at classiccar.co.nz/competitions. Competition closes April 13, 2017.
