James Bond Vehicle History Infographic

JamesBondCars01

If you are even a remote fan of James Bond you will love this infographic about the vehicles that he has driven over the decades. There isn’t a man out there that doesn’t want to be James Bond, life on the edge, the women, the mission, the gadgets & weapons, and especially the cars. This infographic is fantastic but surprisingly its missing two important cars, one is the introduction of the hugely controversial and successful BMW Z3, it was the first Bond movie without an Aston Martin and at the time the vehicle was not released, I remember thinking it was so cool in Golden Eye. And the other vehicle is the BMW E38 750iL, which was so tricked out that can’t take out anyone and anything, I remember it was one of the first movies for a real car to be controlled by remote control and Pierce Brosnan was controlling from his phone, I just loved that and the car could take anything. For cars that had such an impact I’m surprised they are not on the list but the infographic is fantastic.

My Favorite Bond Cars:

  • Aston Marting V8 Vantage Volante
  • Aston Martin DB5 (All Of Them)
  • BMW Z8 (Still One Of My Favorite Beemers)
  • Lotus Espirit Turbo

Exotics Racing – Las Vegas

When in Las Vegas one of the top things on my list to do was to go to Exotics Racing. The best choice of high end vehicles to drive all in one stop and for a relatively cheap price for what you could do with these machines. Have a choice of several super cars and for a bunch of guys its like a kid in a candy store. I have always wanted to drive a Scuderia on a track before since I have heard that it’s just an amazing machine to drive. Then there are so many other beautiful machines, and you have these amazing track instructors with you. There is also a drift ride in a Corvette Z06, and they go through 10 sets of tires a day for that corvette. Honestly the whole thing was a hell of a lot of fun for a cheap price.

You get in the car you chose, you get about 5 laps per car and you have a combination of vehicles if you want. In my case I only want to drive of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia, some of my friends took the Ferrari F430 F1 and the Lamborghini LP560. The is endless, you have all these vehicles on the track: Lamborghini LP640, Lamborghini LP560-4, Ferrari F430 F1, Ferrari F430 Scuderia, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, and Porsche Carerra. The only thing they were missing was a Porsche GT3 or Turbo, but they have every thing else you could imagine. You jump in the seat and the trainer gets in the car with you, you would think they would tell you take it easy, but in my case the guy made me floor the gas and turn hard, and at time I thought I was going to spin out but it held on. I was loving every moment of it, the only thing I wanted was a bigger track to enjoy some more high speed turns then this short one. All the driving range from $200 to $500 which depends on the car and combinations, I would recommend it for anybody going to Las Vegas and they are supposed to be opening in Los Angeles soon, I’m just hoping its going to be very soon.

Aston Martin Rapide

Calling this machine a sedan is an atrocity, is it just me or is machine beautiful, I really think that Aston Martin have done an amazing job turning this machine in a four door sports car with beautiful lines. The interior is sporty yet very comfortable, and it has the rumble of that 470 bhp engine which sounds damn good. This video pretty much says it all, you can enjoy it on the track and long drives. I would still think the Lamborghini Estoque is the best looking four sports sedan to come to market yet, and thats a machine I’m looking forward to seeing.
