Bond car meets untimely end

Aston Martin destroyed in accident

A $250,000 Aston Martin ordered for the latest Bond movie, “Quantum of Solace,” crashed Saturday in spectacular style before the cameras even started rolling.

The car was being delivered to a set on the edge of Italian beauty spot Lake Garda when the driver lost control on a tight bend and plunged through a safety barrier.

Lake Garda’s mirror-smooth waters may have been briefly stirred, but in true James Bond style, the vehicle’s Brit driver was hardly shaken.

Fraser Dunn, 29, calmly freed himself from the wreck and swam ashore. He suffered minor injuries and was due to be released from the hospital Sunday .

“Solace,” the latest film in the 007 franchise, is due for release this fall.
