And James Bond's Aston Martin was seen under attack by villains in an explosive car chase scene as filming continued on No Time To Die in Matera, this week.

Bond's iconic DB5 sports car was filmed being pursued along winding country roads by an evil motorcyclist and a fleet of cars - before a hail of bullets narrowly missed the vehicle.

 In hot pursuit of the spy, the motorcyclist drove erratically along the winding roads behind his car, with a vehicle equipped with a mobile camera capturing the action. 

Daniel Craig was not present on the set, with a stunt driver taking the wheel during the action packed scenes. 

The Aston Martin was seen erratically swerving across the road, before appearing to be cornered in an idyllic square.

But in true Bond style, the secret agent managed to make his way out of trouble, seconds before bullets rang out.

Earlier this week, Craig was seen covered in fake blood as he filmed some very dramatic scenes for the spy thriller.

Despite his makeshift injuries, the 51-year-old actor looked relaxed as he spoke with crew members and marvelled at the work of the make-up department as he left the dilapidated building they were filming in.

Daniel looked sharp for the intense day of shooting, as he donned a cornflower blue shirt over his hunky torso and which he had tucked into a pair of off-white trousers. 

The leading man completed his look by wearing a pair of blue braces, while he kept a low profile by shielding his eyes with a pair of stylish shades.

Cracking a smile as he took a breather during the day's schedule, Daniel seemed to scoff as he wiped his hand over his face and examined the dirt and fake blood that came off.   

Joining him on the set was Bond Girl Léa Seydoux who looked focused as she headed to the set of No Time To Die on Wednesday.

The French actress, 34,  exuded elegance in a chic scarlet floral wraparound dress paired with black sandals as she walked onto set carrying what appeared to be a script.
