Shaken, Stirred, and full of Boost. The most iconic James Bond car of all time is coming to Rocket League for a limited time and we can't wait to try it out! Here's everything you need to know about the Aston Martin DB5 Bundle and how much it will cost.

When Does The Aston Martin DB5 Arrive?

James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 is racing into Rocket League's in-game Store on July 29th! There's no word on a specific time, but if you can't find it when you log in earlier in the day it should show up following the in-game store refresh at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST.

It's only going to be available for a limited time, but Psyonix hasn't shared how long this will be. If we look at how Epic Games does things... It could be only available for the weekend. We're expecting the Aston Martin DB5 Car Bundle to leave Rocket League's in-game store on August 1st.

What's In The James Bond Car Bundle?

The Aston Martin DB5 Car Bundle doesn't actually come with a lot other than the Aston Martin DB5; We guess James Bond doesn't like messing with his car too much.

The contents are as follows:

  • 007's Aston Martin DB5 - with iconic Silver Birch Paint Finish;
  • 007's Aston Martin DB5 Wheels
  • Reel Life Car Decal

The Aston Martin DB5 has the same hitbox as the Octane, one of the smaller cars in Rocket League, and features a unique "one-of-a-kind" Engine Audio. It will set you back 1100 Credits.

Where Have I Seen That Car Before?

When we said that the Aston Martin DB5 was the most famous James Bond car, we weren't kidding you. The DB5 has appeared alongside the world's most famous British agent in eight of his twenty-five films.

  • Thunderball - 1965
  • GoldenEye - 1995
  • Tomorrow Never Dies - 1997

  • Skyfall - 2012

  • NoTime To Die - 2021

Rocket League has confirmed that Q is dusting off another car or two from MI6's garage in the future and that HAS to mean that Die Another Day's 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish is on the way... Right?
