Behind the scenes of Rome car chase in ‘Spectre’

Fans of the James Bond movies will be thrilled to see the latest vlog on the official website. The footage shows a thrilling car chase in the streets of Rome, set during the dead of night.

Sam Mendes, the director of “Spectre,” described the scene: “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. 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.” 

Production actually shut down the city streets in order to film the scene that Dave Bautista, who plays antagonist Mr. Hinx, said will be very “iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome. I mean, how often do you see that? It’s one of those things you only see in a James Bond film.” 


The film features two never-before-seen cars, the Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75. Of the Aston Martin featured in the film, there will only be 10 in the world made and these will be for sale.

Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time, this time embarking on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. Craig is the sixth actor to reinvent the dangerous Bond persona, first starring in the reboot in 2006. 

“Spectre” hits theaters Nov. 6 , 2015.
