James Bond Coolest Cars Models
“Die Another Day” saw James Bond reunited with an Aston Martin after a three film stint with BMW. The 55 million dollar delay secured Bond in a Ford owned brand for the next few films. The first in 2002 saw 007 behind the wheel of a new Aston Martin – the V12 Vanquish.
The car is equipped with all the usual refinements, including front-firing rockets, hood-mounted target-seeking guns, spike-producing tires, again and a passenger ejector seat in homage to the original Aston Martin DB5, but used here in a clever bit of improvisation by 007 to right the car when it’s been flipped onto its roof. The Aston was also equipped with “adaptive camouflage” – a cloaking device that allowed it to become effectively invisible at the push of a button. This vehicle was also featured in the video games Nightfire (2002) and Everything or Nothing (2004).
The metallic gun metal grey finish is flawless across the metal body. Two plastic components are an off colour – the rear bumper and front grill bumper surround. This is also true of the removable roof section that fits tightly.
The trunk its finished in a black flat plastic, and a fire extinguisher can be found modeled into the detailing of the boot. All four seats are formed out of hard plastic with clean detailing. Both rear seats have soft seat belts that have been stretched over them. Clean modelling and silver detailing can be found on the inner panels on the doors and along side each of the rear seats.
