Best James Bond Car?

Wed Jul 11, 2001 12:23 pm

James Bond always has a nice ride. Whether it's his Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger to the BMW Z8 in The World is Not Enough, he's been a conossieur of driving the world's most expensive cars to their limits and, when they can be pushed no more, destroying them (much to Q's chargin)

Which one of his cars is the best?

I like the BMW 750 from Tomorrow Never Dies. The car had TONS of gadgets and it had an attitude too. It wasn't just superlative in driving fast, it seemed to have a bit of "cheek" both in that German synthesized voice and in how it resisted the attacks of Carver's goons for so long.

Which one do you guys like?

BTW, Aston is coming back to James Bond in Bond 20!

Let's not forget the submarine Lotus in the Spy who loved me! That car was cool but had no personality.

Aston Martin DB7 is the quintesential Bondcar like Sean Connery is the only 007...

I liked the BMW 750 in "Tommorrow Never Dies". There are rumors that James Bond will drive an Aston Martin DB7 in the next bond movie, that would be nice.

Yeah, The World is Not Enough used the car as much as Tomorrow Never Dies, but the car didn't have that attitude problem that I find so endearing.

The car in the next James Bond movie is going to be the Aston Martin DB8.

Did you forget about the blue 1962 Sunbeam cabriolet registration number Z 8301 ?

Definately the Aston Martin...

And rumors have it that the next Bond fim, Bond 20, will feature an Aston Martin! Can't wait... its a year and a half away.

I would say the best was also the most unlikely and that was the yellow Citroën 2CV in the 1981 movie For Your Eyes Only

A 2CV? I remember James Bond driving that one but I never remembered that car getting top billing.

Thanks everybody for responding.

Big fan of the DB-5, but does the DB-7 look like a Mitsubishi Eclipse to anyone else?
