We already knew that No Time To Die would be a big movie. We knew that because it’s a James Bond movie. No Time To Die will be the 25th movie, and, from the looks of things, it could be the biggest Bond movie to date.
It’s long been established that every Bond movie comes with an Aston Martin vehicle. It won’t be different this time as Aston Martin has confirmed that several Aston Martin models will be in the film, including what is arguably the most famous Aston Martin model of all time: the DB5.
We can tell, though, that the cars that are sharing a chase scene with the replica DB5 are actual Jaguar models. The Jaguar XJ will be sharing some screen time with at least one of the eight replica DB5 units that were reportedly created specifically for this movie.
The Valhalla is Aston Martin’s new mid-engine supercar. We first saw a glimpse of it at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It shares a lot of the design cues with the Valkyrie but was created to look cleaner and more refined than the flagship halo car. Unlike the Valkyrie, the Valhalla is powered by a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine and a battery-electric hybrid system that combine to produce an output approaching 1,000 horsepower.
All told, No Time To Die should be an appointment movie experience for all of us. Forget about Bond’s mission in the movie or who he ends up sleeping with. We’re watching it for the cars, and from the looks of it, we’re going to have a healthy dose of them once the movie hits theatres in the first half of 2020.
