There is nothing quite like a James Bond car chase and we can look forward to a spectacular chase sequence in the latest instalment of the spy thriller. Last week the city of Rome was treated to a car chase through the city streets with an Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75.
Neil Layton, the Action Vehicles Technical Coordinator for Spectre explained, “We have taken delivery now of 8 Aston Martins. These are bespoke, these have been specially built for this film.” It’s the 50th anniversary of Bond’s use of an Aston Martin which first started with Goldfinger when Sean Connery drove the iconic DB5 (pictured below). Aston Martin have stated that they are working closely with Director Sam Mendes in order to create “the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy”.
The video below shows some fantastic behind-the-scenes footage of what we can expect when 007 (Daniel Craig) clashes with Mr Hinx (Dave Bautista). Stunt Coordinator, Gary Powell, commented, “We have the Aston Martin which is obviously a classic design, smooth, fast car and then we have Hinx who’s a beast of a character in a beast of a car which is the Jaguar C-X75.”
Director Sam Mendes says: “I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually. So it’s a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world, neither of which you’ll have ever seen before.”
Producers have yet to reveal what gadgets the Aston Martin DB10 will be fitted with. The models exact specs are being kept under wraps as it is thought that the car is a “nod to future designs” and naturally Aston Martin want to keep the machine as far away as possible from the eyes of rival firms.
Information leaked from the production company points to the fact that unfortunately, one of the cars may end up in the Tiber, although this scene has not been shot yet.
Spectre hits cinemas on November 6, 2015.
