Celebrate 50 Years Of James Bond's Rides: Video


In five decades worth of movies, Bond, James Bond has driven everything from a heavily armed (and equally armored) Aston Martin DB5 to a Lotus Esprit that doubles as a submarine.

If you’re only familiar with more recent Bond films, you’ll probably recognize his Aston Martin DBS, which hits the block later this month at an upcoming Christie’s auction. If you want to park this particular Bond-mobile in your garage, pre-auction estimates put the selling price between $160,000 and $230,000.

It’s worth pointing out that Bond has driven some decidedly non-British cars over the years as well. There was the remote-control BMW 750iL that Bond drove in Tomorrow Never Dies, and the Ford Mustang Mach 1 that he drove on two wheels in Diamonds are Forever.

Speaking of two wheels, Bond is a proficient motorcyclist as well, showing off his talents on a BMW R1200C in Tomorrow Never Dies, on a BSA Lightening in Thunderball and on a Kawasaki Z900 in The Spy Who Loved Me.

Then there’s the fleet of boats he’s liberated over the years, alongside the airplanes and helicopters he’s “borrowed.” If you want to keep track yourself, Twentieth Century Fox is releasing all 22 James Bond films on Blu-Ray later this month.

As for us, we’d be more than content to get the keys to a single Bond vehicle. If we got to choose, we’d pick the iconic Aston Martin DB5. Like James Bond, some things never go out of style.
