The deal between 007 movie producers and Aston means that any car in the blue oval's Premier Automotive Group can appear in supporting roles. Aston Martin's parent company, Ford Motor Co., also will offer several cars to the movie production, said Wolfgang Reitzle, chairman of Ford's Premier Automotive Group.<P>"When people think of James Bond, the first car they think of is Aston Martin," Reitzle said. "For all of us that love the 007 films, it is great news that Bond is back driving an Aston Martin, this time our latest and most sophisticated model ever. "We are also pleased to be working with MGM and Eon Productions, and through the wider support of Ford Motor Co. we will be offering our full range of cars to the production." <P>It's not known which models will be used, but Ford insiders hint that villains could drive blacked-out Range Rovers, while Government agents may pilot high-powered Jaguars or <B>Volvos</B>. However, it has been noted that one of the bad guys in Bond 20 will drive a Jaguar XKR.<P>The producers are extremely happy with the reunion of James Bond and the Aston Martin. Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli say, "James Bond and the British Aston Martin car have had a long and successful partnership in our films, and we are delighted to welcome the latest model, the Aston Martin Vanquish and Ford's Premier Automotive Group vehicles, to appear in the 20th film of the series."<BR><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 10-09-2001).]
