Di­rec­tor’s touch seen in this new Bond

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE lux­ury Bri­tish sports car brand is de­lighted to con­firm that James Bond will once again drive an As­ton Martin in Spec­tre. On this oc­ca­sion, it will be a model de­vel­oped specif­i­cally for the film and built in-house by the brand’s de­sign and en­gi­neer­ing teams.

Led by As­ton Martin chief cre­ative of­fi­cer, Marek Re­ich­man, the de­sign team worked closely with the film’s di­rec­tor, Sam Men­des, to cre­ate the ul­ti­mate car for the world’s most fa­mous spy.

Cel­e­brat­ing the great Bri­tish brand’s half cen­tury with Bond, which started with the iconic DB5, the DB10 gives a glimpse to the fu­ture de­sign di­rec­tion for the next gen­er­a­tion of As­ton Martins.

Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of As­ton Martin, 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.

“To be part­ner­ing once again with EON Pro­duc­tions is great news for this company and for ev­ery­one around the world who loves to see Bond at the wheel of an As­ton Martin.

“I’m in­cred­i­bly proud of ev­ery­one in the team at Gay­don who have brought this spe­cial project from con­cept to re­al­ity.”

Pro­duc­tion will be strictly limited to 10 of the be­spoke sports cars, de­vel­oped and built by the de­sign­ers, en­gi­neers and highly skilled crafts­peo­ple at the company’s head­quar­ters in Gay­don, War­wick­shire. And even the lucky few who can af­ford to put an As­ton Martin on their Christ­mas wish­list will have to keep wait­ing for quite a while longer – the Spec­tre is due to go on gen­eral re­lease on Novem­ber 6, 2015.
