Τα πιο cool αυτοκίνητα του Τζέιμς Μποντ όλων των εποχών









1. 1963, Απο τη Ρωσία με αγάπη


Ian Fleming was a vintage Bentley owner and made it 007's car of choice in the original Bond books. His c.1936 beauty in <em>From Russia With Love</em> was equipped with a radio telephone.



2. 1964 , Goldfinger

This Bond car was fitted with machine guns, an ejector seat and a host of other Q Branch gadgets. It made a triumphant return in Skyfall and sold for $4.6 million in 2010.


3. 1964, you only live twice

One of the coolest Bond cars ever, the rare Japanese exotic was specially modified to accommodate the lanky Sean Connery -- the roof was removed.


4. 1969, On her majesty 's secret service

Of all Bond's Astons, this is our favorite -- simply stunning. George Lazenby drove it in his single, and vastly underrated, appearance as 007.


5. 1971, diamonds are forever


The only American car in Bond's stable, it actually belongs to Bond girl Tiffany Case in <em>Diamonds Are Forever</em>.


6. 1977, the spy who loved me


With the amphibious Lotus Esprit in <em>The Spy Who Loved Me</em>, Bond production designers created the only car to truly rival the DB5 for icon status. Elon Musk paid $860,000 for one of them in 2013.


7. 1981, for your eyes only

Not the sexiest car in Bond's stable by any means, the "tin snail" is also the slowest. However, it made for one of the more memorable chase scenes in the series.

8. 1981, for your eyes only

Eschewing the Citroen, Bond breaks out another awesome Lotus on the ski slopes of Cortina. Unfortunately he finds a dead body inside.


9. 1983 octopussy

The only Italian car on the list, Bond steals it from a woman in a phone booth for a high speed chase in Germany. A very affordable classic these days for anyone looking for a little 007 action.

10. 1987, the living daylights

Bond's return to Aston Martin in 1987 saw Timothy Dalton take the wheel of a gadget-laden V8 Volante. Another underrated favorite of ours.<br />


11. 1997, tomorrow never dies

Bond's brief flirtation with BMW began in the late 90's and didn't last terribly long. Pierce Brosnan uses a cell phone to drive the high-tech 750iL -- off a roof, alas.<br />


12. 1999, the world is not enough

Brosnan-as-Bond is forever linked to BMW, giving him a sort of yuppie-ish air. That and his Italian suits from Brioni. <br />

13. 2002, die another day

<em>Die Another Day </em>saw in the modern Aston Martin era, and the Vanquish did not disappoint, with bulletproof bodywork, heat-seeking missiles and more. <br />

14. 2012, skyfall

Driven by Miss Moneypenny, with Bond riding shotgun, so to speak, the Defender qualifies for the list thanks to its cult-like status. Too bad Land Rover is discontinuing it. <br />


15. 2015, spectre

The DB10 represents the future of Aston Martin's road cars, and we're only too glad to have 007 test it out for us. On screen, it more than holds its own against Bond's other rides. Well done, James. <br />


Cool cars have, of course, always been a big part of the super spy's image. Here's our pick of the best cars featured in the franchise.
