Pierce Brosnan loves driving his Aston Martin - but he is often worn out by the car's speed.

The Irish actor considers the British-created vehicle his most valued possession, just like the car driven by his most famous on-screen alter-ego James Bond. But he is not used to the high velocity it can travel at.

Brosnan says, "I love my Aston Martin, it's a 2003 silver Vanquish. They did a special job on it. When the sun pops on it, it's like a bullet.

"I got her up to 185 miles-per-hour on a track, down in Pagnell (England). If you get that kind of car you should open her up. I spent two days down there with a driver and was whipped by the end of it."
