James Bond's Car Now Will Be Electric With The 2020 Aston Martin Rapide E!

The world's hottest secret agent will now have an electric car in his next movie. Indeed, James Bond will appear behind the wheel of a 2020 Aston Martin Rapide E, according to an internal source quoted by The Sun (British newspaper).

 

Apparently, the director Cary Joji Fukunaga (chosen to replace Danny Boyle after the latter withdrew because of "artistic differences") is a strong supporter of the environment and he would have strongly insisted on the producers to deliver a more eco-friendly vehicle. It is reported that he is currently working with Aston Martin to develop the racing car.

 

As was the case in Casino Royale (DB5 and DBS) and in Spectrum (DB5 and DB10), there could be more than one Aston Martin in the next movie. After all, despite the many gadgets they have, 007 cars are usually crashed in very short times.

 

By the way, the car brand still has not released any images of its Rapide E. The images you see here were taken when the car was to be called RapidE.

 

The real Aston Martin Rapide E, which was developed with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering and whose 155 units are due to be delivered by the end of 2019, operates two electric motors totaling 603 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. That's much more than the outgoing Rapide S, which produces 552 horsepower and 465 lb-ft. As a result, it reaches 96 km/h (60 mph) in less than four seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h. With a battery of 65 kWh, its autonomy is about 320 kilometers according to the WLTP test protocol.

 

In addition, the body of the Rapide E has been modified to make it more aerodynamic. New alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires with low rolling resistance are grafted to it. The suspension has been revised and a limited slip differential is used to manage power between the rear wheels.

 

Filming for the 25th James Bond movie, which does not yet have an official name, is scheduled to begin on April 6 with actors Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Lea Seydoux and, rumored, Rami Malek in the role of the wicked. The release on the movie is scheduled for April 2020.
