"I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually," explains Mendes, "So it's a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world.”
"It's amazing. It's one of those scenes that's going to be very iconic," adds Dave Bautista (Guardians Of The Galaxy). "Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome – I mean, how often do you see that? It’s one of those things you only see in a James Bond film."
All we know about SPECTRE so far is that a cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Directed once again by Sam Mendes (Skyfall), SPECTRE stars Daniel Craig as Bond, of course, Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) as the enigmatic Oberhauser, Andrew Scott (Sherlock) as Denbigh, Monica Belluci (Irreversible) as Lucia Sciarra, Léa Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Colour) as Madeline Swann and Stephanie Sigman (Miss Bala), plus returning MI6 allies Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q and Rory Kinnear as Tanner.
The script, which will also see 007 drive the new Aston Martin DB10, was written by Skyfall scribe John Logan, along with Bond stalwarts Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Interstellar's (2014) Hoyte van Hoytema is replacing Roger Deakins as director of photography.
SPECTRE hits our screens on 23 October before heading to the US on 6 November.
