Three of the Aston Martin’s provided for the film, estimated to be worth over £500,000 together, were wrecked during filming when they were ‘flipped on their roofs during shots for a high-speed Alpine chase’ at the Millbrook Vehicle Proving Ground in Bedford. According to a source from the film, ‘These are easily the most amazing James Bond cars yet. They look incredible and cost a fortune. Unfortunately we had to smash three to pieces … And in the style of 007, our stunt driver walked away without a scratch.’
