James Bond 25 filming is underway in Jamaica at the moment and there is much speculation about what will happen in the movie. Rumours and speculation are whirring to find out what the plot will be or to get any glimpses of what is happening on set. Earlier this year, Daniel Craig, who returns as the British spy for the final time, was spotted driving a classic Land Rover on the set of the film. This is believed to be the car 007 uses during his ‘retirement’ in the Caribbean country.
Much speculation for the official Bond car has been a hot topic of debate since the film was first announced with many initially assuming it would be a new bespoke Aston Martin or even the iconic DB5.
The rumour which gained the most traction was that Bond would be getting behind the wheel of the all-new Aston Martin Rapide E which is a fully electric sports car.
However, two new Aston Martin cars have been spotted on the set of the film and they aren’t what you’d think at all.
The first was a classic V8 Vantage, previously used by Timothy Dalton in the Living Daylights.
A video uploaded on June 6th, 2019 shows the classic Aston driving along a bridge in Norway. This vehicle may stir up some nostalgia with fans of the franchise around for the Dalton era.
The classic car is packed full of gadgets too including wheel hub-mounted lasers, missiles, bulletproof glass, port, and outrigger skis.
However, The Sun reports that the brand-new Aston MartinValhalla has been spotted on set. The £1.5million car, which is in collaboration with Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin was allegedly delivered to the set.
The vehicle is a gorgeous 200mph hybrid hypercar which will certainly provide enough power for the spy.
The film is slated for release in April 2020 and Remi Malek is se tot be the main protagonist of the flick.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, responsible for writing Killing Eve and Fleabag, was recruited as one of the writers for the spy film.
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer said: “Aston Martin model names always attract a lot of attention.
“They do so because they invariably capture an emotion or tell a story.
“In following the Valkyrie we knew the Aston Martin Valhalla needed to make a strong statement of its own, yet also offer continuity and a clear connection.
“Norse mythology contains such powerful language and rich storytelling it felt only right that the AM-RB 003 should follow the Valkyrie’s theme.
“For those fortunate enough to own one I’m sure they will recognise and appreciate the name’s connotations of glory and happiness, for there can be few more hallowed places than the driver’s seat of an Aston Martin Valhalla.
