Bond Cars Elimination Game

Alright, so I decided to make another elimination tournament, but an easier one where I didn't have to keep track of anything. So here are a bunch of Bond cars, starting off with 30 points, and we play with the traditional +1/-2 system.

The criteria for the cars is this: they have to be the most prominent car driven by Bond or his Bond girl in their respective films, and they have to be cars, not trucks or tanks.

Participant rules are simple. You can vote any number of times, but only once per day. You can vote +1, -2, or both in any one vote, but you can only vote one of each (so you can't vote two "-2's" or two "+1's", etc). However, you can split your -2 into two different "-1's". So you can vote +1 for X, -1 for Y, and -1 for Z. Or you can just vote +1 for X and -2 for Y.
So here's the list:

Sunbeam Alpine II - 30

Aston Martin DB5 - 30

Toyota 2000GT - 30

Aston Martin DBS V8 - 30

Mercury Cougar - 30

Ford Mustang Mach 1 - 30

AMC Hornet - 30

Lotus Esprit S1 - 31 (+1)

Citroen 2CV - 30

Alfa Romeo GTV6 - 30

Renault 11 - 30

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante - 30

BMW Z3 - 28 (-2)

BMW 750LI - 30

BMW Z8 - 30

Aston Martin Vanquish - 30

Aston Martin DBS - 30

Aston Martin DB10 - 30

I've started off by taking 2 off the BMW Z3 (terrible piece of product placement) and added some points to the Lotus Esprit (just for that awesome transformation into a submarine and back). Fire away, people!

    I love Italian cars. So I'll vote for the Alfa.
    The Sunbeam is too cheap-looking for my taste.

    @GoldenGun - Sorry, but it's +1, not +2. The minus is two, the plus is one. However, you can split your minuses into two different "-1's".

    @ForYourEyesOnly You're new here, so I'll give you the heads up- you need to get the approval of the game's creator (myself) and a moderator before making one of these +1/-2 elimination tournaments. The list of unplayed games and their creators can be seen <a href="http://www.mi6community.com/index.php?p=/discussion/8997/so-you-want-to-start-a-new-elimination-game/p33">here</a>, in which we suggest a game and cast a vote for the next one. Also, I intended all prominent Bond cars to be included in this game, so please add to the list the DBS from OHMSS and Vanquish from DAD.

    Ah, okay. And I'm surprised I forgot them, I was meant to have them anyway.

    @For YourEyesOnly - I've got the AMDB5 at 32, the list above missed my +1 and I've got the Z3 at 22, the list above takes a -2 potshot at the Z3 but still leaves it at 26, so I've now rectified this and put it at 22

    Ah, yes, sorry. Of course the DB5 deserves love, but I suppose I don't want to help it win (which it probably will end up doing if Bond fans are predictable). Good to see the Z3 dying first, though.

    @GoldenGun - Nooooo the banana car!

    Anyway, could you change the Aston Martin DBS V8 to 31? I gave it a +1 but forgot to edit the actual number, just like the Z3. Tanaka edited the Z3 for me but forgot about the DBS.

    As this game seems to have fizzled out already, I think we should close it for now and decide on the next game to play in the new games thread?

    Agreed, it was premature. No DB5 ejacualation point intended.

    Or rather, it was.

    I think we need to ensure that people add the day to the top of their daily choices to ensure only playing once per day.

    Yes this would be wise, or my desire to get rid of the Z3 may get the better of me :)

    I will be shocked if the DB5 wins this one?!! ;)

    I'm not a huge car guy, so I'm having a tough time knowing which cars are from which movies.

    This one's a no brainer. Gotta give it up for the DB5, and although the Vanquish is a really nice car, the adaptive camouflage nonsense is just too much.

    I was hoping people wouldn't give points to the DB5 so early so this might actually be interesting.
