I think it's a V8, maybe a Vantage. I hope that the crashed one was a replica...

CGI for the crash.

Has a Vantage bodykit but the bonnet is from a 1973-78 model V8 (Vantage models would have the power bulge closed off).

Sandie wrote CGI for the crash.

Obviously :D And a mock-up for the wrecked one.

I only pointed it out as Aolju thought it was a replica. Though I guess I misunderstood his post. Crashed vs Crashing.

Aston Martin V8s are still pretty valuable, they wouldn't destroy one just for a movie. These were really expensive cars when new, more expensive than things like Porsches or even Ferraris I think.

The flying one looks wrong - rear cut-off should be more vertical and rear side window shape not right. It smells Capri Mk1 in that picture, which might work for the wreck as well.

The crash looks CGI to me

The crash is CGI, for sure. Only the start of the rollover is seen (and looks fake), then the scene cuts and you see the (mock-up) car on its roof.
For a comedy movie that does not have a huge budget, it is quite enough. I find that better than some blockbuster which would have a 5-second crash that needed to destroy three cars to achieve a not-much-better result.

No rear spoiler means it's not a vantage.
V8 with a vantage nose?

Not a Vantage - no rear spoiler, wrong bonnet but has Vantage front bodykit. Bonnet matches V8 Mk3 and has new-for-Mk3 onwards removal of vents on panel between boot and rear window. BBS wheels were fitted 86+ (V8 Mk5/Vantage Mk2) so part of the updating exercise on this Mk3.
