You only customize cars twice

Our heavyweight champion, Balázs, or better known as Assur on the premises is the news writer of the mother site, totalcar.hu. Oh yes, he’s an automotive engineer too. They say there isn’t a data that has ever escaped his mind, all we know is that he can drop into any conversation about any car that was made after the war, and he’ll be able to add a ton of details you won’t ever be able to find in books. He has been thinking of selling his longserving Volvo for years, so he always has some used car adverts open on his computer, just in case. Has a wife and two (almost grown-up) children.

Nine cars customized for the upcoming 24th James Bond film were stolen following the press event.

According to German newspapers, nine cars were stolen from the Land Rover Training Center in Neuss near Düsseldorf right after details of the next James Bond film „Spectre” were announced. Five of them were Range Rover Sport models, and all of them were ready to be transported to a shooting location in the Alps.

It is a particularly big loss as the cars had already been customized for the film. The direct material damage is estimated at €800,000, but could amount to much more as the theft is certain to delay filming if new cars need to be prepared. The thieves, by the way, must have been true professionals or extremely lucky as the German police are said to have detected no traces whatsoever.

„Spectre” is said to premiere at movie theatres at 6 November, 2015 and will be filmed at several locations including Mexico City, Tangier, London, Rome, and Sölding, Austria. Marking the 50th anniversary of Aston Martin’s association with the franchise, the official Bond car for the film has been revealed as the new DB10.

Its engine is one cylinder short of the old one. It's gained a ton of buttons on the dash. And the looks – they’re up for debate. Has it become better?
