Official ‘Casino Royale’ Teaser Poster
The official Casino Royale website blog has been updated by ‘Yarborough.’ Coverage this time centers on Casino Royale‘s Aston Martin DBS.
Speaking about the new Aston, Daniel Craig said: ‘This is very special because it’s the new DBS which is somewhere between a DB9 and their new racing car which they’re going to race hopefully at Le Mans. So, technically, that means that it just goes very fast and it’s a beautiful car and it suits Bond perfectly.’
It was hard to miss the Aston doing a few rolls in the trailer for the newest Bond film. Stunt driver Adam Kirley said of the sequence: ‘Gary Powell decided to raise the ramp to just under two feet in the end. I came in at the 75, 80 miles an hour speed, hit it with the two left hand side wheels, anticipating it to roll very easily. But the car just literally took off in the air, levelled pretty much, and landed on all four wheels. Completely. No chance of rolling whatsoever because of the stability of the car.’
Eventually they decided upon a cannon. ‘The special effects guys had put a cannon in which sits just behind the driver’s seat. It has a cylinder that, as you press a button, releases a load of air which punches the cylinder into the road which then, in turn, turns the car over. And that’s how we ended up doing it in the end,’ says Kirley.
