Aston Martin celebrates their proud association with James Bond at the 1,007th Formula One Grand Prix. The British Grand Prix at Silverstone will see Aston Martin Red Bull Racing cars running with special 007-inspired livery.

One of the most enduring movie partnerships will be in the spotlight this weekend when Aston Martin Lagonda and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films, celebrate the 1,007th Formula 1 Grand Prix, which takes place at Silverstone.

The British Grand Prix is the home race for the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing team, so it is fitting that the race falls on a number forever associated with James Bond.

The two Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1TM cars will feature the iconic 007 logo and Bond number plates on the back of their rear wings. Max Verstappen’s RB15 Formula 1 car will run the number plate from the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964) starring Sean Connery while Pierre Gasly’s car will feature the Aston Martin V8 number plate from The Living Daylights (1987) starring Timothy Dalton.

Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, comments:

“Aston Martin is proud of its association with James Bond. This weekend, we look forward to celebrating this longstanding partnership at Formula One’s 1,007th Grand Prix.”


When James Bond first appeared in the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger 1964, a lasting relationship was created. The following movie, Thunderball (1965), featured the Aston Martin DB5 at Silverstone in a chase sequence. Through the decades, Bond has driven many Aston Martins including the DBS, the V8 Vantage Volante and the DB10 to name but a few.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Aston Martin DBS, which featured in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) starring George Lazenby, 50 special-edition 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggeras will be sold.


The first of these special cars will be on-track at Silverstone during the Pirelli Hot Laps sessions. Ticketholders can see a number of the Aston Martins from the James Bond films on display in the Bond In Motion exhibition in London including the V8 that will appear in Bond 25 starring Daniel Craig, located in the Fanzone, to register for tickets go to www.eventworld.com/en/events/11.
