From jaw-dropping gadgets to sleek handsome suits, how much does Bond cost the taxpayer? A wardrobe consisting of Savile suits, Dupont cufflinks, Persol sunglasses, Omega watches and Church shoes, James Bond on clothing alone has accumulated 26,750 British Pounds in expenditures. Move onto his fancy cars and one will be astonished by the price tags. Between his two Aston Martin’s ranging from 200,000 to 300,000 British Pounds, one can easily afford a stunning house instead.

James Bond’s training alone cost an estimated 850,000 British Pounds while his annual salary only is 100,000 British Pounds. The most astonishing statistic is the amount of damages paid out each year by tax payers. If 007 were real, we would be looking at paying out 1.4 million British Pounds a year.
