Honorable Mentions

CONNERY HONORABLE MENTIONS
›› The Ford Mustang convertible made its very first appearance on film in “Goldfinger.”
›› “You Only Live Twice” (1967) was set almost entirely in the Far East, and the feature car was Bond-girl Aki’s white Toyota 2000GT convertible.
›› Ford was again center stage in 1971’s “Diamonds Are Forever”—this time with Connery tearing up the Vegas Strip in a burly Mustang Mach I.

MOORE HONORABLE MENTIONS
›› In “Octopussy” (1983), Bond dallies briefly with a stolen Alfa Romeo GTV and a Mercedes 250 SE on train tracks (illustrating the perils of letting stunt coordinators script plot points).
››Chevy took center stage for Moore’s Bond swan song by providing a glitzy ’84 Corvette for a brief appearance in “A View to a Kill.”

BROSNAN HONORABLE MENTIONS
The DB5 made a welcome cameo in “GoldenEye.” It dices with villainous vixen Xenia Onatopp (Famke Jansen) in a Ferrari 355 Spider through a set of vicious switchbacks. So well received was the DB5 that it reappeared in “Tomorrow Never Dies,” and it was filmed for “The World Is Not Enough” but except for the closing credits, its scenes were edited out.

CRAIG HONORABLE MENTIONS
The DB5 shows up once again in “Casino Royale,” making it six appearances and counting— by far the most for any Bond car. Interestingly, the model featured is left-handdrive— a first for a Bond DB5.
