When it comes to cars, James Bond has certainly driven his fair share of incredible models over the decades. From the humble Sunbeam Alpine in Dr. No through to the beautiful Aston Martin DB5 in Skyfall, Bond movies have always gifted our screens with some sensational vehicles.
To celebrate the release of No Time to Die, we have put together our list of the Top 5 James Bond Cars of all time.
1. Aston Martin DB5
Films: Goldfinger, Thunderball, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royal, Skyfall, No Time To Die
Without doubt the most famous bond car, the Aston Martin BD5 has been more synonymous with the 007 franchise than any other car. Starting with “Goldfinger,” this luxury GT has featured in seven bond movies in total so far. It almost always comes decked out with weaponry and gadgetry, including hidden guns, rotating plates, and ejector seats.
2. Lotus Espirit S1
Film: The Spy Who Loved Me
Possibly one of the most memorable bond moments off all time sees Roger Moore plunge his Lotus Espirit S1 underwater and it transforms into a submarine. If that doesn’t make it one of the best 007 cars, we don’t know what does.
3. Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Films: The Living Daylights, No Time to Die
Following a short break in Bond films, Timothy Dalton stepped into the 007 shoes. Featuring in ‘The Living Daylights’ was a fully-equipped Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante which came loaded to the gills with choice weapons, including a rocket afterburner, hidden missiles, and hubcap lasers. This car is also expected to feature in “No Time to Die”. Let’s hope it lives up to expectation.
4. Ford Mustang Mach 1
Film: Diamonds are Forever
Another one of bonds most famous car chase moments was in the movie ‘Diamonds are Forever’. 007 has the police hot on his heels with Tiffany Case riding shotgun in a revised Ford Mustang Mach 1 through downtown Las Vegas. He famously tilts the car onto its passenger side wheels while squeezing through an alleyway.
5. Toyota 2000GT Roadster
Film: You Only Live Twice
Originally set to be a hard top, the Toyota 2000GT had to be converted in order to accommodate Sean Connery’s height.
This car was cool before it became a Bond car, but the spy film series found a rather unique place in the Japanese sports car’s history.
