Cops pull over suspected £155k Aston Martin DB11 supercar - in Rastrick!

But Aston Martin insist that Twitter picture is blurred out. So who was at the wheel - James Bond?

Police got more than they bargained for when they stopped a flash motor in Rastrick.

Officers from the West Yorkshire Roads Policing Unit caused the car to stop and spoke to the driver.

Turns out it was a prototype Aston Martin DB11, a secret new model and the only one in the UK.

The RPU tweeted a picture of the car but Aston Martin insisted they blur it out – completely!

Often police obscure car registration plates of offending vehicles – but never the WHOLE vehicle.

A quick search on the internet shows that Aston Martin – once part of David Brown’s in Huddersfield hence the initials – is about to launch a new 600bhp twin-turbo GT model.

The supercar – expected to cost a whopping £155,000 – is reputed to be “the most significant Aston since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.”

The most famous Aston Martin driver is 007 James Bond but the Examiner cannot confirm whether a Mr J. Bond was at the wheel.
