Leaning heavy on nostalgia, the Speedback looks a lot like the famous Aston Martin DB5 that James Bond first drove in the 1964 film "Goldfinger."

Under the hood is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 putting out 601 horsepower and 565 pound-feet of torque.

Behind the driver and passenger is a folding "event seat." A bit of a misnomer as it's for storage rather than people.

Aeronautical-inspired air vents are a decidedly retro design element.
