If you are passionate about premium British cars, we wouldn’t recommend you read on, for according to stunt coordinators, Spectre has seen more than £24m worth of vehicles destroyed.
A total of SEVEN custom-built Aston Martin DB10s have been totalled by the Bond franchise’s stunt team, all in the name of cinematography.

Spectre’s chief stunt coordinator, Gary Powell, claims that they ‘set the record for smashing up cars… in Rome we wrecked millions of pounds worth.’ Alright, don’t rub it in!
