Car chase scene in Rome with Aston Martin DB10 and Jaguar C-X75 seems to be one of most exciting scenes in new James Bond film “Spectre”. Although such scenes in movies usually last no more than a few minutes, it takes a few days or weeks to shoot them. It was similar in this case. “Spectre” film crew was working on the scene for several nights in a row. In example on March 2nd 2015 they were filming on Via della Conciliazione (photo below) with St. Peter’s Basilica in background.
On March 8th I was lucky to see the car chase filming on Via Nomentana. All the cars were located at Ministero delle Infrastrutture e dei Transporti where the film crew built temporary fence (photos below).
There were only two cars – one Aston Martin DB10 and one Jaguar C-X75 in the scene, however there were more of them on the set.
About 10 p.m. everybody on a street could hear engines running – the sound was like on a pit lane on a race track. At first the car with cameras left the parking lot.
Some time later Jaguar C-X75 with license plate “ROMA 860K” appeared and drove away on Via della Conciliazione street.
And finally the Jaguar DB10 left the parking lot and the filming began.
