James Bond will reportedly drive the brand-new Aston Martin "Valhalla" hypercar in Bond 25

The British marque just unveiled the previously code-named AM-RB 003 today in a press release, but made no mention of a 007 connection. However, UK-based publication This Is Money reported that Daniel Craig will be behind the wheel in the upcoming 25th Bond movie:  

This is Money can exclusively reveal is set to be one of a trio of Aston Martins to appear in the latest 007 movie now in production starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The starring role of the new Valhalla – given a license to thrill alongside two other historic Aston Martin classics – is set to be confirmed later this week. 

As Jalopnik notes, Aston CEO Andy Palmer retweeted the article, all but confirming the British superspy's hellacious new whip. 

The name, which literally translates to "the hall of the fallen," is described as a warrior's postmortem paradise in Norse mythology. 

Powered by a new turbocharged V6 hybrid that This Is Money predicts will crank out 1,000 horsepower, the all-carbon-bodied coupe will bridge the gap between the forthcoming flagship Valkyrie hypercar and the Vanquish grand tourer.

The Valhalla joins legions of other Aston "V" models like the Vantage, Vulcan, and Volante-badged convertibles

Only 500 examples will be built, and it sounds like one of those is already spoken for.
