Watch 007’s new Aston Martin jump, drift, and barbecue baddies in latest trailer

23 July, 2015


Few movie relationships have lasted as long as the one between James Bond as his trusted Aston Martin. And for the latest iteration of the franchise, Spectre, Bond utilizes a gorgeous fire-spitting, sideways-sliding, show-jumping Aston Martin DB10. Check it all out in the hot-off-the-press film trailer below:

First unveiled at the film’s press launch late last year in London, the DB10 is a one-off edition made specifically for the film franchise. This is a shame, because it stands as one of the prettiest cars to adorn the famous Aston Martin badge in quite some time. But don’t get too sad; Aston Martin have stated that elements of the DB10 give us “a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins”.

While details on the car are thin on the ground, we can probably assume that the rear-mounted flame-thrower will not make it to any production versions …

Travelling companion

It’s easy to see why the Morris Minor Traveller was one of the best-loved variants of the Morris Minor. Introduced in 1953, it was equipped with the same independent torsion bar front suspension, drum brakes, and rack and pinion steering as its saloon sibling but, with their foldable rear seat increasing versatility, many Travellers were used as trade vehicles, says Derek Goddard. Derek and Gail Goddard, the owners of this superbly restored example, have run Morris Minors since before they were married in 1974.
“Our honeymoon vehicle was a blue Morris Minor van — it was a rust bucket,” says Derek.

Super Leicht Gullwing

It’s fair to say that nothing much in the classic Mercedes world gets past Mercedes-Benz Club stalwart Garry Boyce so it wasn’t surprising to learn that around 15 years ago he had sniffed out an extremely rare 300SL lightweight Gullwing as well as a 1958 300SL Roadster hiding away in the Waikato. The cars were not for sale but Garry eventually managed to persuade the owner to allow him and his restoration team to take a look at the Roadster. They discovered a very distressed but largely unmolested car. The car was so original that the body had never been off the chassis, meaning most of the parts and fittings were still present and correct, as they had been fitted by the factory.
