10 of the Best 007 Cars to Hit the Big Screen

10. Ford Fairlane

Originally appeared in: Die Another Day

Actor who played Bond: Pierce Brosnan

Although the car appeared only momentarily in the movie, it somehow reflected how James Bond would use the right equipment at the right place at the right time. The Fairlane was perfect for the picturesque Havana backdrop and lifestyle he had.

9. 2015 Aston Martin DB10

Originally appeared in: Spectre

Actor who played Bond: Daniel Craig

The DB10 was introduced in 2015’s Spectre. As an homage to the DB5, it is still a two-door coupe with an entirely new and sleeker body. This also marks the 50th year of partnership between James Bond and Aston Martin.

8. 2006 Aston Martin DBS V12

Originally appeared in: Casino Royale

Actor who played Bond: Daniel Craig

In 2008, James Bond received a makeover with a slightly bulkier and grittier actor in Daniel Craig. Along with the reboot, the DBS V12 was introduced with less sci-fi-ish gadgets and more realistic equipment.

7. BMW Z8

Originally appeared in: The World Is Not Enough

Actor who played Bond: Pierce Brosnan

When actor Pierce Brosnan took up the mantle of the British super spy, audiences applauded his portrayal of the character. Along with the new face of the franchise, a new partnership was born between James Bond and BMW. The Z8 appeared in Brosnan’s third Bond movie.

6. 1985 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante

Originally appeared in: The Living Daylights

Actor who played Bond: Timothy Dalton

While fans didn’t take a liking to Timothy Dalton’s take on the character, they did get a treat with the reappearance of Aston Martin after an 18-year hiatus from the films.

5. 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II

Originally appeared in: A View To A Kill

Actor who played Bond: Roger Moore

In what was Roger Moore’s final James Bond movie, the creative minds behind the movie decided to let him go out in style by driving a classy Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II.

4. 1976 Lotus Esprit S1

Originally appeared in: The Spy Who Loved Me

Actor who played Bond: Roger Moore

The Lotus Esprit S1 is, hands down, one of the coolest cars the franchise has ever featured in one of the most exciting Bond films of all time. A vehicle that runs fast on the ground and beats bad guys underwater? What more could you ask for?

3. 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Originally appeared in: Diamonds Are Forever

Actor who played Bond: Sean Connery

The movie Diamonds Are Forever had the super-agent in one of the most action-packed car chase scenes in 007 movie history. While technically not a Bond-car, James Bond drove the car during the entire chase scene down the streets of Vegas.

2. Toyota 2000 GT

Originally appeared in: You Only Live Twice

Actor who played Bond: Sean Connery

James Bond’s first film in Japan makes it a suitable vehicle — pun not intended — to carry the first-ever Japanese’ supercar. Since actor Sean Connery is too big to comfortably fit in the supercar, Toyota modified it to be a convertible.

1. 1963 Aston Martin DB5

Originally appeared in: Goldfinger

Actor who played Bond: Sean Connery

As iconic as Agent 007 is, the franchise would not be complete without our beloved Aston Martin DB5. In fact, the DB5 has become quite an icon itself that’s closely associated with the super agent.

We can’t wait to see what cars our favorite agent will be driving in the following installments of the movie series.
