Even Bond, James Bond, switches to the electric car. He, who had first driven a car from his cell phone, now adapts to the times and in the next film in the saga, Daniel Craig will drive an Aston Martin Rapid E.
My name is Bond, James Bond, and I also drive an electric car. It is not a commercial for the car of the future, but the news that in the next 007 movie, Daniel Craig will get behind the wheel of a 100% electric Aston Martin. British newspapers report this, pointing out that the next 007 film, the 25th in the series, thus seems to have made the first concession to climate change.
Daniel Craig will be behind the wheel of a £250,000 Aston Martin Rapid E, one of only 150 zero-emission examples made by the British manufacturer.
The decision, media reports point out, was made at the behest of director Cary Joji Fukunaga, who has a strong ecological conscience. “Everyone is afraid,” reads the Sun online, “that Bond will be labeled as too ‘politically correct,’ but both Daniel Craig and director Cary Joji Fukunaga and the producers, felt the time was ripe to move to a zero-emission car.
Filming of the new James Bond film, tentatively titled Shatterhand, will begin next month after a long delay. The car, we also read in the which reports an unspecified source, “Will be the focus of an incredible action sequence in the film. James Bond is known for driving fun cars and this one will not disappoint.”
With 610 hp of maximum power and 950 Nm of engine torque, the Aston Martin Rapid E has nothing to envy in performance compared to gasoline models, ensuring scorching acceleration and a top speed of 250 km/h.
Bond won’t have to stop 40′ at a charging station anyway….
