007 will drive an electric Aston Martin car in the 25th James Bond adventure if the latest tabloid reports are to be believed.
According to reports, Bond will get behind the wheel of a £250,000 Aston Martin Rapide E. This is the motor manufacturer’s first electric vehicle and only 155 are being built.
“The decision was spearheaded by the film’s new director, who’s a total tree-hugger," claims an 'insider' for The Sun. “He is working directly with Aston Martin to get one of their electric cars ready for its big close-up. It’s going to be the centre of an incredible action sequence in the movie. James Bond is known for driving amazing cars and this one won’t disappoint either. It’s going to have all the high-tech gadgets. To be clear, this is something Cary pushed for and Daniel and the producers are going along with. Everybody is afraid of Bond getting labelled ‘too PC’ but they all felt the time was right to put him in a zero emission vehicle.”
