No Time To Die was finally released in cinemas this week with fans eager to see Daniel Craig in his final instalment as 007. The new blockbuster will have four Aston Martin’s making an appearance, containing a blend of the brand’s past, present and future.
The Aston Martin DB5 is almost as well-known as Bond himself.
It debuted in the 1964 classic Goldfinger and has since appeared in six other films, most recently in Spectre.
The supercar makes an explosive appearance in the trailer and comes equipped with all the gadgets needed to get Bond out of a predicament, especially with its newly built-in machine guns.
Another vintage Aston Martin makes an appearance in the film, with the V8 Saloon, similar to the one first seen in 1987’s The Living Daylights.
In its day, it was the fastest four-seat production car and Britain’s first true ‘supercar’.
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera also made a brief appearance in the trailer, being driven by Bond’s new colleague, Nomi, played by Lashana Lynch.
Its top speed of 211mph and 715 brake horsepower will be sure to excite fans when it flashes on screen.
The manufacturers’ future was displayed in the form of the sleek, £600,000 Valhalla hypercar, capable of going zero to 60 in just 2.5 seconds.

Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer and studio head at Aston Martin, spoke of the design process involved with making the supercars for the Bond films.
Speaking with Express.co.uk, he said: “It’s a massive positive for the brand to have the association with simply one of the coolest characters on the planet.
“My job is never work anyway, I love it and it brings out the young boy in me.
“It’s immensely fun and challenging because of the time involved, but the team takes great pride in seeing the cars they worked on, on screen.
