Daniel Craig, as British spy James Bond, is set to jump back behind the wheel of an Aston Martin for the next 007 movie, Skyfall, due out in November.

Speaking at the Geneva motor show, design boss Marek Reichman confirmed that Bond would be back behind the wheel of an Aston Martin.

While 007 typically drove Bentleys in the original Ian Fleming novels, he has long been associated with Aston Martins in the blockbuster movies.

Aston Martin claims it has never paid to be featured in the films – as other brands such as BMW have previously – instead, getting heavily involved in building special stunt cars.  “Q” will be having a field day designing ejection seats and cars that come to heel, a la the Johnny English Bond spoofs.
