And one marque that is synonymous with the 007 films is none other than Aston Martin

To sum it up, these were some amazing cars. One thing that all of them have in common is the way they look. To put it in a word, Sensational. I know we all have our favorites and for me, it’s the DB10 from Skyfall. The fact that it wasn’t a full-fledged production car and only a handful of them were made, just makes it extra special. Having said that the most popular Bond car by far has to be the DB5, having appeared in six Bond films.
