Indian hand in Bond's favourite car

There is an Indian hand in James Bond's favourite car Aston Martin DB5 that appears again in the latest Bond movie 'Skyfall', which is turning out to be a big hit.

Since the 1960s, Aston Martin has been the fictional spy's favourite car and it is so in Skyfall, 23rd of the Bond movies.

The latest model has brakes by NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul's Caparo group.
"My company, Caparo, put the brakes into his Aston Martin," Lord Paul said.

Equipped with interesting gadgets by Q, Aston Martin DB5 was first driven by Sean Connery's Bond character in third 007 movie 'Goldfinger' in 1964.

Since then it showed up in five more films -- 'Thunderball', 'GoldenEye', 'Tomorrow Never Dies', 'Casino Royale' and in Daniel Craig-starrer 'Skyfall'.
