The franchise is also known for its exhilarating chase scenes featuring everything from hearses to villains on skis to helicopters.

This year’s instalment, Spectre, will be no different, with filmmakers teasing a high stakes showdown between Bond (Daniel Craig) in a Aston Martin DB10 and his nemesis, Mr Hinx (Dave Bautista), in a Jaguar C-X75.

The cars will race through the streets of Rome, just one of the numerous international filming locations for the movie.

“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,” director Sam Mendes said.

“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.”

The Aston Martin DB10 was designed specifically for the film, while the Jaguar model is a concept car unavailable for actual sale.

You can see the car chase in full when the movie hits Australian cinemas on November 6 but for the time being you’ll have to be content watching this behind the scenes clip.
