Aston Martin DBS to star in new James Bond film

Gaydon, England – Aston Martin has announced that its new flagship model, the DBS, will be driven again by James Bond in the next 007 film. The movie, with the working title “Bond 22”, will star Daniel Craig and be released in November 2008.

The DBS made its first public appearance in Casino Royale, which also earned it a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for “Most cannon rolls in a car”. Stunt driver Adam Kirley rolled the DBS seven times for the film.

“Aston Martin is proud of our long association with James Bond,” said Dr. Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin CEO. “The DBS has its own unique character which equals that of James Bond. It is explosive power in a black tie. It is the perfect car for James Bond, as it delivers the complete driving experience and bridges the gap between our road and track cars, the DB9 and DBR9. It is equally at home on a twisting mountain circuit as on the open road, and we are all very excited at the prospect of seeing it on the big screen again.”
