What do you think will be included in the Aston Martin's gadgets? In the tailer, 007 mentions making it invisible--perhaps with metamaterials? Also I'm sure it will be fully connected, smart enough to execute directions verbally and more. I will see a preview of the movie before it goes public in November, so stay tuned and I'll describe all the smart, connected and probably lethal gadgets "Q Branch" adds on. What do you think "Q" has up his sleeve gadget-wise for the one-of-a-kind Aston Martin DB-10?

Maybe, in the near future we will see the first Bond movie without James Bond, only a car against the bad guys (with a bad childhood) of the world. ;-)

Yes, probably a Google Car vs. an Apple Car, with the viewer left to determine who is the bad guy and who is the good one!

James Bond Movie Advances Automotive State-of-the-Art

The new James Bond--007--movie Spectre has advanced the state-of-the-art with two smart, connected supercars never before seen on the screen. Bond will be driving a one-of-a-kind 430 bhp Aston Martin DB-10 that looks like it was designed by aliens. The bad guy will be driving an equally "looks like it landed from space" Jaguar C-X75 concept supercar wth 850 bhp. With the horsepower advantage going to the bad guy, 007 will depend on the gadgets installed by "Q" to win the car chase, many of which will be electronic--like invisibility using metamaterials!

Imagine, James Bond 007 a Putin lookalike.  Sinister?

Isn't Aston Martin and Jaguar owned by the same company?  That's what you call a corporate win-win.  A Camaro vs. Corvette wouldn't work.

cookiejar: you're warm. Aston Martin and Jaguar used to both be owned by Ford, but alas Ford sold 92 percent of its stock to a consortium of Britich investors, and likewise Ford sold Jaguar to Tata Motors (India). Both big mistakes in my book, but in the 2007-2008 time frame I guess it made sense to Ford stockholders. Thanks for the comment, especially the funny part :)
