As gorgeous as Pierce Brosnan is, I have to say that his character's gadget-packed BMW Z3, 750iL and Aston Martin V-12 Vanquish were even sexier (and those were just Brosnan's Bond cars — it would take more than just a few posts to complete an ode to pre-Brosnan Bond cars). While I may be the only woman who feels that way, it's no secret that 007's cars come just short of upstaging the famous agent himself. As is probably true with Brosnan, the V-12 won't make it to the next movie, so in Forbes' Vehicle of the Week column, the magazine offers up its suggestions for the next Bond Car.
Forbes' picks: Aston Martin V-8 Vantage, Bentley Azure, Bugatti Veyron, Jaguar XK, Rinspeed Splash.
While the idea of a British car seems fitting, the Vantage isn't different enough from Die Another Day's V-12 Vanquish, the Bentley is more AARP than 007, and the Rinspeed Splash is too obvious for its own good. My vote is the Bugatti – sexy, imaginative and more futuristic than the XK.
Whatever make and model the studio goes with, it certainly has some big tires to fill.
