"I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually," says Sam Mendes. "So it's a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world."

"It's amazing. It's one of those scenes that's going to be very iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome - I mean, how often do you see that? It's one of those things you only see in a James Bond film." - Dave Bautista

"We've got our hero Aston Martins, they're just pristine, they show their beauty. Then we've got stunt Aston Martins which are fully roll-caged up. Stunt drivers have been putting them through their paces." - Chris Corbould
