Included in this latest collection are the Aston Martin DB5 stunt replica with damage and bullet hits, the original Aston Martin V8, a Land Rover Series III, a Defender 110 with “continuity damage” from a Norway sequence, a Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE bike and a Royal Alloy GT1215 scooter.
“The action vehicles team consisted of approximately 20 technicians working in conjunction with numerous engineers from Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover,” said Special Effects and Action Vehicles Supervisor, Chris Corbould.
“Initial talks with Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover commenced in October 2018, and many detailed conversations were held to discuss the film’s requirements. Aston Martin built eight bespoke DB5’s along with an extensive spares package capable of completing the rapidly evolving action sequence in Matera. They also supplied three Aston Martin V8’s as used in The Living Daylights and two of the latest DBS Superleggera.”
“I think the audience will be thrilled to see the DB5 in full battle mode driving at speed through the streets of historic Matera in Italy. As the city is built on the side of a hillside, the balconies, roofs and gardens created a natural amphitheatre, and the public clapped and applauded whenever the iconic Bond car was in action,” added Corbould.
‘No Time To Die’ is scheduled to arrive in theaters on April 8, 2020, featuring Rami Malek, Christoph Waltz, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright and of course Daniel Craig as 007. You can check out the first official trailer here.
