Aston Martin DB10 vs Jaguar C-X75 in Rome

The early hours of Friday saw some of Rome’s main thoroughfare’s off limits to regular traffic as the team behind SPECTRE continued to work on a car chase between James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75, driven by Mr Hinx.

After the disappointing car chase at the start of Quantum of Solace this a sequence I’m very much looking forward to.

How do you think SPECTRE is shaping up? Leave a comment below to let me know.

MI6 Confidential #29 – ‘SPECTRE’ First Look

cover

Ask anyone with a passing interest in Bond and they’ll recall the terrorist organisation SPECTRE pulling the strings on some of 007’s most dangerous missions; but not because they have been a regular fixture of recent times.

However, the organisation will be back (and just possibly its ubiquitous leader, Blofeld) in the 24th screen adventure. This issue pays tribute to the legacy that went before it. Packed with trivia, and historical data, we recount the rise of Blofeld from the germ of an idea from author Ian Fleming and producer Kevin McClory to his most recent filmic appearance in For Your Eyes Only.

MI6 Confidential alsos explore the little-told history of Roger Moore’s seventh and final outing, A View To A Kill – celebrating its 30th anniversary by catching up with several of the film’s alumni.

Night shoot on the streets of Rome [video]


Last night saw the Aston Martin DB10 in action on the streets of Rome, with roads used for filming closed to the public between 9 pm and 6 am this morning. The video above shows some of the preparations prior to filming commencing, plus a look at a DB10 with camera and lighting gear attached.

High speed ‘SPECTRE’ car chase in Rome disrupted by poor roads

Aston Martin DB10

Filming of a high speed car chase through the streets of Rome was reportedly disrupted at the weekend thanks to Rome’s cobblestones and potholes. Speeds were limited to just 70 km/h despite the producers paying for the roads used in the shoot be repaired, resulting in less than satisfactory results for the filmmakers.

The SPECTRE shoot in Rome does seem to be beset by problems, with permission to shoot at two planned locations not given or withdrawn, graffiti covering another and a general dissatisfaction at the disruption caused to the city, despite it bringing in an estimated €600,000 and the boost in tourism likely to result from its appearance in the next Bond film (not that it needs it).

At least three Aston Martin DB10s have been seen on location, with the shoot scheduled to last until early March.
