The Chase presenter gushed over his hypercar as This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby admired the sleek motor. After leaving school at 16, Bradley Walsh got a job as an apprentice at Rolls-Royce’s aircraft engine factory in Watford, later progressing to being a technical engineer.
He stayed at Rolls-Royce for five years, and whilst at the factory, learnt how to build helicopter engines.
This spawned his love of engineering, with his long-term goal being to build a car.
The James Bond-inspired car was custom made for Walsh, who is a self-admitted Bond megafan.
The custom made six litre Aston Martin Vantare is a stripped back DB12, which has been put back together with a new body.
He said he plans to make 10 more of the custom made Vantares.
The car was first exhibited at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the summer and received “fantastic feedback”.
He said that there has been massive interest from the Middle East and North America.
He continued, saying: “To have one built is extraordinary.

“If it gets to the point, I would like to keep 007.”
Shockingly, Walsh admitted that he had never driven it.
Phillip Schofield compared Bradley Walsh’s car with the new No Time To Die DB12.
He joked, saying: “Yours doesn’t have guns which is a shame.
