Due to popular demand, ‘Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style’ is now on at Burj Khalifa for an extended period, with fans of the franchise flocking to get up-close to the costumes, gadgets, props and more, which are on display.

The exhibition highlights the craft behind the more-than fifty-year-old franchises, focusing on its distinctly British luxuriance, at Burj Khalifa ANNEX. 

Aston Martin DB5

Upon arrival at ‘Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style’, guests are greeted by an Aston Martin DB5, one of only seven seen on screen throughout the Bond franchise. The DB5 displayed at the entrance to the exhibition was seen on screening in the 1995 blockbuster, GoldenEye; Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997; the franchises highest grossing tittle, Skyfall (2012); and finally, in the most recent of the films, Spectre in 2015 – making it the most featured DB5 in the history of the franchise.

For the 2012 hit, Skyfall, the original technical drawings of the ejector seat button, done by Michael Lamont in 1964, were lent to the Bond art department so that it could be recreated for the film.

Only one of the two original DB5’s from Goldfinger still exist, located in USA in private ownership, after it was bought at auction in 2010 for £2.6 million pounds.
