  • Multiple Aston Martin DB5 cars were photographed by Bond fan site MI6-HQ on the set of the upcoming No Time to Die in Matera, Italy.
    Two other Aston Martins—the Valhalla hypercar and V8 Vantage Series II—will reportedly appear in the film as well.
    The film’s official title, release date, and plot were released this week.

We knew the newest Aston Martin, the Valhalla, would appear in the upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die; now we know the most famous model will as well.

Spies from the 007-obsessed site MI6-HQ released photos of multiple DB5s in a car transport near the set in Matera, Italy. As Autoblog points out, the last Bond film, Spectre, ended with Bond driving into the sunset in the classic GT that made its 007 debut in 1964's Goldfinger.

This has been a big week for Bond fans, as the title, release date, and plot were revealed on Tuesday. Here’s the official synopsis:

In NO TIME TO DIE, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.

The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Along with Daniel Craig, the movie stars Rami Malek as the villain, Ana De Armas as the Bond girl, and Lashana Lynch as a new agent who takes on the 007 moniker, along with Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Ralph Fiennes, and—apparently—at least three Aston Martins.

No Time to Die opens in the United States on April 8, 2020.
