Once again, a DBS met its maker on a James Bond shooting. Following the several ones destroyed during the rollover scene in Casino Royale and the one which wasn’t supposed to take a fatal bath in the Lake Garda on the set of Quantum of Solace, the much desired vehicle hit a stone wall in a quarry for what will be the climax of the chase in the upcoming movie.
For good measure, the bad guy’s vehicle is also destroyed in the scene, which MI6 describes as follow:
Bond is chased by villains in Alfa Romeos around the banks of Lake Garda, culminating in a devastating crash in the Canalgrande and Fantiscritti marble quarries. The action will form the pre-credits sequence to the movie and is expected to run for 15 minutes.
Sounds like a hell of thrill ride to start a movie and we can’t wait to see it. At the same time, we’re sad about the car, but we console ourselves by thinking (hoping?) that most of the good stuff (engine, interior…) had been taken out.
MI6 has some really good shots of the making off in their article.
