007 Movie Inspires Concept Cars

PORTLAND, Ore. — In the new James Bond movie Spectre, with actor Daniel Craig again playing 007, will feature an Aston Martin DB10 model designed especially for the movie—only 10 of which were made for the film-crew worldwide. The bad guy will be driving the hybrid Jaguar C-X75 supercar which the company showed as a concept car, but will not produce. It should make for some great car chase scenes.

The Aston Martin DB-10 versus the Jaguar C-X75 can be seen in the Spectre trailer released today, including scenes from the car chases.

Aston Martin is keeping the details on its DB-10 a trade secret–except the obvious, such as the body is a two-door coupe) but here are the facts as I have gathered from those experts who make it their business to keep track of concept-car specifications (also Wikipedia has gathered its most-likely specs).

Its cost (if you could buy one) would be about half a million dollars (rumor is the studio might sell its 10 prototypes after the film has been showing a while). Its designer was Marek Reichman and it was manufactured at Aston Martin's Gaydon, Warwickshire, United Kingdom plant.

The engine is said to be the 4.7 liter V-8 Vantage (rather than the DB-9's V-12) built on a front-engine rear-drive layout with Aston Martin's proprietary vertical/horizontal (VH) Platform chassis. The horsepower is said to be 430-bhp with a torque of 361-lb f (pounds-force foot), resulting in a 0-to-60 miles-per-hour of between 3-and-4.3 seconds with a top speed of 193-to-200 miles-per-hour (depending on the source).

The Jaguar C-X75–also with the body of a two-door coupe–has a smaller engine, just 1.6-liters, but is both turbocharged and supercharged, resulting in 520-bhp. It also has a 194-bhp electric motor, which together are claimed to produce an unbelievable 850-bhp at 10,000 rpm (revolutions per minute) with 738-lb f of torque. It is also claimed to accelerate from 0-to-60 in 3 seconds and can exceed 200 miles-per-hour.

    Thanks for sharing the nice piece of information with us. Really awesome cars that you have shared. Showbiz industry is one of the best for some entertaining purposes. I also watch online movies @ letsmewatchthis(.)net for some entertainment. Online movies has lots of advantages like you do not need to spend money on travel and himself a ticket to the cinema, which at times is quite expensive. On most sites, you can watch a variety of movies and TV shows free of charge. Secondly, to show your movies online does not necessarily plan this event. As soon as your family will gather together, you can choose any online movies or cartoons, documentaries and feature series. Anyways, guys you are doing nice job.
