Cars & Vehicles

Throughout the Bond series James Bond has been provided with various cars and vehicles with 'optional extras' installed. "Ejector seat? You're joking!" - one of the many lines audiences have enjoyed during Bonds briefing from Q on his latest vehicle.

As time has progressed, so has technology installed by Q-branch. In the early films Bond was fighting off the villains using oil spills and smoke screens in his Aston Martin DB5. More recently Bond has been employing the latest in adaptive camouflage, mobile remote control and GPS satellite navigation in his cars. Q-Branch has not just modified cars either, they have provided Bond with a variety of weird and wonderful vehicles throughout the series. Bond has used the agile Acrostar mini jet in Octopussy, the unusual Iceberg submarine in a View To A Kill and the outrageous Hovercraft gondola in Moonraker.

However Bond isn't the only one who has been using modified vehicles. Since Dr No's basic Dragon tank to Zao's gadget-laden Jaguar XKR, the villains have proven they can compete with the best of Q's inventions. It can be guaranteed that whether Bond is driven, drives, or encounters these vehicles, audiences will continue to enjoy future vehicles to come. §
