Meet the New Bond Car: The Aston Martin DBS

According to the lads at Motor Torque, the newest entry to the Bond stable will be the Aston Martin DBS &mdash the last car added to the Bond stable. Aston Martin is understandably delighted to continue its association with the film series (especially since Casino Royale wasn't a melange of bad writing, unnecessary tech and weak plot lines). According to Aston CEO Dr. Bez: "Aston Martin is Proud of our long association with James Bond. The DBS has its own unique character which equals that of James Bond. It is explosive power in a black tie."


We liked the DBS as the last Bond ride, and especially appreciated the seven cannon rolls it did at the end (spoiler alert). With Ford no longer running the show at Aston, we wonder if Bond will also be driving a Mondeo. [MotorTorque]



@NcSchu: Am I in the minority? I actually liked Die Another Day... yes the story was full of holes, and Madonnas appearance was a waste of film (as was the title song), but come on, the hovercraft scene, the Jag chases Aston on ice, Halley Barry in a Bikini? All killer moments!
