Bond bosses smashed 12 new Aston Martins during Quantum Of Solace filmingOctober 11th, 2008 - 5:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 11 (ANI): Creators of the latest James Bond flick blew two million pounds after smashing 12 new Aston Martins during the filming of Quantum Of Solace.
The British luxury performance cars, which were donated for the Bond movie for the purpose of advertisements, were used to depict real-life crash scenes for the movie and are now beyond any use even for spares.
The DBS supercars that were thrown at mountains, riddled with bullets, and even ending up in Lake Garda were destroyed during the filming of Quantum Of Solace, starring Daniel Craig as the 007 agent.
I love it when Bond loses the drivers door of the Aston with every car that comes past him, every shot thats fired at him, the risk is so much greater, the Daily Star quoted second unit director Dan Bradley as saying.
Gary Powell, the stunt co-ordinator, said the motors were smashed to f***ing pieces and that when one DBS suffered more damage than intended, the producers simply ripped off a piece from a brand new car to continue shooting.
However, the one supercar that had its fate ending in Lake Garda still managed to fetch a whopping 200, 000 pounds when a fan decided to pay for its wrecks. (ANI)
