No matter whether it's Connery or Moore, or the current man at the helm, Daniel Craig, James Bond is not a man to shy away from driving a top class car. We take a look at five our favourite classic motors that 007 has had the pleasure of driving.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
After a short spell driving the Lotus Espirit, Bond (played by Timothy Dalton) returned to drive the Aston Martin V8 Vantage in The Living Daylights. Of course, the car included the standard 007 gadgets, such as missiles and lasers.
Ok, so maybe it's not technically a car but James Bond driving a tank, how can that not be featured in our list? We've all wanted to do this, and 007 (played by Pierce Brosnan) causes havoc by stealing a tank in GoldenEye.
Aston Martin DBS
A more modern car to sit alongside the classics, the Aston Martin DBS is the car of choice of the most recent Bond. The DBS was driven by Daniel Craig in both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
A car that doubles up as a submarine? Only in Bond. The Lotus Espirit, nicknamed "Wet Nellie" was driven by Roger Moore in the 1977 Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me.
Aston Martin DB5
The Aston Martin DB5, is by far the most recognisable James Bond car. No matter whether you were around in the 60's or not, you will have seen the iconic images of Sean Connery with this beauty, from the movie Goldfinger.
