James Bond's Latest Unsubtle Ride Is The Aston Martin Valhalla (Probably)

Aston Martin has confirmed that the Valhalla hypercar will be in 'James Bond 25', along with a DB5 and a V8. Will the hypercar be 007's wheels of choice?

For a spy on her majesty’s secret service, James Bond doesn’t really go for subtle cars, does he? In the Daniel Craig run of the last 13 years, we’ve seen 007 go through a pair of DBS Astons, a gadget-festooned Goldfinger DB5 throwback and a DB10.

This does -we suppose - work, given the rather swanky environs in which Bond ends up going undercover. But his latest car might just draw a little too much attention even at the next ultra-posh casino the man next rocks up to. Why? Because it’s an Aston Martin Valhalla.

At least, we’re fairly certain it will be. Aston Martin has confirmed the car codenamed AM-RB003 will definitely be in ‘Bond 25’. It will will star alongside DB5 and a V8 like the one originally featured in 1987 007 flick The Living Daylights.

When asked, the company said it wasn’t able to confirm exactly what role the Valhalla will have, but it’s going to be James’ daily, surely?

We’ll find out for sure when the trailers start coming through, but as the film isn’t due to be released until 8 April 2020, we’ll be waiting for a little while. The 25th film in the franchise will see Craig return as 007 for a fifth outing, joined by Léa Seydoux, Rami Malek and Ralph Fiennes.
