It is pure speculation and the rumour mill on full power from what i believe. apparently though it is being spoken about that the new Aston Martin rapide e may be the new car of choice for james bond in his next encounter with the naughty boys. If like me you like a bit of the old james bond the cars, the girls, the cars the girls the girls....and so on i'm not sure how this sits with me.
Dont get me wrong this is a classy motor. as a 4 door sedan kicking out 600 and odd bhp and a rapid 0-60. Ijust know how i would feel seeing bond in one. I mean with only a build of 155 suspected how many could he role??? 5 for him to practice in maybe ?? .sacrilege!
The moral of all this is obviously my love for the man and his antics, but also electric cars are going to be coming more and more into the spot light in years to come. on reflection look at a mere forty or so ago when jb was smoking around in his lotus esprit catching villains with his self detonate buttons and plenty of throaty grunt to this modern day of electricity and charging stations. im also not sure if i can see one chasing the fish at the bottom of the ocean like the lotus in "the spy who loved me"
the point i make how ever brief it is for now, look how far forward things have come in for james bond 007. what would" q " say about these progressions. then again the old boy probably had this thought of years ago...the old planet saver!! they wont have wheels next...how boring!!
we know by the way that saving the planet is a great thing...just incase you were thinking otherwise...as for "q" sorry "q" we were jesting about you to!.
Would it leave you" shaken or stirred"? .
