Prototypes will lock horns on unusually empty streets of Rome in new 007 film

MI6 operatives have to drive unique supercars. Don’t ask us why — that’s just how espionage works these days. Preferably Aston Martins, to keep a low profile while on assignment and to support the local industry. Because who would ever notice a heretofore unknown model of Aston Martin parked on the street?

The Aston Martin DB10 will do more than just sit idly by while 007 calmly and methodocially investigates assigned cases, Sherlock Holmes style . The exclusive supercar will do battle with an equally low-key machine in the upcoming Bond caper “Spectre”: the Jaguar C-X75. Bond villains have a robust and well-funded acquisition program so they all receive unique supercars as well, instead of something like an armored Ford Mondeo with a stealthily upgraded engine.

“The luxury British sports-car brand is delighted to confirm that James Bond will once again drive an Aston Martin in ‘Spectre,’” the company announced in a written statement. “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.”
