Profile

For the 20th James Bond film, Bond once again drives an Aston Martin. Not since The Living Daylights had the main Bond car been an Aston Martin.

Bond is introduced to the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish during the scene with Q in the underground station. Bond is impressed when Q demonstrates the cars adaptive camouflage feature; tiny cameras on all sides project the image they see onto a light emitting polymer skin on the opposite side, making the car almost invisible to the naked eye.

Later in the film in an exciting chase across the frozen wastes of Iceland, Bond and Zao battle it out in perhaps one of the best car chases seen in a Bond film. Armed with an array of other gadgets, missiles behind the front-grille, machine guns, spiked tyres and target-seeking shotguns, the Aston Martin V12 is a mammoth machine. When the Aston Martin is flipped over after being hit by mini-missiles from Zao's Jaguar XKR, Zao fires what he thinks is the final missile. However Bond manages to use the ejector seat in the Aston to right the car, just as the missile sails past.

The chase continues into Gustav Graves' flooding ice palace, where it appears Bond is beaten when he is trapped high above in the palace. Using another feature of the Jaguar, Zao activates a metal ramming device, in a hope to send Bond's Aston Martin flying into the lake below. However, Bond manages to activate the now restored adaptive camouflage, engage spikes in the Aston's tyres for more traction and drives up the wall, sending Zao driving straight into the lake below. §
