James Bond's Aston Martin DB10 takes on Spectre villain's Jaguar CX75 in dramatic high-speed car chase on the banks of Rome's River Tiber

PICTURED: James Bond's Aston Martin DB10 takes on Spectre villain's Jaguar CX75 in dramatic high-speed car chase on the banks of Rome's River Tiber

It's Daniel Craig's fourth outing as James Bond and if these new pictures from the set are anything to go by, Spectre could be his most dramatic film yet. 
New scenes from the Rome set of the movie show yet another high-speed car chase, this time involving a Jaguar closely following Bond's beloved Aston Martin along the banks of the River Tiber on Wednesday.
It is believed the dramatic nighttime chase ends with a car going in to the river and indeed, Bond's Aston Martin was close to the edge as stunt drivers filmed the scene.

Dramatic: New pictures from the Spectre set show a high-speed car chase between Bond's Aston Martin DB10, specially made for the movie, and the villain's Jaguar CX75

The cars involved are thought to be Bond's Aston Martin DB10, specially made for the movie, and the villain's Jaguar CX75.
The model's exact specifications are being kept under wraps by Aston Martin bosses.

Leaked: Plot details of Spectre which recently leaked revealed that the chase ends with a car in the murky depths of the Tiber but that scene was not filmed during this segment

According to reports, the luxury manufacturer does not plan to put the vehicle up for sale until after it has been driven by Bond.
It is thought that the motor is a 'nod to future designs' and so Aston Martin insiders are keeping the machine as far away as possible from rival firms - who they fear may try to copy its sleek design. 
Film producers and crew have also yet to reveal what gadgets the car will have, following the famous ejector seats, rocket launchers and even built-in defibrillators of previous models.

Aston Martin said they worked closely with Bond director Sam Mendes to create 'the ultimate car for the world's most famous spy'.
It is the 50th anniversary of Bond's use of an Aston Martin, which started in the film Goldfinger when Sean Connery drove the iconic DB5.
The car was shown at the film's launch back in December but this is the first time it has been seen on set.
Top choice for Spectre's villain: While it is not yet known who will plays Bond's nemesis, it is known that their car will be this Jaguar CX75

Producers of the film have run into numerous obstacles as they attempted to finalise location plans for the five-week shoot.
Earlier this year one car chase scene around the city’s baroque fountains in Rome was scrapped after protests by the city's cultural heritage officials.
Last month Daniel was injured behind the wheel during a high-speed car chase through the streets of Rome - his second injury while filming the movie.

The secret agent’s state of the art silver Aston Martin DB10 hit a bump in the road, as it raced through the central streets, which had been closed off for filming. 
Doctors were called after Craig hit his head on the car’s interior, La Repubblica reported, but the injury was not serious.
However Craig flew out of Rome the next day, leaving the stuntman to take care of the rest of the shoot.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica commented: ‘The streets of Rome have managed to accomplish what the secret agents on Her Majesty’s secret service never could - a knockout blow to 007.’
 Craig reportedly suffered a knee injury just a week before while filming in Austria. 
But that hasn't stopped the producers and the most recent car chase was full of thrills and spills.

Monica Bellucci on keeping it sexy at 50, what's it like to be the oldest Bond Girl and why Daniel Craig is the perfect gent

The oldest Bond girl to-date has made it clear that her sex appeal will provide great chemistry alongside 'perfect' man Daniel Craig, 46.
Italian actress Monica Bellucci will play James Bond's love interest in the upcoming movie, Spectre.
Before that, however, the 50-year-old actress told Loaded Magazine about her sex appeal and what she brings to the 007 story.

Although she first auditioned to play a Bond girl back in 1997 - for the role that went to Teri Hatcher in Tomorrow Never Dies - Monica's franchise debut will be as Lucia Sciarra in 2015's Spectre.
'The only thing I can say is that my name is Lucia and, sorry, that's it I'm afraid,' the actress explained when asked to reveal her character's role.
Monica won't be the only Bond girl in the movie: Naomie Harris and Loaded cover model Lea Seydoux also co-star opposite Daniel's Bond and Christoph Waltz's villainous Blofield.

She wouldn't give away details on the Spectre plot, but Monica noted that her maturity was an asset to her sexiness.
'Instead of playing a James Bond girl, because of my maturity I play a James Bond woman,' she said.
While Monica admitted that her favourite James Bond of all time was Sean Connery, she was full of enthusiasm for the 47-year-old Daniel.

'James Bond is the ideal man for Italians,' said Monica.
'He's courageous, strong, mysterious, sexy and the perfect English gentleman. So I think Daniel Craig is perfect for that.'
Originally a model - a career Monica is has left behind ('I felt like a cow that is full of milk and no one will take it') - the actress received widespread notice with Bram Stoker's Dracula in 1992.

Double OW seven: Daniel Craig suffers another injury on set of Bond movie Spectre while filming high-speed car chase in Rome

James Bond has encountered a villainous new adversary during filming of the next episode of the franchise in Rome – the city’s famous cobblestones and potholes.
Daniel Craig, who plays Bond in the forthcoming Spectre, was injured behind the wheel during a high-speed car chase through the streets of Rome - his second injury while filming the movie.
The secret agent’s state of the art silver Aston Martin DB10 hit a bump in the road on Monday, as it raced through the central streets, which had been closed off for filming.

For the high-octane scene the car used was a vehicle-steering dual being driven in reality by a stuntman.
Doctors were called after Craig hit his head on the car’s interior, La Repubblica reported, but the injury was not serious.
However Craig flew out of Rome the next day, leaving the stuntman to take care of the rest of the shoot.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica commented: ‘The streets of Rome have managed to accomplish what the secret agents on Her Majesty’s secret service never could - a knockout blow to 007.’
The 46-year-old wore a flat cap and shades but had no visible facial injuries. Craig reportedly suffered a knee injury just a week before while filming in Austria.
Producers of the film have run into numerous obstacles as they attempted to finalise plans for the five-week shoot in Italy.
Earlier this week the cobblestones were reported to have interfered with sound quality as crew filmed another car scene. 
MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Daniel Craig for comment.
