Last week we gave you our version of 007’s favourite drink, but now we’ve seen Spectre we couldn’t stop there. Bond loves his cars, almost as much as his women, from the Aston Martin DB5 to the Toyota 2000GT. So, inspired by the latest 007 outing we’ve compiled our own list of the spy’s 10 best rides. Hold onto your seat while you have a read because these cars are auto this world!
- T-55M5 tank, Goldeneye, 1995
No Bond car has caused quite as much damage as the T-55M5. Pierce Brosnan uses it to smash through cars even a brick wall in Goldeneye. Good job he didn’t tank it before killing villain Ourumuv!
- BMW Z8 –The World is Not Enough, 1999
Bond was the first person outside the factory to drive the limited edition BMW Z8. Looks like the car manufacturer gave Bond his own personal license to thrill with it.
- Ford Mustang 1 – Diamonds are Forever, 1971
The Ford Mustang 1 featured in one of the franchise’s most epic car chases. While fleeing a fleet of police cars, the spy jacks the Mustang onto two wheels to escape down an otherwise too-narrow alley. Bond must have felt more shaken than stirred after that!
- Aston Martin DB10, Spectre 2015
With its super sleek, elegant design, the DB10 looks set to become another classic Bond ride. The Aston Martin features in a car chase through Rome, in the latest film Spectre, causing absolute car-nage along the way.
- Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Die Another Day, 2002
Die Another Day may have been a flop with film critics, but this sleek and Piercing Aston Martin still won tons of praise. The car’s most impressive gadgetry is its camouflage coat that turns it invincible. Who wouldn’t like a porsche-on of that!
- AMC Hornet – Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
The AMC Hornet’s 360-degree rotating leap over a broken bridge is one of the most amazing Bond stunts ever. It set a record for the world’s first astro spiral on film and goes to show this car’s skills are wheelie, wheelie good!
- Aston Martin DBS – Casino Royale (2006)
Car fanatics winced at the amount of damage done to the DBS in Casino Royale. The car rolled over seven and a half times in that epic car scene that we’ll never get tyred of watching!
- Aston Martin DB5 – Goldfinger (1964), Goldeneye (1995), Skyfall (2012)
The Aston Martin DB5 first appeared in Goldfinger and was the first to be fully pimped out in style by Q. It reportedly cost £25,000 to gadgetise, more than the Aston Martin itself – which must have got the producers revved up.
- Toyota 2000GT – You Only Live Twice (1967)
In You Only Live Twice, Sean Connery swaps his beloved Aston Martin for this stunning 2000GT. The car was originally too small for the Bond actor to squeeze into so a custom open-top version had to be built.
- Lotus Esprit S1- The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
The Lotus Esprit definitely takes the top spot for Bond’s most gadgetised car. The car’s got so much va-va voom it can even function underwater and fire missiles on target. And, with a beautiful white futuristic design, it’s hands down the ultimate Bond ride.
