In which is one of the first serious Bond 21 news items, Aston Martin’s Design Director Henrik Fisker has revealed in an interview with PistonHeads.com that James Bond will drive the Aston Martin V8 Vantage in Bond 21.
Fisker also revealed another secret, the AMV8 Vantage will be the next James Bond car, adding “I hope this time they won’t cut it in half, that wasn’t very nice,” referring to the last James Bond car he designed, the Z8, which was cut in half by a huge saw in the movie The World is Not Enough.

Rumours saying that the Aston Martin DB9, which looks nearly the same as the V12 Bond drove in Die Another Day, proved to be untrue.
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage, however, is still in production and will feature on next year’s Detroit Motor Show. It will be out for sale in late summer 2005. James Bond will surely help to promote the car then.
