9 October 2008

The Aston Martin DBS that crashed into Lake Garda while on the way to the film set of the new Bond film Quantum of Solace has been sold, according to the film’s star Daniel Craig.The brand new DBS was completely destroyed in the accident, but that hasn’t stopped one James Bond fan from paying £200,000 for the infamous piece of Bond memorabilia. The new owner hasn’t yet been identified, but 007 did reveal that he is a collector.The £134k Aston was being delivered to the set in the early hours of the morning when the driver, an Aston Martin engineer, lost control on the damp roads near Torbole. The driver escaped from the crash with only minor injuries, but was knocked unconscious and sank 150 feet to the bottom of the lake before freeing himself and swimming to the surface.

Aston Martin DBS

Aston Martin’s greatest ever GT car might have a sharper edge than the DB9, but its natural environment is the open road rather than the track
