This is a fake Aston Martin, not a real car. (It is also crashed in the movie : /vehicle_503765-Toyota-Dyna.html .)

The "older" main character (http://asianwiki.com/Setha_Sirachaya ) is a millionaire (in this movie). In this movie he own expensive cars, but no any use of another cars are visible. Just only this car he drive that visible in movie.

This car is use in many scenes, include a car chase.

I think this car has no substitute, and I think there are no any real Aston Martin to use in this movie.

A RHD Calibra with Opel badging is very unusual - I would expect Vauxhall. However seat logos in thumb noted. Seems clear that crash car was a dressed-up Calibra, but does that exclude ordinary pictures being a genuine Aston?

I used to deliver morning papers many years ago, and did mostly drive RHD Opel Kadett E and Opel Astra A. As I was interested in cars back then as well, and did know that most RHD of these makes were Vauxhalls, I thaught the Opels were renamed Vauxhalls, and thus made in England. Surprizingly they were German made ones.

AFAIK all Calibras were German-made - never UK. We've had lots of Opel/Vauxhall RHD/LHD discussions before for 80s/90s/00s Kadett/Astra/Cavalier/Vectra mainstream models - basically no chance of identifying assembly plant from UK/D/Belgium - they all produced anything whenever needed and then moved the deckchairs around again. And RHD Opels were sold in some markets instead of Vauxhall (eg RoI, some Mediterranean islands) and there was limited LHD Vauxhall-badged production.

Calibras were made initially in Germany (Rüsselsheim) alongside the Vectra on which it was based. This was followed by by Valmet Automotive in Finland when the Vectra model was superseded by a later model.

It was readily straightforward to order RHD Opels from Opel marketing in fact they often encouraged it. Likewise Vauxhall Motors I guess would order LHD Vauxhalls from the system but as dsl says once in the system it was down to the specific manufacturing plant to build either model.
