In December, we had A POST about how James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 was scheduled to be part of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

This week was the media and industry previews for the show, which opens to the public this weekend. We got a hurried shot during a presentation by Covisint, an information-technology company whose customers include automotive companies.

The Covisint presentation during the media preview including the soundtrack of Goldfinger playing, specifically the scene where James Bond (Sean Connery) is trying to get away from Goldfinger’s men but is unsuccessful.

UPDATE (Jan. 18): Videos have been uploaded to YouTube about the DB5 at the Detroit show, including this one from TrueCar Channel:

The Aston Martin DB5, most recently seen in Skyfall, is scheduled to be at the North American International Auto show next month during the event’s media preview. Here’s an excerpt from a press release:

Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR)
company, is bringing the world-famous 1964 James Bond car, an Aston Martin
DB5, to the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit,
January 14-18. The iconic vehicle co-starred with Sean Connery in the movie
Goldfinger and appears with Daniel Craig in Skyfall, the highest-grossing Bond
movie ever at $869 million to-date.

The DB5’s in-car phone and futuristic GPS mapping device made James Bond the
world’s first connected driver. The Covisint NAIAS exhibit will showcase the
future of vehicle connectivity, a major communications feature demanded by
consumers in vehicles for 2013 and beyond.
