James Bond eyeing up his new motor Image Source: Spectre Official Website
Spectre is released on DVD this week, and with Daniel Craig’s fourth outing in the Bond franchise being another slick showcase of automobile excellence, we started to wonder what a classified car ad would look like if his 007 had to sell up.
We know what you’re thinking: in all 26 films, Bond’s car collection has never made old chassis’ and he’s gone through more motors than he has Martinis. But let’s pretend for a minute that all those perfectly put together and polished beauties returned from Bond’s adventures as they started; no shattered glass, no bullet holes and no write-offs. So let’s advertise Craig’s cars so far as honestly as we can…
Description: Stunning silver coupe and 1 of only 10 hand-built in the UK. 191 mph. Handles beautifully at cruising or top speed. Full leather interior. One-piece clamshell bonnet. Proportionately between the existing Vantage and DB9. Mercedes-AMG engine. One careful owner (government employee).
Optional extras included: Ejector seat (with parachute), rear flamethrowers and rear machine gun (ammunition not included).
*Complete water/impact damage whilst in Italy.
Description: Sleek gunmetal grey GT. Carbon fibre, leather, wood, stainless steel and aluminium interior surfaces. Lightweight which compliments handling and performance. DBS signature hand-stitched into front head restraints. Aston Martin engine. ADS (Adaptive Damping System) adjusts suspension to driver requirements. Used occasionally for pursuit of undesirables.
Optional extras included: Spare handgun (Walther PPK) and portable defibrillator.
