James Bond Damaged Aston Martin DBS Model Car - Quantum Of Solace Edition - By Corgi
The James Bond Damaged Aston Martin DBS Model Car - Quantum of Solace Edition - By Corgi is a die-cast model of the 2008 Aston Martin 6 Litre V12 DBS 2-door coupe crafted to 1:36 scale.
Backstory. James Bond drives an Aston Martin DBS, the successor of the Vanquish, in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. The original DBS was first produced from 1967-1972 and featured in On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969.
The Aston Martin DBS plays a dramatic role in the opening sequence of the film in which Bond navigates the winding lakeside roads from Lake Garda to Siena, Italy, with Mr. White in the boot of the car, pursued by hostile gunmen in Alfa Romeo 159s. A high speed car chase ensues, with Bond skilfully losing each car one by one until the final Alfa shoots off a mountain road, and Bond pulls calmly into Siena, the car all but destroyed.
The opening sequence of Quantum Of Solace was filmed on location in Italy over 16 days in the spring of 2008. The location of Lake Garda produced numerous challenges, not least because of the long and narrow tunnel that that car chase was filmed in. With only two lanes available in the confined space, absolute precision was required by the stunt team.
Details.A 1:36 scale painted die cast metal model replication all the authentic details from the vehicle featured in the film. The car has all the paint damage, missing doors, bullet holes and bumps that are a feature of the dramatic high speed chase which takes Bond through a marble quarry and thin tunnels. The car is presented in a rigid gift box with thefilmtitle graphic. Suitable for ages 14+.
