Here Are All the Aston Martins Confirmed for James Bond’s “No Time to Die”

What will Daniel Craig be driving (or blowing up)?

The next James Bond film, No Time to Die, doesn’t come out until April 2020, but we’ve been inundated with leaks and rumors for months already — from casting to Daniel Craig injuries to cars (and SUVs). Thankfully, Aston Martin is putting us out of our misery in the latter regard.

This week, the historic British marque revealed that four of its cars will appear in the 25th Bond movie: the DB5, V8 Vantage, DBS Superleggera and Aston Martin Valhalla.

To be fair, three out of the four vehicles were previously all but confirmed via various spy shots. For example, while the DB5 was no surprise (having been featured in many Bond films from 1964’s Goldfinger to 2012’s Skyfall) the V8 Vantage has only been seen before in 1987’s The Living Daylights, but was spotted filming a scene in Norway.

However, the V12 DBS Superleggera is a new revelation. As Car and Driver notes, “The number of cylinders in a DBS have doubled since its first feature in a James Bond film, which began all the way back to 1969 with On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and this will be the fourth time a DBS has been in the series.”

This is exciting news for Bond and Aston Martin fans alike, but there is one group that may be saddened by the announcement: electric vehicle disciples. It was previously reported (by an anonymous source) that No Time to Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga was working directly with Aston Martin to get the marque’s first all-electric car, the Rapide E, a spot in the film. From this tweet, the prospect doesn’t look promising.

On the other hand, Naomie Harris, the actor who plays Moneypenny, recently told British GQ that we can expect “massive, massive surprises” from the film. Cross your fingers that includes Bond in an EV.
