    Quoting Mr_Sterling:
    im with the school of thought that Bentleys are being ruined by the crass, bling-loving 'celebs' of our age...same with rolex et al
    Quoting The_Man_From_UNIVEX: Great car ruined...
    Paris Hilton (et al.) also appears to be a biped. Is that also ruined?

    a great car, but not for bond, and it would be stupid to give him one, since there have only ever been 77 of them produced :$

    Actually, when you take stunt driving into account, they'd have to give him, like, eight. ;)

    From my point of view, there's not mutch Choice but an Aston Martin. The Bentley's, as described, have got an image of "rich kid's car", so, as sad as it is, the "executive" feel is gone as far as the Continental GT isConcerned. What wíll be a good car, i hear you all ask? ( silently..?)

    Anyone remembers Bond being a "banker" in TND?

    Now, I know a lot of people wil start arguing about how bond isn't supposed to be driving a Saloon, but just imagine. It's classy, elegant, and if you put your foot down it will leave any henchman's used vauxhall or Mercedes behind. Also, looking at the standard "equipment", such as the LCD-screen and the control button that rises out of the center console, it's easily Q-branch-able...

    All we need now, is a good cover written around it for Bond ;)

    Bond has totalled 4 cars in the last 5 films (crashing into car agency, cuting it in 2, doing barrel rolls, taking the side door out.) Can the car not be destroyed this time 'round ?

    Well, maybe so, but i don't like a Bond film without a great and dangerous car chase, and without this, may just take the film down for me a bit, i mean yeh, his car doesn't have to get damaged in it or anything, but if he is in danger of death, it makes it more exciting and sometimes more memorable. To me anyways :')

    And above that, i've never seen anyone being chased by bad guys, driving at high speeds, evading them and the car not having a single scratch mark... ;)

    And, also to avoid crashing the car, how about a Non-car chase? Think of GE's Tank chase, CR's tanker truck mayhem etc. ?

    I'm just dying for a scene similar to Moore waving the fish when the car comes out of the water from TSWLM... priceless, cool, memorable, and utterly cult scene !!

    So Bond must be injured by a bullet in the next one. No way can someone not be hit after thousands of bullets aimed at him.

    As a matter of fact, i've been saying that for quite a while now. Even hís luck must run out some time, in the form of a bullet in his leg? in TB he got Shot to, i quite "liked" that, added a little bit more realism.

    Anyway, back to the cars.

    DC007 has something with the Morgan...

    How about the 4/4 Sport?

    The Virage is available as both a coupe and a convertible, so in all probability it will be that. I quite like the idea of Bond in a big saloon though, the Jag XJ 5.0 V8 Supersport, would be my preference.

    I think we'll have to wait for Bond 24 until we see a Lotus, preferably the new Esprit.

    Has to be an Aston, thats bonds car

    I read once that the DBS was at one point in it's production altered to fit Daniel Craig's style, and was not changed back, not even for the actual buyable road-going cars. So if this is true, then the Aston Martin DBS is truly a Bond car. :)

    An Aston Martin DB5. Preferably, with the the "Q modifications" being used. I would love to see those weapons finally being used since, I believe Thunderball.
