Every James Bond Car Ranked Worst To Best
By JUSTIN OWEN
Bajaj
In "Octopussy," Bond is eluding henchman Gobinda through the streets of Delhi in a three-wheeled tuk-tuk powered by a 10-horsepower 200cc engine. The Bajaj, not the most glorious vehicle Bond ever used in a chase, has handlebars and hits a top speed of about 35 mph, per the manufacturer.
Renault 11
When 007 commandeers a taxi near the Eiffel Tower in “A View To A Kill,” it is a 1985 Renault 11, an unlikely escape vehicle, but one well suited for a chase through the tiny urban streets of Paris. Not much of Bond’s car is left after the top is removed and the rear half cut off by hazards in the streets.
Citroën 2CV
Bond takes his yellow Citroën 2CV down a Spanish hillside on a torturous path to escape assailants in the famous 1981 "For Your Eyes Only." The actual movie car was fitted with a 4-cylinder engine, but the director still had to take some liberties to live up to 007 standards, per Auto Express.
Land Rover Series III
In 2021’s “No Time To Die,” 007 is retired on Jamaica, driving the proper retirement vehicle – a classic Land Rover Series III. Known for traversing dense jungles in Asia and crossing the vast savannah of Africa, the Series III, built from 1971 to 1985, is an evolution of the original Land Rover.
AMC Hornet Hatchback
The 1974 AMC Hornet from "The Man With The Golden Gun" is not an official MI6 car, but one quickly acquired in service to her majesty when Bond is chasing assassin Scaramanga, who is escaping in an AMC Matador that transforms into a plane. The film-used Hornet sold at Sotheby's for $110,000.
