Bond-ed And Insured: UK Company Pens Estimate For 007's Car Insurance

A UK car insurer pulled out the calculators over the weekend to come up with the price it'd expect to collect in premiums in order to ensure a quick replacement of 007's pretty new Aston Martin DBS in case anything should happen to the fictional character's car. And, after carrying the one and adding a zero somewhere, the folks at Kwik-Fit / Virgin Car Insurance came up with the princely sum of 7,108.50 ( approximately $13,478.39 in real American dollars) for protection on the roads. So that means whether the ride's being fliped over a damsel-in-distress or taking a missile up the arse, James Bond's "perfectly-formed" one will feel comfortable knowing he'll not have to pick up his paycheck from "M" with the price of a Brit sports car deducted from the bottom line. Now, if only the producers of the movie had known this going in — you know, before they totaled the DBS used in the movie (along with a few others) in a record-breaking seven-roll stunt. Check out the gallery below to see the Aston Martin's prettiness before it meets its more than likely end in the new movie.
