Thumbs up Daniel Craig gets lifetime driving deal with Aston Martin

http://www.egmcartech.com/2008/10/22...-aston-martin/

Daniel Craig recently learned that playing 007 has some serious perks. The new James Bond has just landed himself a lifetime driving deal with Aston Martin. When hes not driving the Aston Martin DBS in the movie or crashing it into quarries, Craig has a free pass from Aston Martin to take any of their cars for a spin.

Craig can borrow the cars to drive on the streets or when he really wants to let loose, Craig can hit up Aston Martins test track.


Im lucky enough that if I desperately want to drive in an Aston Martin, the company is just fantastic to me, said Craig in a statement. Theyll let me go on a track and drive one all day long.

The perk made Craig decide not to buy an Aston for himself. He says: I could drive it faster and more furiously (on the track) than anywhere on the road. I live in London (and) it doesnt make any sense to drive an Aston Martin there. Ive nowhere to park it.

He couldn't even drive stick when he was making his first Bond movie & complained about it when he found out the Aston was a stick ...

I'd be jealous, but Casino Royale exceeded my expectations 10 fold. He's just good.

It is not that hard to learn to drive manual. When you are getting paid so much, you might as well go take some lessons. I will teach him for free in the Aston Martin.
