The fictional spy has driven an Aston Martin in 11 of the 26 of the Bond films
To celebrate Global James Bond Day, exactly seven -– maybe it should be 007 -– Aston Martins used in some of the fictional spy films will be placed around the streets of London on Friday.
“The connection between James Bond and Aston Martin reaches back through the decades so we are delighted to be supporting Global James Bond Day 2018,” Aston Martin vice president and chief marketing officer Simon Sproule said in a news release.
“London is the home of 007 and fans should be on the lookout for some of the most exciting cars used by James Bond this Friday.”
The cars were used in one of 11 films: Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), The Living Daylights (1971), GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Die Another Day (2002), Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).
Four cars -– a DB10, V8 Vantage, DB5 and DBS -– will be driving around central London near some major landmarks and Bond filming locations.
The Vanquish used in Die Another Day, complete with trunk-mounted guns, will be on display at Aston Martin Park Lane while the DBS from Quantum of Solace will be at the newly opened Aston Martin Works heritage showroom on Dover Street.
The DBS driven in Casino Royale will be parked outside the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum.
