James Bond Stunt Double Puts Aston Martin Through Hell in Chase Scene

James Bond is back to handling his classic ride in classic 007 fashion — which means somewhere an Aston Martin is getting driven fast and hard.

The next Bond flick — “No Time to Die” — is shooting right now in Matera, Italy, and on Sunday they tackled an intense car chase scene on the windy, narrow streets of Piazza San Pietro Caveoso.

What’s rough about these stunts is how much rubber-to-the-road abuse this Aston Martin DB5 takes on set. Sure, it’ll make for some great action sequences — but the value of this gorgeous ride will be dwindled down to practically nothing after what it goes through here.
