Aston Martin hasn’t said yet (the car is still in the concept stage) how fast it will be, but when Car and Driver asked how it would stack up to 789 horsepower of the McLaren Senna – Aston Martin said, yeah, its new car’s twin-turbo V-6 (with hybrid assistance) would probably be at least as powerful. (The new Aston Martin doesn’t make smoke screens or oil slicks, even James Bond probably wouldn’t need them, not with that kind of horsepower.)

Aston Martin has borrowed some tech from the aerospace industry, to make a rear wing for the car that can “flex” without any moving parts – to whatever angle minimizes drag and turbulence. Oh, and the new car will have Castrol’s new 90-second oil change system!
If you’re curious about what Bond’s original Aston Martin looked like, by the way, it looked like this:
