German TV Station RTL has published an article which is called "Bond's little Tricks". A lot of information from the official Website's early Production Report on the Car Workshop is given, but there are some nice pictures and a hot information.
In one sentence it is said;
Although the new Aston Martin looks very cool – but of course he can just shoot and swim in the film.
While we have heard and even seen the Machine Guns on Bond’s Aston Martin, we haven’t heard of Bond’s Car going swimming in ‘Die Another Day’.
Additionally 'RTL' published some photos; you can see Pierce Brosnan taking the V12 for a Walk.
