Bond's car insurance 'would exceed 7,000'

James Bond's car insurance premiums would equate to 7,108.50, according to a car finance company.

Having crashed and exploded cars in at least six of his films, it would cost Bond thousands of pounds to get car insurance on his Aston Martin DBS V12 in new movie Casino Royale, Virgin Car Insurance calculates.

Using the secret agent's age, occupation and vehicle extras, such as ejector seats and rockets, the car insurance firm proposes that Bond would be able to get insurance before undertaking his high-speed chases.

His car insurance premiums were also calculated bearing in mind his previous accidents, which include crashing into a wall in Goldfinger, driving into a lake in View To A Kill and racing off a car park roof in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Virgin Money spokesperson, John Franklin, said: "We were surprised at how low Bond's premium would be bearing in mind the car he drives and his clear lack of a no claims bonus.

"It just goes to show that even drivers with an action packed driving record don't have to be Goldfinger to get great car insurance."

Earlier this week, Lloyd East, general manager of AA Personal Loans, suggested that getting a good deal on car finance "can mean more car for your money".
