James Bond films always bring nouveau cars to the screen. The secret was already out that a the DB5 and mid-engined Valhalla would be featured, while the V8 Vantage was added to the mix more recently. But the latest edition is the real star of the show: the 5.2-litre twin-turbo, V12-engined DBS Superleggera is also taking a starring role, the latest in a long line of Aston Martins that have served James Bond as his only trusted companion over the course of decades’ worth of secret agent work.
But so far, there’s still a catch: this Aston Martin might not be the specific wheel that James Bond gets behind. Word on the streets is that his enemies also have a taste for sports engines, and might be the ones driving this incredible vehicle this time. Although, knowing Bond, he’ll finnagle it out of their hands before the end of the show.
The old tradition of picking and choosing favorite Bond vehicles will no doubt get revved up after the release of this film, so we’re all excited to see how the Superleggera is left in the rankings.
