Let Bond pinch a car and do without an Aston for a change.

Like the Jag he pinched in SF?

Or the Ford Mondeo in CR?

Or the Volvo in QOS?

Or the Range Rover in QOS?

Or the Ford Edge in QOS?

Or the Mercedes in Skyfall?

I believe they were provided to him by MI6 or mere rentals.

The name is Walker by the way.

Yes, they were. Where did I say otherwise? I'm just listing the times he "did without an Aston for a change"...

Just thought so bc post 74 and the following were about letting Bond „pinch a car“.

The name is Walker by the way.

Wasn't the V8 Vantage owned by the head of Aston Martin at that time and was lent to film?
Probably mis-remembering and it's probably changed hands since '87 but still, super cool to see it again.

The 80s DB5 IMO

I have a YouTube channel on all things Bond (amongst other things, coming soon™).
The name's Bond and Beyond. It's currently on hold, though.

The Volante was (the convertible Tim drives earlier in the film), the ‘Vantage’s he drives later in Bratislava were three or four second hand cars that Eon had bought and converted to match the Volante.
I believe Eon still owned one of these Daylights cars, but whether it’s being used for B25 I don’t know. This car is missing the sunroof which the Daylights cars had.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Bond 25 will see 007 use the DB5, the V8 Vantage and the new £1.5M Aston Martin Valhalla! (To be confirmed this week...)

I love the Vantage returning. I like the Valhalla as it reminds of Bond in the Esprit but the thought of Bond driving three different Astons in one film is a turn off for me I'm afraid.

The Sun also has a photo they say is of the AM Valhalla on the B25 set  ajb007/bond

They did take the opportunity to throw in some of the usual negative hyperbole:
"The film was massively delayed after leading man Craig seriously injured his ankle while filming in Jamaica".

I'm sure Craig's injury set the production time schedule back a bit but I would imagine they take those sort of things into consideration in planning.
They also appear to have continued to shoot around Craig in the meantime, mitigating the time loss a bit.
It is nice to see Craig up and about and apparently very pleased with 007's newest toy...er piece of field equipment. ajb007/martini

Too bad they won't have him drive the DB10 again. They could do a joke like Moore did about getting the Lotus back together.
