The 'No Time To Die' production crew took one of the replica Aston Martin DB5's out for a spin around the Piazza San Pietro Caveos in Matera, Italy, earlier this week in anticipation of the car chase shoot that is due to start on location today, Sunday 25th August 2019.

Notices have been placed for local residents that roads may be closed as filming takes place between 7 am and 7 pm along the Roma-Via XX thoroughfare. For the scenes, some cars will come from the Piazza Vittorio Veneto - the main square of Matera - and head along Via XX Settembre. At the end of the chase, after a roundabout, the cars will go back on other roads.

Chasing the Aston Martin DB5 is expected to be the new 2020 Jaguar F-Type Coupe in electric blue.
