For all classic car experts, no single person on earth embodies what every classic car owner secretly desires to be than Bond…James Bond.   In honor of the release of the new James Bond movie, “Skyfall” we look back on some of the best cars featured in James Bond movies.  All of these cars are also some of the most popular classic cars shipped overseas from the United States.

ASTON MARTIN DB5 – Featured in Goldfinger, Goldeneye and Skyfall

The one thing that is consistent about James Bond is that he always looks good. And he never looked better than when he was driving a Aston Martin DB5.  The name James Bond is almost synonymous with Aston Martin.  As experts in international car shipping, we love to ship Aston Martin’s to our lucky clients overseas from the United States.

In the latest James Bond installment, “Skyfall”, Daniel Craig brings back the classic 1964 Aston Martin DB5…and then blows it up.


LOTUS ESPIRIT S1  – Featured in “The Spy Who Loved me” and “For Your Eyes Only”

Ever been in a submarine?  How about a car that turns into a submarine? Of course James Bond would never be caught in the ocean without a fancy ride, and in  The Spy Who Loved Me, Bond drove a Lotus Espirit S1 straight into the water.  Forget purchasing a submarine, nothing is better than buying and shipping a Lotus overseas from the USA.  But don’t try and be like Bond… we’ll handle the ocean transportation….


Only in a Bond movie could a Lotus Espirit turn into a submarine…


FORD MUSTANG MACH 1 – Featured in Diamonds Are Forever

One of the best car chases in the Bond franchise is in Diamonds Are Forever when Bond drives Tiffany Case’s supped up Ford Mustang Mach 1.  The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic and coveted American cars.  It should come as no surprise that Ford Mustangs are one of the most popular cars shipped overseas from the US.

BMW Z8 – Featured in The World is Not Enough

In The World is Not Enough James Bond drove through Azerbaijan in a sporty BMW Z8. Aston Martin was put to the side in a few installments as BMW made a bid to be featured prominently in the franchise. The car was classic James Bond…sporty, fast and flashy, but like most cars featured in the Bond movies, it met its untimely death when it was slashed in half by a helicopter.

ASTON MARTIN DBS – Featured in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace

James Bond always introduces the next top sports car before it hits the market, and this was the case for the Aston Martin DBS.  The Aston Martin made its return to the Bond franchise and made sure to reenter the franchise in true fashion.  In the chase scene featured in Casino Royale the car barrel rolled a record setting 7 times.

ROLLS ROYCE SILVER CLOUD – Featured in A View to a Kill

A Rolls Royce is the true definition of  luxury when it comes to classic cars. The Rolls Royce Silver Cloud was featured in 1985’s A View to a Kill.  James Bond fans were left at the edge of their seat when Bond was left unconscious in the car and left for dead in a lake.  But James Bond is too smart for that…after sucking on the air from the tires Bond escapes without a scratch.


Bad guys can try, but they can’t take down Bond, not even if they try to kill him in a Rolls Royce
