Similarly to other British celebrities, James Bond will be going electric in her Majesty’s service in the next film. While the movies have always been noted by car enthusiasts, the Aston Martin Rapide E, is upholding the tradition and exclusively so as only 155 units will be built.
Reports cite director Cary Joji Fukunaga as the driving force behind the change to the vehicle. The Bond film series has long stood to represent luxury and lavish lifestyles of the fast and rich (spies), but an environmentally friendly note is entirely new. While the luxurious underpinnings of the £250,000 vehicle are unassailable, we are happy to see that even spies think of the planet once in a while.
