    I’m tempted to say DBS was used best. Then DB5. DB10 was certainly underused

    DBS no question! Don’t care for the 69 Aston Martin too much.

    Have to answer this in 3 parts.

    NTTD
    QoS
    CR
    SF*
    SP

    *Not a chase, but even no chase is better than Spectre.

    Best usage:

    QoS
    NTTD
    SF
    CR
    SP

    Best looking:

    DB5

    long line of nothing

    This is really hard.

    Best chase:

    NTTD/QoS

    I can't separate these two, for Quantum the pace is frenetic, the roar of the V12 glorious and scored to the one of the best pieces of music the series has ever had. And the final reveal that recontextualises the scene is the cherry on top... But NTTD is better edited, there's a better sense of place, and what a place. The music here is no slouch either when the DB5 deploys the machine guns and runs rings around the baddies has that child-like wow factor. I think what puts this level-pegging though is the emotional heavy lifting that Seydoux and Craig do.

    CR

    Short and sweet, it's adapted from the novel which gives it legitimacy, the only thing I can fault it on is the roll, which is impressive, but because I know it's Millbrook Proving Ground from watching too many episode of Top Gear it does take me out of it a bit. Which is more of me problem but there we go.

    SP

    In principle, I don't hate it, but like the Aston v Jag chase in Die Another Day what you think would be cool, the whole fire vs ice dynamic just is a bit boring in reality. I think Spectre does try better in that regard, the gadgets failing, 009's questionable music taste and Bond being so unfazed with it he can have a conversation with Eve in the middle of it. It strips the tension sure but it could play better for comedy if Hoytema's wash didn't strip all the life and bombast out of the visuals.

    SF

    Apart from the Land Rover right at the start Skyfall doesn't have a car chase as such does it? I think the door mirrors are a nice establishing character moment for Eve and Bond. As for Silva chasing the DB5 up the A9, the DB5 is a glorified cameo that I don't really enjoy in Skyfall.

    Overall QOS have moost various mix of cars from Daniel Craig era and i like that.

    Taxi scene from QOS (Fields introduction at airport), what always remember me to DR No/FRWL.
    QOS Car Chase from beginning. 7 years later in 2015 i was in a bus who drive on place who was stil in making in QOS.
    Goodbye Aston Martin DB5 in Skyfall.

    I like car chase from Spectre. Whyle i think DB5 should not have return, i like time spin of the wheel (Race Against the clock) scene from NTTD a lot.

    Alternate Game takes from QOS and NTTD

    He’s had a pretty great run of cars, and I wish the DB10 had taken off as his signature car. It’s a great looking thing and I think the idea of Bond having a unique car is a fun one. But it didn’t really become ‘his’ car I don’t think; I think his main car is the DBS. He drove it twice, and somehow it just suits him more with all of its spoilers and vents: like him it means business.
  • QBranchQBranch Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

    Agree with that. Despite the DB5 getting the most screentime, I'll always consider the DBS thee CraigBond car. Plus it's the last 'amazing' design imo.

    The DBS suited Craig well. It was modern, athletic, and muscular, yet still classic.

    I wish they hadn’t returned to the DB5 beyond the Easter egg purposes it served as Bond's personal car in GE and TND, though I get how it factors thematically into Skyfall.

    I guess the DB10 didn’t make as much of an impression on me. Maybe it was just how it was used in SP or that the nighttime setting didn’t show it off the best.

    I’d rank the chases featuring Bond’s car as follows:

    QOS
    NTTD
    CR
    SP

    I prefer when each Bond/era has their own unique car:

    Connery: Aston Martin DB5 (GF, TB)
    Lazenby: Aston Martin DBS (OHMSS)
    Moore: Lotus Esprit (TSWLM, FYEO)
    Dalton: Aston Martin V8 Volante (TLD)
    Brosnan: BMW Z3/Z8 (GE, TWINE)

    The Aston Martin Vanquish was used well in DAD, but I'd have preferred if Brosnan had stuck to BMWs, and I wish the DB5 hadn't taken over as Craig's main car. I'm not some big car enthusiast, but I hope they go with something over than Aston Martin for Bond #7 and give him his own unique car to really set him apart the way LALD set Moore's Bond apart in so many ways.

    Funny, I agree. The Vanquish was really the only proper gadget car of Brosnan's run, the only one given a proper set piece of its own; and yet you're right, I see the Z8 more as 'Pierce's car'. Maybe it's because it's more unique?
    I think the Vanquish is a fantastic looking thing, but I guess it is ultimately another silver Aston.

    every car that daniel drives is the best car because he's the best bond.

    It is a great looking car, and the battle with Zao's Jag on the ice is a blast. I guess the return of the Aston Martin does actually fit DAD, given how loaded the film is with references to past eras for the anniversary.
