Best in-car Bond gadgets

Every car from MI6’s famous Q Branch had a host of hi-tech goodies at James Bond’s disposal. Here are six of the best…

Ejector seat: Goldfinger

The DB5’s ejector seat was used to catapult a baddie, who thought he had captured Bond, from the car at high speed.

Remote driving: Tomorrow Never Dies

The BMW 750iL looks ordinary next to 007’s other cars, but then they can’t be driven by smartphone.

Rocket booster: The Living Daylights

When an Aston V8 isn’t powerful enough, this booster rocket helps Bond jump buildings and baddies.

Invisibility: Die Another Day

Bond’s cars emulated technology of the era, and this 2002 Vanquish used cloaking to become invisible.

Submarine car: The Spy Who Loved Me

Perhaps the ultimate MI6 creation, as Bond heads underwater to escape from the bad guys.

Missiles: The World Is Not Enough

Bond’s BMW Z8 is kitted out with surface-to-air missiles, which are used to shoot down a helicopter.
