  • Prince William took wife Kate out for a surprise drive in a Bond-like Aston Martin
  • The DBX707 has a top speed of 193mph and is first car built in Wales for 50 years
  • Comes after William’s outfit at Earthshot outfit drew comparisons with 007

Prince William was given a licence to thrill when he treated Kate to a ride in a James Bond-style Aston Martin that he was gifted for a weekend test drive.

The Prince of Wales reportedly took his wife in an Aston Martin DBX707 – from the car maker beloved by Ian Fleming’s 007 – for a secret ride around Norfolk.

This came after the Duke of Cambridge’s outfit of a velvet dinner suit complete with a black bow tie at his £50million Earthshot prize drew comparisons with the secret agent.

Topping out at 193mph, the £189,000 Aston is the fastest SUV in the world, and the first production car to be built in South Wales in more than half a century.

The four-year-old factory in South Wales delivered around 1,000 jobs to produce the speedy car.

Across the secret agent franchise, Bond has driven four different Aston Martins, but the DBX707 has not yet appeared in one of the flicks.

The delivery of the SUV was ‘hush-hush’ and was kept so quiet the secret service could have carried out the operation, an insider told the Sun.

But after the delivery, Wills was seen zooming through winding country lanes in North Norfolk, they added.

Reportedly, it was ‘not a coincidence’ that the car the Prince of Wales took for a spin was built in Wales by Welsh workers.

The Prince got to drive the car for the whole weekend but instead of jumping out through an ejector seat and crashing the car into a river like 007, he handed the keys back after his test drive.

William’s love of Aston Martins is not new. At his wedding in 2011 William drove his new wife in a vintage Aston decorated with balloons in the colours of the UK flag as they drove off from Buckingham Palace.

The Prince has also been considered to take over from the role of Bond from Daniel Craig after producer Barbara Broccoli joked he would be the ‘perfect candidate’, after he gave her a CBE in July.
