Former racing driver turned TV presenter Tiff Needell got behind the wheel of 007's new Aston Martin Vanquish in 2002 ahead of the release of 'Die Another Day.' As the segment notes, it had been 15 years since James Bond was seen on screen with a new Aston Martin and, this time, he would be up against a new Jaguar XKR with even more firepower.

5th Gear went behind the scenes of the real life Q-Branch, EON Productions' visual effects team, to look at how the props were created for on-screen action and not CGI. The show was originally broadcast in the UK on 14th October 2002.


Skip to 7:30 for the start of the Bond segment.
