The James Bond franchise has been associated with many ravishing elements – but one of the most anticipated stars of each film is the pulse-pounding and gadget-heavy Bond car.
Aston Martin and James Bond have gone hand-in-hand ever since Sean Connery was seen driving the sexy and spectacular DB5 in 1964’s Goldfinger.
And for Spectre, the luxury car brand decided to cook something that could only be found in imaginations; the built-from-the-ground-up Aston Martin DB10.
On this week’s podcast episode of The ET Canada Throwdown, Rick Campanelli and Jeremy Singer interview Aston Martin’s chief creative designer, Marek Reichman – who spearheaded the creation of the DB10 for Spectre. How special is Bond’s new car? It’ll mark the first time that a Bond film has a car created solely for the movie’s production – without a public release (basically you can drive it in your dreams).
“None of the cars have ever been designed specifically for James Bond, just for the movie,”; says Reichman. “It really shows the power of James Bond.”;
Listen as Reichman talks about how the supercar request came about from director Sam Mendes, what Daniel Craig’s driving skills are like, what tricked out gadgets the DB10 has at its disposal and so much more.
