(Newser) – James Bond may be needing a new set of wheels after authorities fished his Aston Martin out of an Italian lake yesterday, the Telegraph reports. A stunt driver lost control of the $240,000 roadster and dumped it in the drink, suffering a few small bruises—but the film, Quantum of Solace, suffered the loss of its only available Bond car.
