Alongside the movie it featured in and the actor who drove it, they have also taken notice of the finer details such as:
  • It’s array of gadgets
  • Time on screen
  • Number of people killed
  • Number of Crashes

Bond’s Deadliest Vehicle: Lotus Esprit S1
The Spy Who Loved Me Driven by Roger Moore, it features in possibly the most memorable Bond scene of all time, as it turns from a car into a submarine. Fully equipped with a cement sprayer, submersible mode, surface-to-air missiles, black dye slick, mines and torpedoes, the Esprit managed to rack up an impressive 8 kills, 3 crashes, 3 explosions, alongside destroying a building and a helicopter all in the space of 6 minutes and 55 seconds on screen – impressive work!
Bond’s Most Favoured Car: Aston Martin DB5
Having already featured in 4 Bond films so far, the DB5 has been confirmed to make yet another appearance in No Time To Die, making it the most iconic Bond car of all time.
To prove why it really is the best of the bunch, Leasing Options found that the DB5 from Goldfinger racked up the longest time on screen (10mins, 21s) and held the largest collection of gadgets including:
  • Bulletproof Windows
  • Rotating Registration Plates
  • Homing Device & Tracking Display
  • Smoke Screen
  • Oil Slick
  • Rear Bulletproof Screen
  • Dual Machine Guns
  • Ejector Seat
  • Tyre Slashers
In fact, it’s so great, it sold for $6.4 Million when it went up for auction last year.
Deadliest Bond's:
Rank   Actor Kills Crashes   Explosions  
1 Roger Moore 23 52 7
2 Sean Connery 13 26 9
3 Daniel Craig 11 37 5
4 Pierce Brosnan 8 58 30
5 Timothy Dalton 2 6 7
6 George Lazenby 1 2 1


Most Lethal Bond: Roger Moore
Having featured in 7 Bond films its no surprise that Moore has killed more people behind the wheel than any of the actors across their Bond careers. With 23 kills, 52 crashes and 7 explosions it is a well deserved title, if not a little surprising given he is possibly the most aloof and seemingly harmless James Bond of the lot.
The Most Destructive Bond: Pierce Brosnan
Brosnan takes the title for the most reckless Bond behind the wheel, having caused 58 crashes and an impressive 30 explosions across just 4 films. That’s an average of 14.5 crashes and 7.5 explosions per film. Meaning that over 8 and a half hours worth of screen time as Bond, Brosnan was averaging a crash/explosion for every 6 minutes of film!
