750IL during the movie Tomorrow Never Dies. Throughout the years, the weapons and gadgets
that have come from the hands of the Q Branch, has never turned James Bond down, they are
the coolest and are the best in spy paraphernalia. If someone would try to compare Bond's
gadgets to gadgets of the military, Bond would win ten to one.

but many of the classic gadgets are still obsolete in a technology driven world we live in
today. For example, Bond's old Aston Martin DB5 can out run a Ferrari 355 F1 Spider that

Probably the only weapon James Bond will never forget is his trusty handgun. His Walther
PPK has stayed by his side since

he was injured when his old berretta jammed during a mission. The PPK stands for Polizei
Pistole Kriminal and was made by Waffenfabric Walther of Zella Mehlis. (Blair and Tarassuk
379) It used a 7.2-millimeter bullet and the gun has also been called the Walther PP7. It
is enclosed in a strong steel casing and packs a punch like a brick being thrown at a
window. Another reason why it is a choice for James Bond is that it can be fitted with a
silencer that reduces the noise of the gun for those really discreet missions.

Next, if you are the world's most sophisticated secret agent, then you better drive like
it. That is why Bond drives an Aston Martin. (The Complete James Bond Interactive Dossier)
This England based company that is owned by Jaguar Motor Company has been making very fast
and luxurious sports cars for the past century. This beautiful gold DB5 is the first car
that he was received in the movie "Goldfinger". (The Complete James Bond Interactive
Dossier) It had a bullet proof screen in the rear, tire shredders that came out of the
wheel, machine guns in the headlights, and a passenger ejection seat that was controlled
by a hidden button in the gear shift knob. Bond has also driven other cars such as his
Lotus Espirit, that could turn into a

submarine, machine guns in the license plate, and a self destruct for all car burglars.

moments, cutting lasers in the wheels, and could be converted to a snow mobile which the
flick of a button. Now to the cars of the future, starting with the BMW Z3, that was
driven in the movie "Goldeneye". It had a beautiful Atlantic Blue color that was
completely mesmerizing. (Internet BMWUSA) It also had a self-destruct mode and stinger
missiles in the headlights, but they were not used. The second edition to Bond's BMW
collection was his fully armed and armored BMW 750IL in the "Tomorrow Never Dies". (BMW
USA www.bmwusa.com) This car had spikes hidden inside the rear bumper, missiles in the
sunroof, bulletproof glass, wire cutter in the BMW emblem. To top all of this off, Bond
had the luxury of leather and wood grain in the interior to put the final touches of this
popular automobile. Currently in the movie "The World is not enough," Bond sports the new
BMW Z8 roadster that is about to be released as a production car in the U.S. in the
upcoming month. (BMW USA www.bmwusa.com)
