Gaydon, 16th January 2006 [Press Release]
Aston Martin announces James Bond, the legendary British secret
agent, will drive one of their models in the next 007 film, “CASINO
ROYALE” to be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara
Broccoli for Eon Productions.
Daniel Craig, who will play James Bond in the film, which is
due to be released in November 2006 by MGM/Sony, visited the Aston
Martin headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, on Friday to view
the featured car. While there he met Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez, and members of the workforce and also
took the opportunity to take a short test drive.
In the true tradition of Bond, full details of the car to be
used in “CASINO ROYALE” are being kept top secret
but the company did confirm that it would be a new model called
the Aston Martin DBS.

Dr Ulrich Bez said: “It is great news that Bond will drive
an Aston Martin again and we have built him something special
to enable him to do his job in style.”
The association with the marque began in 1964 with the film “Goldfinger”
when the DB5 was
fitted with “optional extras” such as ejector seats
and rockets. The last Bond film, “Die Another Day”,
featured Aston Martin’s flagship model, the Vanquish.
