DRIVE ANOTHER DAY: 10 James Bond Cars You Wish You Owned

Every Secret Agent needs a ride.  Preferably a car with heated seats, bulletproof glass and . . .  the ability to be invisible. To help, here’s a list of the 10 James Bond cars you need to have in your garage.

Let’s be honest – your car is fine.

It has great gas mileage, plenty of cup holders and ample trunk space.

But you know what it doesn’t have?

Rocket launchers in the headlights.

But James Bond is here to help with the 10 coolest Bond vehicles you need in your garage.

 

10. Jaguar C-X75 from Spectre (2015)

Spectre James Bond Jaguar Car

Why You Need It: With a light carbon-fiber build, this Jaguar can go from 0 – 60 in under 3 seconds.  Perfect for those emergency Fro-yo runs.

 

9. Toyota 2000 GT from You Only Live Twice (1967)

You Only Live Twice James Bond Toyota

Why You Need It: Credited as the “first true original Japanese sports car,” it also comes equipped with a full screen video-chat-enabled monitor in the dashboard, so you never have to miss another Facetime call from mom.

 

8. Jaguar XKR from Die Another Day (2002)

Die Another Day James Bond Jaguar

Why You Need It: With a gatling gun attached to the back capable of firing over 2000 rounds a minute, you’ll never get cut off in traffic again.

 

7. Aston Martin DBS from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

On Her Majesty's Secret Service Aston Martin James Bond

Why You Need It: It’s the classiest “Just Married” car money can buy.  Just learn from Bond’s mistake and install bullet-proof windows.

 

6. Rolls Royce Phantom III from Goldfinger (1964)

Goldfinger Rolls Royce Phantom

Why You Need It: If you’re not the driving type and prefer hiring a (deadly hat-throwing) chauffeur, you can’t get more refined than the Rolls Royce.  Solid gold hood ornaments also recommended.

 

5. BMW 750iL from Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Tomorrow Never Dies BMW James Bond

Why You Need It: This BMW can be steered entirely from your phone.  Now you can give your friend a ride to the airport without ever leaving the comfort of your bed.

 

4. Aston Martin Vanquish V12 from Die Another Day (2002)

Die Another Day Invisible Car James Bond

Why You Need It: Whether you want to covertly speed down the shoulder of the freeway or simply avoid traffic cameras, you can’t go wrong with an invisible car.  Just don’t forget where you parked it.

 

3. Aston Martin DB10 from Spectre (2015)

Spectre Aston Martin Car

Why You Need It: Custom made by Aston Martin to celebrate its 50 year history with the Bond franchise, the DB10 is one-of-a-kind.  Which is why you (and only you) need to have it.

 

2. Lotus Espirt S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

The Spy Who Loved Me James Bond Car Underwater

Why You Need It: A sports car that converts into a fully functioning submarine, complete with a torpedo launcher.  Perfect for avoiding bridge traffic.  Bond Women seem to like it too.

 

1. Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger (1964)

Goldfinger James Bond Car Aston Martin

Why You Need It: The first pairing of James Bond and Aston Martin can’t be beat.  No amount of gadgets can top true timeless style. But this one also comes with oil spray in the taillights.  Just in case.
