Iconic Bond Cars Throughout The Years

The name is Bond, James Bond. As iconic as this dialogue is, so is the legacy of this cult series. And every time the name Bond is mentioned, not only does it stir timeless memories of all the actors who made the silver screen come alive, but it also triggers a wave of emotions attached to all the bond cars over the years. So here are 7 of the most iconic Bond cars over the years.

  1. Aston Martin DB5

    If the Aston Martin DB5 doesn’t top the list of the most iconic bond cars, the list isn’t credible at all. After all, the DB5 will forever be the typical Bond Car. Much like Bond, the DB5 has gracefully aged over the years. First appearing in Goldfinger, the DB5 has since then made several appearances on the silver screen. Loaded to the brim with all kinds of gadgets from hidden artillery to ejector seats, Aston Martin’s decision to loan the franchise a developmental prototype became one of the best decisions the company ever took. No matter who played the character – the DB5’s appearance was assured. And this is how the vehicle became immortal, all set to return to the silver screen with No Time to Die.

  2. Lotus Espirit S1

    Back when the S1 arrived in The Spy Who Loved Me, it was considered to be the Ace up Bond’s sleeve. After being indulged in a hot car chase on land, the Espirit S1 plunged underwater transforming into a submarine, giving the franchise one of the most iconic silver screen moments. Driven by Roger Moore, the Spirit S1’s submarine scene made it indeed an immortal vehicle, with people vividly remembering the underwater chase to date.

  3. BMW Z8

    The BMW Z8

    Back in the 90s, Bond decided to break away from the tradition and chose the BMW Z8 as his ride in the film The World Is Not Enough. The last vehicle to be customized to the core by the iconic Q team, the vehicle had some super cool touches onboard. As iconic as the vehicle was, the fans were devastated when it met a tragic end, cut in half by helicopter blades.

  4. Ford Mustang Mach I

    The Ford Mustang Mach I

    Quite an unusual choice for Bond, the Ford Mustang Mach I played a crucial role in the film Diamonds Are Forever. What made the vehicle quite iconic was the hot chase that took place downtown Las Vegas, where the vehicle became the only Bond car that was temporarily driven on two wheels – in a rather unscientific manner. But who cares?

  5. Aston Martin V8 Vantage

    With Timothy Dalton reprising the role of Agent 007, Aston Martin made a comeback, with a custom V8 Vantage Volante, which was also the last version to draw upon the DBS design language. It came loaded with a plethora of weapons including missiles, lasers and even a rocket afterburner. The vehicle also features in the latest film No Time to Die.

  6. AMC Hornet

    The AMC Hornet

    A rather unlike choice, the AMC Hornet was a result of a record-setting 5 Million Dollar advertising deal that the American manufacturer struck. As a result the American sports car featured in The Man with the Golden Gun with Moore behind the wheels. At first, the Hornet seemed to lack essential Bond equipment. But that was until the iconic 360 degrees twisting jump was showcased. The stunt is still considered to be the top 10 bond stunts of all time. The AMC Hornet played a crucial role in making the movie as well as the scene immortal.

  7. Toyota 2000 GT

    Toyota 2000 GT

    Dubbed as Japan’s first supercar, the Toyota 2000 GT is one of the rarest cars in the world. The vehicle appeared in You Only Live Twice with Japanese Intelligence Agent Aki behind the wheels displaying some hot driving skills, highlighting the GT’s capabilities. But what makes the vehicle iconic is the fact that Toyota had actually converted the 2000 GT into a roofless version within 2 weeks’ time to make it a fit for Connery’s height.

    So these were 7 of the most iconic bond cars ever. Stay pinned to the GoMechanic Blog, while you book your tickets for No Time to Die.
