There's been a lot of nods and winks toward which cars James Bond will be throwing about in Bond 25 lately. The ones we've been teased with include the chop-top Land Rover, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the classic DB5, and an absolutely mad-looking Aston concept called the Valhalla.

Now, all Bond's Aston Martins for the new film have been lined up for inspection:

Let's do this school photo style. From left: Aston Martin V8 Vantage; stripped down DB5; normal DB5; Aston Martin V8 Vantage; DB5; DB5 with a pod on top, used by a stunt driver who does the actual driving while actors inside do the actual acting; and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

They're all huddled around the Aston Martin Valhalla, either consciously or unconsciously echoing that scene at the end of Hereditary in the treehouse where the nude cult members bow to Paimon. A spoiler? Maybe. Just maybe.

Given that original DB5s go for north of a million quid these days, these are likely to be very, very faithfully recreated facsimiles. Then again, very, very faithfully recreated facsimiles can be pretty spicy too. Aston Martin's own recreations of the classic DB5 with Bond's gadgets and modifications will set you back £2.75 million, and there will only be 25 such 'continuation' models made.
