While Agent 007 will hop behind the wheel of any vehicle to get away tux intact (Ford Mondeo, Bulldozer), there’s only one brand he calls upon when the ladies are looking, and that’s Aston Martin. The Aston Bond will be driving in the upcoming movie Casino Royale will be this cover car called the DBS. Apparently based on the V12 Vanquish, the DBS features a new front fascia and hood most likely fitted with multiple anti-bad guy devices. No word on any other weapons Q has fitted to the DBS, but we expect its arsenal to make the Aston the real star of the film.

Thanks Richard for blowing this car’s cover!

      This is what happens when an American company (Ford) owns Aston Martin...they take a classic body and ugly it up with "pimp my ride" like plastic and crap....

      "yo Mikey you want me to unpimps this thing let me hear you say wvat?"

      Looks like this car was done by Michael Jackson's personal plastic surgeon. It is what happened to the classic muscle American Camero z28 that went ugly with excessive plastics and lines before it got pulled out of the market. Please don't ever try to Michael Jacksonize any Aston Martin!!

      Re Ryan and Dman,
      CAR can be hard to come by and if you think $80/year is a lot, look at the cover price and multiply by 12.
      When I was getting CAR by mail, back in the late '70s, the mags came in a very heavy paper envelope. I NEVER had a damaged issue but I'm not sure they are mailed that way anymore. Here in Tennessee, with our outrageous 10% sales tax, an issue bought on the newstand can cost you over $10, needless to say, I rarely buy it anymore. (GREAT photography though.)

      Looks like they just stuck the front of a DB9 on a Vantage coupe and added some extra vents. I was hoping for more. I remember reading an article interviewing Daniel Craig, the new Bond, where he said that Bond isn't going to have many gadgets, which probably means the DBS won't be stocked full of missiles and stuff.

      what is my 1996 bmw z3 bond edition (1 out of 100) worth? in very good condition- looks brand new with 60,000 miles.

      I don't like the hood, it' giving this luxury car too much of an American muscle look.
      • 9 Years Ago
      I like it, although I have to agree the hood could be a little less exaggerated. The front spoiler looks nicely aggressive, though.

      Is this where all Pontiac's plastic cladding went? Where are the smooth lines and surfaces that make all other Aston Martin's sexy?
      • 9 Years Ago
      I'd have to agree with Chris, I love Aston Martins, but the lines of that car are very busy... It's a more sporty than luxury feel.

      ive gotta disagree with most of you guys because i love it. in that picture i think it looks bland, but in 'top gear' magazine its shows WAY better views, the interior is fine ans the back is completely different. p.s. its a hot db9 not a vanquish, placed just below the dbr9 and above the db9
