But if Stamp had a ten year plan, then while he might have just pencilled in ‘Years five though ten – let’s hope that there are some great movies released with cool cars in them’, that’s unlikely. More likely is that he’s got his eye on cars from movies past, and while we’ve got our speculation hat on, we’re going to add ‘Ten year plan’ to ‘Aston Martin DB5’ and get ‘James Bond subtheme’.
We might be wildly off of course, but it’s not an unreasonable assumption, so we plundered 007’s back catalogue of cars and came up with a list. Some of them obvious, some of them a bit left-field. Chris Stamp, if you’re reading – crack on! We’d like to see all of these, please!
5 – Aston Martin DBS

But the Z8, a rare car at the best of times, had a little more style and pizazz. While it didn’t get much screen time, it’s a cool looking car, and would fit nicely into any 007
1 – Lotus Esprit
With the DB5 already accounted for, there was only ever going to be one car making the top slot. From The Spy Who Loved Me, the white Lotus that transformed into a submarine is one of the most memorable cars that Mr Bond has ever driven. At
As lifelong Bond fans, we’re just dreaming here, but if there really is a ten year plan for
