James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 @ the Cincinnati Art Museum

CINCINNATI, OH.- This summer, for one month only, an icon of design, film and popular culture is on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum: James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5.

Muscular and debonair. --Almost immediately following its 1964 debut, the DB5 was sexy and stealthy enough in its design to become the co-star of James Bond, Agent 007. In true 007-fashion, it features a revolving... [Lire la suite]
