The 007 Car Pool

Lovely bit of nerd info here from – just the things I like to know about.
Nothing added on the DB10, but I am sure it will be soon. 



Vehicle - Bentley Mark IV Bentley 3½ Litre – Featured in the film From Russia with Love. Presented to the public in September 1933, it was the first new Bentley model following Rolls-Royce‘s acquisition of the Bentley brand in 1931. A drophead 1935 Bentley 3½ Litre was briefly featured in the 1963 movie From Russia with Love as Bond’s first Q-Branch equipped vehicle.
Vehicle - Blower Bentley 1930 Bentley 4½ Litre (Blower Bentley) – Featured in the novels Casino RoyaleLive and Let Die and Moonraker. The Bentley 4½ Litre is a British sports car built by Bentley Motors and is famous for epitomizing prewar British motor racing. The Blower Bentley was Bond’s first vehicle.
Vehicle - Bentley Mark VI Bentley Mark VI – Made in 1953, Bond purchases his second Bentley towards the end of the novel, Moonraker. Like his previous Bentley, the Mark VI is grey with dark blue leather upholstery. After Moonraker this model is never mentioned again.
Vehicle - Bentley Continental S2 Bentley Mark II Continental – This Bentley was featured in the novel Thunderball and is Bond’s final Bentley. Bond upgrades the engine from a 4.5 liter engine to a 4.9 liter. The Mark II was also grey, however, the interior was black leather. The Mark II Continental is last seen in the novel On Her Majesty’s Secret Service where Bond upgrades the vehicles once again with an Arnott supercharger controlled by a magnetic clutch. Bond dubs the car “the locomotive”.
Vehicle - Bentley Mulsanne Turbo Bentley Mulsanne Turbo – Bond purchases a Mulsanne Turbo in John Gardner’s Role of Honour. The car is British racing green with magnolia interior. It is outfitted with a long-range telephone and a hidden weapon compartment.

Aston Martin

Vehicle - Aston Martin DB5 Aston Martin DB5 – Featured primarily in Goldfinger. The most famous Bond car of all, it came with all the usual Q-Branch refinements which have been copied from movie to movie including bulletproof front and rear panels, oil slick, smoke screen, machine guns, rotating licence plates, telescoping tire slashers, tracer-receiving console and most famously, the passenger ejector seat. While being the most recognized Bond car, it’s actually only been featured in six films (GoldfingerThunderballGoldenEye,Tomorrow Never DiesCasino Royale, and a nod to the Goldfinger version in Skyfall).
Vehicle - Aston Martin DB Mark III Aston Martin DB Mark III – Featured inthe novel Goldfinger. While referred to as a “DB III”, the “DB3” was a car designed specifically for racing and is unlikely that Bond would drive one. The DB Mark III is often called the DB III and is more comparable to its description in Fleming’s novel. This car was the only gadget-laden vehicle to be mentioned in the original Bond novels. It included switches to alter the type of color of the front and rear lights, reinforced steel bumpers, a Colt .45 pistol in a trick compartment under the driver’s seat, and a homing device similar to the DB5 in the film adaptation.
Vehicle - Aston Martin DBS 1969 Aston Martin DBS – Featured in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The car was seen in only four scenes, including the pre-credits teaser and as James & Tracy’s wedding car. Nothing is known about what kind of gadgets were installed, except that it had a hiding place for a sniper rifle in the glovebox. Obviously – given what happens at the end of that movie – it was not fitted with bulletproof glass.
Vehicle - Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante – Featured in The Living Daylights. A convertible, which was later “winterised” with a hardtop. Came with all the usual refinements including side skis, spiked tires, missiles, hubcap-mounted lasers, rocket propulsion and a self-destruct mechanism.
Vehicle - Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Aston Martin V12 Vanquish – Featured in the Die Another Day. Also dubbed the “Vanish” due to its ability to become invisible to the naked eye. The car is equipped with all the usual refinements including front-firing rockets, hood-mounted target-seeking shotguns, and passenger ejector seat that was a homage to original Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger.
Vehicle - Aston Martin DBS V12 Aston Martin DBS V12 – Featured in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. It has no Gadgets but compartments Containing a suppressed Walther P99, and some medical equipment, including a defibrillator, most likely based on the compartment under the seat in the novel Goldfinger.


Vehicle - Lotus Esprit S2 Lotus Esprit S1 (1976) – Featured in The Spy Who Loved Me. The S1 was fondly referred to as ‘Wet Nellie’ – a tribute to Bond’s autogyro, ‘Little Nellie’ from You Only Live Twice. As well as being amphibious, the highly armed car has cannons that spray cement on to pursuing vehicles. It also has wheel arches that turn into fins, a small periscope on the roof enabling 007 to navigate at speed underwater and its other weaponry includes a missile launched from its rear deck, mines, sprayed black dye, and torpedoes shot from the front grille.
Vehicle - Lotus Esprit Turbo Lotus Turbo Esprit (1980) – Featured in For Your Eyes Only, this vehicle was cosmetically similar to the S1, but mechanically different, as it exhibited no submarine capabilities. It was most notable for its remarkable security system, which detonated and destroyed the car when Gonzales’ henchman broke the driver’s window in an attempt to force entry into the car. Q Branch provided a second Turbo to Bond – in bronze instead of white – later in the movie.


Vehicle - BMW Z3 BMW Z3 – Featured in GoldenEye. A controversial choice for some Bond purists, it being the first non-British production car to feature in a Bond movie as the spy’s primary mode of transport. A convertible, it comes fully equipped with “all the usual refinements” including a self-destruct system and stinger missiles located behind the headlights. The car in the film is only driven briefly in Cuba, and Bond ends up trading it for Jack Wade‘s plane.
Vehicle - BMW 750iL BMW 750iL – Featured in Tomorrow Never Dies. Used in Germany, the 750iL could be controlled remotely via Bond’s cell phone. Defense mechanisms included a rocket launcher, re-inflating tires, a cable cutting device in the front hood emblem and a caltrop dispenser. The 750iL also came equipped with an advanced security system and a fingerprint-protected safe hidden behind the passenger airbag compartment.
Vehicle - BMW R1200 BMW R1200 – Featured in Tomorrow Never Dies. Stolen in Saigon, the BMW R1200 motorcycle was used in a chase sequence through the city and was ridden by both James Bond and Wai Lin of the People’s Republic of China.
Vehicle - BMW Z8 BMW Z8 – Featured in The World Is Not Enough. Equipped with “all the usual refinements” including ground to air missiles and a key chain that can control the car remotely. The car is sawn in half by a brush-cutter-equipped helicopter late in the film. So far in the film series, this marks the only occasion when Bond has expressed concern about Q being upset with James wreaking havoc on cars and equipment. Ironically, this takes place after Desmond Llewelyn makes his final appearance on the screen as Q.
Vehicle - BMW 520i BMW 520i – Featured in the Gardner novel Win, Lose or Die. During the course of the novel M prohibits Bond from taking his Bentley Mulsanne Turbo and recommends that he opt for a more subtle car from the company car pool; a BMW 520i in unobtrusive dark-blue.

Vehicle - Ford Mondeo Mk4 2006 Ford Mondeo ST 2.5 MkIV – Featured in Casino Royale. As part of a product placement, Bond drives a Mk IV Mondeo hatchback when he arrives in Nassau. Because the car was required for filming early in 2006, more than a year before it became commercially available, it was hand-built at Ford of Europe’s Design Studio in Cologne, Germany and shipped to the Bahamas under a veil of secrecy.


Vehicle - Saab 900 Turbo Saab 900 Turbo – Bond’s vehicle of choice in many of the John Gardner Bond novels, beginning with Licence Renewed.

If the car was actually called the “337,” Connery probably would have spelled out “three-three-seven,” as the British commonly do.
Vehicle - Rolls-Royce Corniche Rolls-Royce Corniche – Featured in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, a Corniche is owned by Marc-Ange Draco and is used to abduct James Bond.

Two of these basic auto rickshaws are used in a chase sequence through the streets of Udaipur – Bond and fellow MI6 agent Vijay being in one, with Gobinda and his henchmen in the pursuing vehicle.
