Aston Martin: Bond's car of choice

James Bond is due to be reunited with the Aston Martin marque in the next 007 movie.

Daniel Craig, who will star as Bond in Casino Royale, will be seen in a new Aston Martin DBS car when the film comes out later this year.

Craig visited Aston Martin's headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire last week, where he met company chiefs and some of the workforce and took a short test drive in the new car.

Aston Martin chairman Dr Ulrich Bez said: "It is great news that Bond will drive an Aston Martin again and we have built him something special to enable him to do his job in style."

Full details of the Bond car will be released at a later date.

Aston Martin first featured in a 007 film in 1964 when Sean Connery as Bond drove a DB5 in Goldfinger.

The last Bond film, Die Another Day, featured Aston Martin's flagship model, the Vanquish.

Filming of Casino Royale is due to start later this month.

The weird thing is that recent Aston Martin cars look the same yet we drool over them and don't care because of the sexiness.

So, here's the press release for y'all to read when you're done staring in awe...

Aston Martin has unveiled the new DBS which will be driven by James Bond, the legendary British secret agent, in the next 007 film, “CASINO ROYALE”, to be produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for EON Productions.

In true Bond style, specific details of the new DBS remain top secret, although Aston Martin Design Director, Marek Reichman, said: “This car encapsulates a link between our elegant DB9 road car and the powerful DBR9 race car. It signals an evolutionary development of Aston Martin’s world renowned style and elegance.

“While hinting at our future design direction, the DBS also has very clear links with our heritage – it is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.”

Aston Martin Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez added: “The DBS continues our proud and lengthy association with James Bond.

“The DBS is not of the understated elegance of a DB9, nor the youthful agility of the V8 Vantage. It is explosive power in a black tie and has its own unique character which will equal that of James Bond.”

Starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, “CASINO ROYALE” is scheduled for release in November, 2006.

It hurts to look at this car. It's too beautiful.



I don't think I've come close to being THIS obsessed with anything other than robots. Aston Martin, I hate you.
