Our Favorite Bond Cars
As we await the debut of the latest James Bond, Spectre, we thought it would be fun to take a look at our favorite Bond cars. The character in the Ian Fleming novels on which the movies are based drove a Bentley. Over the course of the 50 year movie franchise, Bond has driven an amazing fleet of exotic and expensive cars, but is most strongly associated with the Aston Martin. The films have also featured cars by Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Bentley, Citroen Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover Lincoln, Lotus and Rolls Royce. Regrettably never a Kia.
Beautiful women and beautiful cars are an essential part of any Bond movies and Spectre will not disappoint. In the last Bond movie, Skyfall, Bond’s vintage Aston Martin DB5 reappeared to the delight of car enthusiasts. In Spectre, Bond will drive an Aston Martin DB10 manufactured specifically for the film and will not be available. The automaker intends to auction one off next year, but it won’t be street legal. Buyers will have to wait for the DB11 to roll off the production lines.
Bond’s luxurious cars are not only beautiful and fast, but equipped with the gadgets and weapons and needed to out run his enemies. Here’s our pick for the Best of 007’s cars. Which is your favorite?
