Aston Martin have retained one of the hero cars and also the second DBS that achieved the world record for barrel rolls. They were both shown at the Kensington Palace Centenary Celebration during July 2013. The colour of the Bond cars was called ‘Casino Royale’ and became a standard DBS colour once production began later in 2007.

Casino Royale put its own unique twist on James Bond 's famous Aston Martin tradition. As Daniel Craig took over from Pierce Brosnan as Britain's favorite fictional spy, the James Bond franchise underwent a drastic makeover. With Brosnan's final jaunt, Die Another Day, accused of feeling outdated and lacking in substance, Daniel Craig's Bond stripped back the formula and rebuilt Bond in a modern, darker image.

Aston has used the DBS name once before on their 1967-72 grand tourer coupe. The modern car replaces the 2004 Aston Martin Vanquish S as the flagship of the marque.

T he choice of hero car for Casino Royale was made in late 2005 when Aston boss Dr Ulrich Bez invited Bond producer Barbara Broccoli up to Gaydon to look at a new DB9-based model under development in the design studio. Broccoli loved the car and immediately cast it as the perfect transport for Daniel Craig’s leaner, meaner, slightly blonder Bond. This feature was originally published in MOTOR’s March 2007 issue.
Casino Royale works as an origin story for Craig's Bond and explains how he gets his famous sports car. While playing poker in the Bahamas, 007 wins a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 in a hand, and the car is intentionally similar to the one from Goldfinger, working another familiar Bond tenet into the modern origin story. This Aston Martin has left-hand drive and the Bahamas license plate "56526."
