An Aston Martin V8 Vantage II Series was recently spotted being driven during a car chase scene for the Bond 25 movie.
James Bond is known to drive all sorts of luxurious cars, with the most famous being the silver Aston Martin DB5 from the movie Goldfinger, which has made cameo appearances in newer films starring the likes of Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.
It appears that the producers of the upcoming movie are looking to take fans way back as a V8 Vantage II Series was spied by Norwegian news outlet Dagbladet being driven along Norway's Atlantic coast, with Toyota Land Cruisers and Range Rovers giving chase.
James Bond fans would probably recall the car from the 1970s and 1980s films starring Timothy Dalton, especially The Living Daylights from 1987. The Aston Martin being used even bore the same license - B549 WUU - plate as the Bond played by Dalton. This does suggest that the Vantage will appear in the upcoming Bond film, while there's also a rumor going around stating he's also set to get an all-electric version of the Rapide.
Craig has reprised his role as Bond for Bond 25, while Naomie Harris will play Eve Moneypenny. Ben Winshaw will play Q and Ralph Fiennes will return as M, as has been the case for the last few films from the franchise.
The movie is directed by Cari John Fukunaga, who directed HBO's True Detective and the Netflix series Maniac.
Bond 25 is understood to be very nostalgic, given that this film will be the 25th one released by the franchise. There isn't much else known apart from the cast, which will feature Ramie Malek from Mr. Robot as the antagonist.
Meanwhile, Aston Martin has paid tribute to its partnership with the franchise by launching an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera based on their sixth film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Bond 25 is set for release on April 8, 2020, in the US.
