Looks like the stunt driver went too far with the stunt. lol. While delivering it to the scene in the rain. He was definitely ripping and enjoying himself. Poor 007.

I'm pretty sure I had seen the 007 Aston being driven under water.

Oh wait...

That was in a movie.

That was the Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me.

007's Esprit Submarine

They probably knew it back then that the Aston Martin was not too good in water.

Heavy rains caused the car to skid off the road & pop right into the lake.
Sorry,but delays in the release of the movie are expected!

Default Aston Martin DBS Crash Photo

Guys check these Aston Martin DBS crash photos. These were the ones being used for the latest Bond Movie.

The first one fell down from the mountains and into the lake..
The second one was a simulated crash
Apparently there were three crashed in 1 day!

But then these were not real DBSs but made up DB9s by the factory!
And in true bond style, the stunt drivers escaped unhurt..
