In 1985, they launched the James Bond film, A View to Kill. This was a final 007 film by Roger Moore. There was talk that it was the last film by Roger, as he started showing his age dramatically. One thing we know for certain is that he walked out in style.
The 1959–1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II was essentially the original Silver Cloud with a different engine, and the new 6.2-litre light-alloy V-8 from Rolls-Royce was said to have been inspired by the 1949 OHV unit from Cadillac.

As Timothy Dalton was cast to play the iconic character, James Bond also got a new face in this movie. After an 18-year hiatus, Aston Martin returned to this film. This car looks almost exactly the same as the Aston Martin DBS appearing in Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969). This might explain why the brand eventually discontinued the 1968 DBS.

BMW Z8 (1999)

Although the Ford Fairlane isn’t nearly the fastest Bond car and isn’t packed with gadgets, it was great for the scene, you must admit. The Ford Fairlane featuring 2 doors convertible body type with Rear wheel drive does have looks to Die Another Day, this car being famous for much other reason for some being a classic car to a petrolhead who enjoys manual 3-speed gearbox with the power of 144 hp.

The modern car takes over from the 2004 Aston Martin Vanquish S as the brand’s flagship. It was officially unveiled on 2007–08–16 at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and production began in 2008 Q1.
As the world got its new James Bond in Casino Royale(2006), the producers decided to stick as the official Bond car with Aston Martin. That makes perfect sense; Aston Martin is associated with Bond by many. Daniel Craig became the franchise’s face and offered Bond a whole new look. The films have lost many of their gimmicky qualities while still retaining their 007 demeanour.
