Aston Martin DB10 vs Jaguar C-X75: Which Bond Car is Bolder?
Martin, Aston Martin. While Daniel Craig might be the leading man behind the upcoming James Bond Spectre film, literally millions of dollars have been dished out to secure the perfect vehicles for both Craig and his supporting cast of villains. While Aston nails down the hero role, Jaguar-Land Rover continues to play up its villainous side with a host of vehicles hoping to throw Bond off course. But how does Bond’s powerful DB10 stack up against the leading villain car, the Jaguar C-X75? Take a look. RELATED: The New Vehicles From James Bond Spectre
Aston Martin DB10
Engine: 4.7L V8
Horsepower: 420 (est.)
0-60: 3.2 Seconds
24 Bond films later, and nearly every one of them featured an Aston Martin in some way, shape, or form. For the latter franchises, the Aston remained front and center—Spectre is no different.
The DB10 you see here was designed specifically for the film, meaning you won’t be able to buy one even if you tried. Under the hood is the same V8 you’d find on a Vantage, and 0-60 mph is dealt with in just 3.2 seconds. It’s a proper hero car—but is it enough to handle the villainous Jags?
Engine: 1.6L Hybrid
0-60: 3.0 Seconds (est.)
Off the bat, it’s pretty easy to see that the Jaguar C-X75 is a monster machine. Aggressive lines, a turbocharged, hybrid engine setup—oh, and did we mention the near 900 horsepower?
Comparatively, the C-X75 is monstrously more powerful than the hero DB10. Take into account weight, though, and the naturally-aspirated V8, and the specs sheet is surprisingly close. At least, as far as we know.
Spectre hits theaters today, but whether or not the Jag or Aston is the better car—well, we’ll just have to wait and see. Vote below and tell us what you think.
