10 Bond Cars To Choose From Part 2

(Comments Competition) If fast & fancy cars with gadgets included are your scene then you must be a fan of the Bond cars. You don’t need to be on Her Majesty’s Secret Service to appreciate the brawn and beauty of Bond’s favourite vehicles. Find out which of them made it into our list of the top 10 Bond cars of all time.

The job of a famous British spy can’t be easy. Jetting around the world saving the free world from all manner of villains and evil doers must be stressful. To make the job somewhat more bearable he would at least need to be outfitted with the latest gadgets, accompanied by some of the most beautiful women and of course, be driving some of the best vehicles possible.

 It’s this last point we are most interested in at the moment as we finish looking at the recent list created at AskMen.com – what are the top 10 Bond cars of all time?

Numbers 5 through to 1 are listed below. Enjoy the cars and be sure to leave a comment to stand a chance of winning 5 FREE Euromillions vouchers.

 

5. Toyota 2000GT – You Only Live Twice

A very limited production run has seen this vehicle become highly sought-after for collectors. A special convertible version of the 2000GT was created specifically for the movie because, at 188 cms, Bond actor Sean Connery was too tall to fit into the original hard top version.

Apart from never having gone in to actual production, the Toyota 2000GT convertible is notable for another reason. It is one of the few Bond cars that he never actually drove himself, being chauffeured in the vehicle by Bond girl Aki.

4. Aston Martin Vanquish – Die Another Day

The only non-BMW driven by Brosnan’s Bond! Apart from being a stunning machine in its own right, the MI6 version sports some state-of-the-art spy gadgets:

- Machine guns on the fender
- Grill-mounted heat-seeking missiles
- The obligatory ejector seat (for getting rid of clingy Bond girls)
- A cloaking device that renders the vehicle invisible

The ‘Die Another Day’ Vanquish was auctioned off in 2006 for the very respectable sum of £144,500.00.

3. Lotus Esprit – The Spy Who Loved Me

The Lotus Esprit is perhaps best known as the Bond car that ‘turned into a submarine’. Bond is being chased along a short pier by evil henchmen; upon reaching the end of the pier he continues his escape underwater. The wheels fold in and fins pop out.

Submarine-mode featured some handy add-ons:

- Reinforcing bars across the windows
- A periscope
- Torpedos

Bond gets that sinking feeling…

2. AMC Hornet X Hatchback –The Man With The Golden Gun

One of the few non-European cars to make it as a Bond car! The Hornet features in what is often considered one of the best chase scenes of all the Bond films. Bond commandeers the Hornet from a Bangkok showroom for an epic chase finishing with an unbelievable ‘corkscrew’ jump over a broken bridge, a stunt so spectacular that the Guinness Book Of World Records listed it as the “third among the top ten James Bond film stunts.”

The first ‘astro-spiral’ to be used in a movie…

1 Aston Martin DBS – Casino Royale

With a 5.9 Litre 48-valve V12 engine producing 510 horsepower the Aston Martin DBS is the perfect combination of beauty and brawn.

In keeping with Daniel Craig’s current, ‘no-nonsense’ incarnation of Bond the DBS sports no extra frills like laser beams, missiles or ejector seats. It’s just straight forward driving pleasure (and power) in this Bond car, voted number 1 by the good people at AskMen.com.

Did Your Favourite Bond Car Make The List

The Bond lifestyle actually seems to resonate quite well with the lotto lifestyle. There is lots of travelling to exotic locations, along with the presence of beautiful people and many exciting adventures. Then of course there are the luxury vehicles!

The only thing that seems to be missing is the danger of being shot at along with the pressure of constantly having to save the world. It sounds like a good deal to us!

Which Bond car is your favourite of all time? If you could take home any Bond car which one would it be? Do you already own a Bond car, which one is it (model kits don’t count)?

Leave a comment below and tell us all about it. The top comments will win 5 FREE Euromillions vouchers. Comments close Friday 9th November.

Definitely the Aston Martin DBS is the one to die for.Do you know what DBS means ? Dead Bl..dy Serious. This machine exudes testosterone,sensuality,grace and pizazz.Five hundred and ten stallions will hold you in your seats with tears in your ears speeds (topless)the car,that is.The V12 will be whisper quiet,with just the right amount of growl,subdued,to announce ...P O W E R R R.

IMHO the Citroën 2CV (FYEO) is BY FAR the coolest Bond car ever! It also features in one of the better car chases in the series, although some part are played for laughs (it is a Roger Moore movie after all) most of the action is pretty serious.If I could take home any bond cars,I choose 2cv. I might be biased of course because when I was young my distant uncle in uk had several 2CV over the years. Other cars I like: -As said before, the Lotus -Some of the villains cars of the early movies like Lippe's car and that of Viona Volpe in Thunderball. -Can't leave out the DB5 of course. -Worst Bond "car" in my opinion: The Moonbuggy from DAF

Reputation is what men and women think of us and hence to be in their thoughts I would take home my favorite Bond car Aston Martin DBS which will increase my reputation.. Driving a powerful and beautiful car on the roads attracts everyone’s attention and there are ample chances of getting beautiful women as hitch hikers .Men will hate me and women will love me for owning the unique Aston. Even though the Aston Martin is a straightforward car, not to discredit the uniqueness and specialties of Bond cars I will have my Aston fixed with following gadgets, scanners on the front , rear and the wings to detect dangers (humans and equipments ) , powerful lasers to demolish all sorts of obstacles. And of course it will be bullet proof. The secret agent code 007 will be etched on the wings in golden letters as a tribute to the agent James Bond. Viva James Bond, Viva Aston Martin.

My family had a Bond car. It was a Renault 11. It was a terrible car, I hated it because it always brokes down... But I can say nowadays to ladies that we had a Bond car, and all of them thinks that we owned an Aston Martin. :)

The Aston Martin DBS from Casino Royale would definitely be the bond car I'd choose to buy should I win the lottery -- although I'd probably just buy all of them if I did win though :) Damn you for making me choose :D

Aston Martin DBS – Casino Royale


Posted by A.k.a. (7/11/2012)

My favorite car is Aston Martin Vanquish because of its beautiful design, its super finished interiors and for its 6000 liter super speed engine I am very eager to have it after winning huge lotto's.


Posted by Ernest (7/11/2012)

Definitely the the Austin Martin DBS in Casino Royale - Each car in every Bond film is one to dream of. Great publicity for the cars in question - overnight they are instant gadgets to want. Great way to put forward.


Posted by Kabo (7/11/2012)

I was blown away when I saw the Lotus Esprit convert into a sub in 'The Spy Who Loved Me', but the car that is top of my shopping list when I win Euromillions is definately the Aston Martin DBS. I can already smell the leather in that baby's interior. The engine also sounds very good.


Posted by Boris (7/11/2012)

Casino Royale - Unique elegant Aston Martin DBS!

Aston Martin DBS is the car which I dreamt. Now when I do not have a bike nothings happens but when I get anything I will buy Aston Martin DBS I like three things of the car the V12engine that brings a full 510 horse power, 5.9 liter 48- value & the model of the car. It is my dream car. My dad wanted to have a car but he’s no more but now I want to have a car & a house for my son and if I get sometime it’s defiantly going to rain that day.


Posted by Guntis (8/11/2012)

Aston Martin DBS – no doubts!!! My favourite Bond car - elegant design, innovative manufacturing, nowaday luxury sports car without equal. When, this Friday I will win Euromillions jackpot, I definitely would buy this and then I would put on nice suit, drive to work, go to boss office, fix oneself Vodka Martini “shaken, not stirred” and tell him: My name is Guntis, Guntis G(…) and you are FIRED!!! Drink my cocktail: tastes good!!! Go back to the car hit the pedal to the floor, make out AM DBS sound and then get lost from the smoke. Let my dream comes true :)!!!
