In the “Skyfall” James Bond DB5 used to bring down the trail of the main villain movie, armed with a laptop and specific knowledge in the field of IT. On the one hand, the emergence of Aston Martin DB5 – a nod to the tradition and the last film in the James Bond series, on the other hand, the use of this classic sports car – pretty nifty plot device. The fact is that modern cars are equipped with navigation or all equipped with radio beacon, which allows anti-hero to be aware of such movements even supersekretnogo agent like James Bond. Also, the filmmakers ‘Skyfall’ Bond seated behind the wheel of Jaguar and Mercedes S-class. An interesting story at the expense of Jaguar and the James Bond movies, we moved to a separate post. The fact is that in the distant 60th James Bond producers were serious talks about shooting the car with the two manufacturers – Aston Martin and Jaguar, but whether in Aston Martin’e were more compliant, or whether they were more fortunate than Jaguar’u that in many films Bond spoke on the sidelines. Also in the film we see the Land Rover Defender, well, just the occasional role is fulfilled cars as Volkswagen Bettle, who flew in this very Defender, being dumped from the train platform.

By the way, in some movies, James Bond do without a car. For example, in the film “Live and Let Die” in 1974, cars play a modest role, and the role of Bond vehicles serves no car, bus, motor boat and plane. However, in the film you can see almost the entire Chevrolet line of the early seventies, which may allude to the involvement of bondiane concern GM. In the film “Moonraker” (1979), “Never Say Never” with Sean Connery (1983) or “License to Kill” (1989) with Timothy Dalton as 007. True Sean Connery sits on a motorcycle Yamaha XJ 650 Turbo Seca, and the enemies in the Bond movie “License to Kill” ride the Maserati Biturbo, as well as the Jeep CJ-7.
