The 2005 Aston Martin DB9 was featured in Furious 7 driven by Deckard Shaw.

History

Furious 7

After Dominic Torretto retrieves his 1970 Dodge Charger R/T from his garage. He drives it all the way to downtown Los Angeles where Deckard is waiting with his Aston Martin. After a chase up to a parking garage, Shaw and Dominic play a game of chicken and speed to each other to ram the others car. Dom jumps his Dodge Charger over on top of Deckard's Aston Martin when they crash, destroying both cars.

Production

Aston Martin Lagonda Limited s a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. Founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford; Aston Martin became associated with luxury grand touring cars in the 1950s and 1960s.

One of the most famous movie cars is the Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery as James Bond in the 1964 film Goldfinger.  Fifty years later, Deckard Shaw drives the latest incarnation of the DB line.  The DB9 has a 450 HP, 6.0 Liter V12 engine with a top speed of 186 mph.   

Inconsistencies

The car was used in Furious 7 with the intention of making it appear to be a 2014 model. However this was not true and in fact it was a 2005 model. In an interview, Dennis McCarthy stated that "We faked the Aston, but the styling and shape of the car has stayed the same so most people wouldn't know it's not a 2014 model." A further inconsistency is that Deckard is seen manually shifting the car however the DB9 did not come with a manual transmission. Dennis McCarthy stated that "a manual transmission to me is just cooler, so we had our own shifter for that".

Trivia

  • The Aston Martin is one of the car manufacturers of the James Bond 007 film series. It started with the DB5 Introduced in Goldfinger driven by Sean Connery.
  • The DB9 was used for the car crash scene in Casino Royale instead of the DBS V12.
  • Although appearing to be a 2014 model, it was revealed by Dennis McCarthy that this was in fact false. "The styling and shape of the car has stayed the same so most people wouldn't know it's not a 2014 model."
