As if being chosen to play the consummate British secret agent wasn't enough for Daniel Craig to brag about, the current 007 has been extended a free pass to drive Aston Martin's best cars any time he pleases. And he isn't limited to driving on the street. Aston has made its test track available to the faux agent. Craig must be quite the Ambassador to the brand to be granted such special privileges. Unfortunately, Mr. Bond seems to have no intentions of actually going out and purchasing one for himself, saying, "I could drive it faster and more furiously [on the track] than anywhere on the road. I live in London [and] it doesn't make any sense to drive an Aston Martin there. I've nowhere to park it." Yeah, we know how you feel, Daniel. That's the reason all of on the Autoblog staff don't own Astons too... nowhere to park.

      Damn! I should have gone for an audition! :P

      And has he learnt how to drive stick yet?
      • 6 Years Ago
      O.O

      Just curious though, what if he wrecks on the track? I would have to think they'd only give him so many freebies before they got pissed off.

      There’s an preview of Quantum of Solace in Baltimore at the Landmark Theater on November 12th (before the movie comes out). It’s a charity event to benefit Johns Hopkins. Go to www.baltimore.org/bond for the details and to get tickets.

      So I got the Golf instead.

      You know, it's funny. -I find myself in the exact same situations as Daniel Craig all the time.

      Hmm..I saw plenty of Aston Martins driving around London the summer I was there. And they never seemed to have any trouble finding a valet or a parking garage...

      So Unfair! :'(

      Im happy for him though, if he's do some track work its all good...

      Aston's association with the James Bond image does more than pay the bills.
