A select group of journalists from the automotive world had the unique chance to get behind the wheel of every Aston Martin starring in No Time To Die.

The cars seen in the film are the Aston Martin Valhalla, DB5, V8 Vantage and DBS Superleggera.

But Esquire writes that the Valhalla supercar has been cut from the final film, and will only be seen in a static shot.

The Valhalla was a very late addition. Just three months before filming, EON productions told the Aston Special Operations team “if you can get us a drivable Valhalla then it will feature in the film”.

Aston Martin managed to make the car, but disappointingly, in the film’s final cut it will only feature in a static shot, not driving.

The DB5 on the other hand will feature prominently in a spectacular chase scene in Matera, Italy.

Stunt driver Mark Higgins recreated some of his moves from No Time To Die at the Silverstone race track.
