With the expansion to Fairway 4 of the Royal Zoute Golf Club, new ticket packages, special attention for the BMW 507 and Mercedes 300SL, both of which are celebrating birthdays, and a tribute to Ferrari at 70 years young, 2017 is set to be an exceptional edition of the ZOUTE CONCOURS D’ÉLÉGANCE® by Bank Degroof Petercam. Especially now that the ultimate Bond car – the original 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from ‘Goldfinger’ – is coming to Le Zoute.
Classic with 007 class
Many feel that ‘Goldfinger’ is the best Bond film of all time. Due in no small part to gentleman secret agent Sean Connery and his streamlined luxury silver GT: the 1964 Aston Martin DB5, the archetypal 007 car and an absolute dream to drive. Exceptionally, you will soon be able to see this elegant classic at the ZOUTE CONCOURS D’ÉLÉGANCE® by Bank Degroof Petercam.
Packed with technical gadgets
Its sparkling bodywork makes the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 a timeless style icon. But the interior is also very appealing. The ultimate Bond car is packed with characteristic Q gadgets: two Browning machine guns behind the indicators at the front, hydraulic overriders for use as a battering ram, a rotating number plate with British, Swiss and French registrations, a device to create a smoke screen and many more extraordinary 007 gizmos. It’s all onboard, including the ejector seat and removable roof panel to get rid of undesirable passengers!
Even more (birthday) stars
At the ZOUTE CONCOURS D’ÉLÉGANCE® by Bank Degroof Petercam the iconic star of ‘Goldfinger’ will be given a place of honour among more than 50 other exceptional pre- and post-war classics, including the BMW 507 and Mercedes 300SL, two cars that have just turned 60, and Ferrari is celebrating its 70th birthday. But James Bond’s favourite toy will without doubt be one of the eye-catchers at what will be the best edition yet. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 has been very generously loaned out by the famous Louwman museum of cars in The Hague, Netherlands, where it forms part of one of the oldest private collections of classic cars in the world.
