All the 007 movies have this special formula that seems to be working very well. The role of James Bond always goes to the most popular actor; the hottest and most relevant actresses accompany him, and the secret agent must use at least five different gadgets. And, of course, there’s always a special car.

There have been so many sweet Bond rides throughout the years that it’s hard to narrow down the most iconic ones. But we still tried!

1. Sunbeam Alpine — Dr No, 1962

The first Bond car was naturally English. The Sunbeam Alpine we see in the movie was rumored to have been borrowed from a local to cut the shipping costs.

2. Bentley Mark IV — From Russia With Love, 1963

An amazing choice for a special agent’s car, isn’t it? Even though the spy was equipped with the most modern gadgets, at the time of the release, this model was 30 years old. Not really the most modern choice, but Bond drove Bentley in Fleming’s books, so it needed to be done.

3. Aston Martin DB5 — Goldfinger, 1964 and No Time to Die, 2021

James Bond’s first Aston Martin was the sublime 1963 DB5, which became iconic and being featured in multiple movies like GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall, and, of course, 007’s most recent adventure — No Time to Die.

4. Toyota 2000GT — You Only Live Twice, 1967

It’s hard to imagine a better car for You Only Live Twice when the movie is set in Japan, as the 2000GT is considered the first Japanese supercar. Fun fact: Sean Connery didn’t fit in a hardtop car, so they had to make Toyota a convertible.

5. Mercury Cougar — In Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 1969

When Bond was on the run, and there were no Aston Martins around, he had to drive a Mercury Cougar, which turned out to be a tricky but very stylish car. He showed some amazing tricks on the ice track.
