Idris Elba just banked another skill that may help him land the iconic role of the next James Bond: the ability to drive really fast.
The actor teamed with Bentley earlier today in South Wales in an effort to break the British land speed record known as the “Flying Mile.”
The record was previously held by Sir Malcolm Campbell, a professional racing motorist and journalist in 1927, who clocked in at 174.8 mph in a Napier-Campbell Blue Bird.
Elba, on the other hand, opted for Bentley Continental GT Speed, and hit an incredible 180.361 on his run.
Now, let’s hope we get to see Elba put those skills to work as the next 007, yeah?
