Unlike most celebrity marriages, or even Top Gear and the BBC, there are some groupings or pairings which just go together like, Tom and Jerry or Christmas and decorated trees. These happy couplings are so inextricably linked, that to separate them, or try to replace one part with another is quite frankly absurd.
Another coupling which has always been perfect is Bond and Aston Martin. At one point the money men tried to sell out to BMW, but the great global public were having none of it. They simply kept asking when the Aston was coming back, then popped the champagne corks when the DB5 returned in Skyfall, but to see her crash… OMG!
Now, as everyone who has the even the slightest interest in cars know, Aston Martin has created a new Bond car, just as they did at the very beginning. Unlike the DB5, which was commercially available, Bond’s DB10 isn’t, and Aston claim it never will be, but who knows. Here is the latest trailer, and just the sound of the engine adds drama and excitement to the Bondness of Bond. I can’t wait for this to hit the screens, it looks amazing.
Another perfect grouping are Top Gear’s Hammond, May and Clarkson. Together they are exciting, interesting, naughty, irreverent lads who bounce off each other to create pure magic. Separately they are neither funny nor interesting. Even on the rare occasions when only 2 out of the 3 appear together, it lacks energy. That being said, I do wish they’d hurry up and announce where they are going to place their business as I need to know if I should invest in www.netflix.com or amazon prime. Chris Evans might like his cars and know his stuff but he’s not going to cut it in my books.
