BY TEAM JST

Bond, James Bond, doesn’t do road trips like the rest of us. Life of a 007 agent jets on cool rides, and Aston Martin seems to always be his luxury choice.

Details of the 24th Bond film, which will be titled Spectre, was released last week. It’ll feature actors: Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci. In addition, we must not forget about Bond’s greatest companion of all: the car.

In earlier Bond stories, Ian Fleming always described the secret agent to be driving a Bentley with an Amherst Villiers supercharger. Then he moved onto a Mark II Continental Bentley in Moonraker. Since Goldfinger, Bond began to drive an Aston Martin DB Mark III, when he followed the villain all over France. In other novels, Bond frequently returned to Bentley.

In films, however, Bond switched from Aston Martin V8 Vantage in 1980s, the V12 Vanquish, Esprit; BMW Z3, BMW 750iL, to BMW Z8 DBS during the 2000s. But he’s been most famously connected to Aston Martin DB5 which appeared in GoldfingerThunderballGoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale and Skyfall. In January 2006, an unnamed European collector bought the car at an auction for USD $2,090,000.

In the new film, Aston Martin DB10 which was designed specifically for Spectre, was a work of art between Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman and a team of engineers who worked closely with the film’s director Sam Mendes. Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer said,

In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond.

The company will only produce 10 of these sports cars and they’ll each be exclusively used for the movie for stunt filming. Check out the release of Spectre in November 2015.
