Watch James Bond In A High-Speed Car Chase In Newest Spectre Footage

Sam Mendes, Daniel Craig and the capable team behind Spectre have been pulling back the curtain on 007’s next adventure at regular intervals. We saw a trailer (which I’ll include below). We visited the film’s set in Mexico City, and reported back. And today, we get a new look at the amazing cars from the upcoming movie. Watch it now:

This video, shared on, goes in-depth on the automobiles James Bond (Daniel Craig) will use as he hops the globe in search of the SPECTRE baddies. There are eight Aston Martins being used in the production, according to the clip, and Mendes teases some incredible night-time chase scenes through the streets of Rome. It all builds to a race between Bond and Mr. Hinx, played by Guardians of the Galaxy bruiser Dave Bautista. Bond, naturally, is in his signature Aston. Hinx, meanwhile, is suited with a Jaguar that HAS to be custom-made if it’s going to fit around a dude the size of Drax. Mendes claims they are two of the world’s fastest automobiles, and they shut down the streets of the Italian city to take them for a high-speed test drive. They look fantastic in this footage.

Sam Mendes returns to the James Bond series after delivering the most successful (financially speaking) chapter in the ongoing 007 legacy, Skyfall. From all that we have been able to piece together, Spectre will build on story elements introduced in Skyfall, plunging even further into the dark and storied past of Daniel Craig’s version of the timeless spy. The movie stars Skyfall faces Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Ralph Fiennes. It also adds series newcomers Dave Bautista, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott and Christoph Waltz, in a mysterious role.

But a Bond movie isn’t a "Bond movie" without all of the high-tech bells and whistles, and its’ comforting to know that Sam Mendes is going out of his way to equip 007 with the fastest car available. Daniel Craig continues to mature into the role of James Bond, and the character work he brought to 007 in Skyfall sets the stage for some massive plot twists in this installment. Spectre reaches theaters on November 6. Are you interested to see what’s in store for Her Majesty’s Secret Servant?
