The David Brown Speedback Looks Like Something James Bond Would Drive

The David Brown Speedback from young automotive company David Brown Automotive is inspired by the Aston Martin DB5, famous for being probably the most famous James Bond vehicle

The Speedback's 5-liter V8 engine provides 510 horse power, 461 pounds-feet of torque and enough juice to help the car zoom from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds.

The Speedback also borrows certain elements from Jaguar, like for example its 6-speed automatic gearbox. The car's aluminum chassis is inspired by that of the Jaguar XK, as is the plush interior decor.

While the Speedback may seem like more of a tribute car than an original idea, it does have one unique feature -- a hidden seat built into the trunk. What this might be used for is up to your imagination. Stats for Retro British Spy Cars Trending: This Year & Mild
