Like its theme songs, leading ladies and lethal gadgets, James Bond cars are as iconic as the glamorous British movies themselves.
In its 23 films, spanning 53 years, the franchise has featured luxury vehicles from names like Audi, Jeep and Vauxhall -- not to mention its canonization of Aston Martin as a lust-worthy car. Glitzy, high-speed James Bond cars have become as much a part of the suave spy character as his unusual cocktail order.
This new book by Frederic Brun chronicles the history of James Bond cars in full-page photographs. Vehicles are divided into Heroes, Villains and Other Machines -- a section which includes jet-packs and gondolas. 'James Bond Cars' is a perfect addition to the coffee table of any 007 enthusiast.
