After his flirtation with BMWs, Brosnan's Bond goes back to an Aston Martin.

Q (John Cleese taking over from the late Desmond Llewelyn) shows Bond his new car in his secret laboratory in a disused subway station.

Q: Your new transportation.
(an empty platform wheels up)
Bond: Maybe you've been down here too long.
Q: The ultimate in British engineering.
Bond: You must be joking.
Q: As I learned from my predecessor, Bond, I never joke about my work. Aston Martin call it the Vanquish, we call it the Vanish.

Bond: Oh, very good.
Q: Adaptive camouflage, tiny cameras on all sides project the image they see onto a light-emitting polymer skin on the opposite side. You see, to the casual eye it's as good as invisible. Plus all the usual refinements, ejector seat, torpedoes, target-seeking shotguns to shoot down mobile objects. Why don't you acquaint yourself with the manual, you should be able to shoot through that in a couple of hours.

Bond: Just took a few seconds, Q.
Q: Wish I could make you vanish!

This registration was probably switched to a "show car" rather than one actually used in the film. Remember they used (and wrecked) quite a few Vanquishes during filming, so it's not like there was just one. This is the case with other James Bond cars, with the original DB5 in Goldfinger, there were two used in filming and one that was a show car for exhibitions and publicity.

With this in mind I'm changing the year back to 2002 (filming took place between January and July of that year according to IMDB)

Roger Moore did not like this car. Mainly because of that ridiculous "adaptive camoflage". I must say, i do not disagree.

^ Like the license plate, he probably reacted with an "EWW."

But adaptive camoflauge (invisibility) is not completely science fiction. On Top Gear UK Richard Hammond drove a van fitted with large video screens around it. It was clearly not as practical or seamless as the Aston but still pretty cool.

The way it`s portrayed in the movie is ridiculous. The car casts no shadow when the camoflauge is activated. Not to mention that there even is a scene where Bond hides along side the car when in camoflauge mode. HELLO?!!!

Obviously a coincidence, but there was a very similar scene four years before Die Another Day was released:
