James Bond New Aston Martin DBS

Aston Martin announced that in the next 007 film, “CASINO ROYALE” that is due to be released in November 2006 by MGM/Sony, James Bond will drive one of their supercars.

Daniel Craig, who will play James Bond in the film, will be the lucky “chump” driving the high tech DBS model. The model is assumed to be a super fast edition based on the V8 Vantage. The name DBS is not new to Aston as the British company produced a homonym model in the late 60’s (1967 to 1972)

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.”

The association of James Bond with the marque began in 1964 with the film “Goldfinger” when the DB5 was fitted with “optional extras” such as ejector seats and rockets. The last Bond film, “Die Another Day”, featured Aston Martin’s flagship model, the Vanquish.
