In case you didn’t know it already, this Friday 5th October is Global James Bond Day.
Yes, 007 fans will be donning their shiny suits and shades in a bid to pay homage to the world’s most iconic movie-star – James Bond.
Aston Martin Lagonda (AML) has teamed up with EON Productions and Sky to celebrate the event by launching a prize draw to win a wide screen television and Sky Q package.
There were eleven legendary Bond movies in which the most famous car on the planet was driven: Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), The Living Daylights (1971), GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Die Another Day (2002), Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).
Driving Through London
Throughout Friday October 5th, no less than four of the iconic Aston Martins from the 007 movies, the DB10, V8 Vantage, DB5 and DBS will be driving through central London passing major landmarks and James Bond film locations.
Your task, if you choose to accept it, is to grab a selfie with the Die Another Day (2002) Vanquish, complete with bonnet mounted guns at Aston Martin Park Lane or hop over to Aston Martin Works’ heritage showroom on Dover Street where you will find the battle-scarred Quantum of Solace (2008) DBS.
Visit the ‘Bond in Motion’ exhibition at the London Film Museum and see the DBS from Casino Royale (2006) parked outside. Inside is the largest official collection of original James Bond vehicles.
Aston Martin Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer, Simon Sproule said:
“The connection between James Bond and Aston Martin reaches back through the decades so we are delighted to be supporting Global James Bond Day 2018. London is the home of 007 and fans should be on the lookout for some of the most exciting cars used by James Bond this Friday 5th October.”
