A new trailer for the upcoming James Bond flick Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig gives us a few quick glimpses of the Aston Martin DBRS 9 that 007 will be driving in the film. While footage of the unique DBRS 9 in the trailer is limited to about 2 or 3 seconds, we're sure the car will see much more screen time in the actual film. After the film fades from the big screen, however, a few lucky owners will still be able to open their garage doors and take the production version of Bond's DBRS 9 for a spin. That car is reported to have an uprated 500-hp V12, race-car inspired lowered suspension and wider track. Until then, check out the trailer and try not to cringe when Craig rolls the car.

      i just noticed, as i keep watching it to look for a way the roll somehow could have happened, is Craig getting in on the LEFT side of the Aston? that's weird...

      Daniel Craig does not look like a bond good guy, he looks like one of the evil characters.

      Purecoda@post#5- Not to be derogatory , but you obviously don't know the capability of the car, the potential for this auto's handling by a professional, or, for that matter, that a "driver" is not someone who sits behind the wheel of street driven vehicles. This is not your fault, but a little insight derived from a few visits to sites dedicated to racing information might be helpfull. I am retired now, but spent many laps behind the wheel in some very fast cars. I certainly was not the best, but I did rub wheels, and on occasion beat those who are remembered to be so.

      Daniel Craig squats to pee. The stupid wuss complained that the car was a stick (he doesn't know how to drive a manual).

      You can also pick up girls with other, attractive girls. True story.

      Anyways, I'm very excited for the film, but NOT excited for Daniel Craig's "short shorts" bathing suit scene. Leave that for Ursula Andress.

      An Aston Martin should not be crashed for such an unattractive woman.

      And so we now know that Casino Royale is a film about a poker game, a film that incorporates a fad. Sounds lame...

      I am excited in seeing Craig as Bond as well.

      If you questions the man's ability to act, watch Layer Cake. Awesome movie..

      #1 Sucks horribly that Brosnan is not playing Bond in this one. I thought he was really good in the other Bond movies he did. But maybe I'll change my mind when I see this one.

      #2 Unless DBRS9 is some kind of piece of shit, it would not roll like that in any century, he would just spin out by turning the wheel that hard. Unless he hit some uneven surface (which from the careful looks of it, he did not) there is not a chance in hell the car would flip up onto its side and roll like that. And it bothers me that Hollywood would depict something like that on film because it spreads false information to the public out there.

      I know for one, I beat the shit of BMWs at the BMW Performance Center last month in Greenville South Carolina and during the emergency lane change where at 60MPH you throw the wheel to the left as hard and as fast as you possibly can, all I did was spin out with the DTC off and stayed in control with the DTC on.

      Snyder - do some research. Craig is a Brit. He grew up driving manuals. In an Esquire interview they asked about driving manuals and he laughed, offering to take them for a spin. The MEDIA made that story up. It's totally false.

      BTW, Astons currently come armed with F1/DSG/SMG style trannies, not many come with standard manuals anymore.

      Pierce Brosnan was hot, and had a classy attitude.
      Daniel Craig is not. Craig is just a tough, battle worn guy.

      Daniel Craig doesn't have the looks of a sterotype "good guy"... I couldn't tell who was the good guy in the trailer, they both look just as evil as each other!

      As for the car flipping, probably wouldn't happen. We saw that video of the green Aston Martin racing earlier, and it flew sideways for a long distance off the track, with no flipping.
