‘Some men just don’t like to be taken for a ride.’ / THUNDERBALL / 1965
The history of James Bond onscreen is the history of cars, vehicular stars, roadside glamour, asphalt adventure and automobile design.
As No Time to Die pulls up the garage door on all manner of new (and familiar) vehicular co-stars for Commander Bond, a plush new book details a new four-wheeled history of 007’s special relationship with his cars, highway sidekicks and racing lines.
Featuring exclusive access to the archives of EON Productions, Bond Cars – The Definitive History promises a dashboard of priceless assets, original call sheets, technical drawings, story-boards, previously unpublished photography and exclusive new interviews.
With new insights from producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, Daniel Craig and Visual FX supervisor and Bond car wizard Chris Corbould, Bond Cars – The Definitive History is a plush driver’s manual of cinema’s greatest icon told through the prism and rear-view reflections of his greatest wheels.
A collector’s edition of Bond Cars will be presented in a slip case and features exclusive posters and documents from the EON Bond archives.
