    The DBS? Could that be an AMV8 with the VanquishS engine tossed in?



    I think the AMV8 is too small to fit the Vanquish S engine....



    When there's a will there's a way-after all, it's only 4 more cylinders.

    Wait, who's the new James Bond? I could have sworn it was going to be the guy who was the main character in the BMW short films. He was "The Man".



    Is Daniel Graig "The Man" ur talking about? cuz he's the new 007.






    Man, I was really hoping for Clive Owen. He seems like the perfect James Bond. He has the sophisticated british accent, and looks like a James Bond IMO. Too bad, I hope Daniel Craig is good.

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    One of the original group of four James Bond cars, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 coupe, chassis no. DB5/2008/R used in the promotion of Thunderball and Goldfinger will be auctioned today at the RM Auction in Scottsdale, AZ. It is being sold for the Smokey Mountain Car Museum in Tenn.
    UPDATE: The DB5 sold for $2.1 million.

    Also of interest, at the nearby Barrett-Jackson Auction being televised on Speed TV this week is a 2003 Aston Martin AR.1 roadster, serial no. 1 of 99 made. I think it will be up on Saturday.

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    My parents went to Barrett Jackson's auction last year and my father bid on a car (he knew he wasn't going to win it, he just wanted to have fun). He enjoyed the whole thing... so did my mother (amazingly.... she knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about cars).

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    ISUK, nice to meet another Bondophile
    Connery is THE Bond IMO.
    In fact, he is THE man IMO.
    I always said, that if Connery turned out to be gay, I'd swop sides, too...
    SC is the last real man left.

    Bond is British, as British as they come - at least as British as the movie industry likes to sterotypically portray a Brit. AM is as British a car as it gets.
    Furthermore, the biggest Bond movie of them all - 1964 Goldfinger - features an Aston Martin DB5 (and so does 1965 Thunderball). One of the most innovative single gadget in movie history IMO.

    Be it an AMV8 a Vanquish or DB7---as long as it's an AM for Bond I'm fine

    As for the new Bond.
    Personally I think he is as poorly casted as can be, but let's see. he may surprise us.

    Oh man, we should have a bond forum in here...hours of entertainment

    Two of my favourite JB quotes:

    [From Goldfinger. JB to later golden girl Jill Masterson played by Shirley Eaton]
    "My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs".

    [From Diamonds are forever]
    James Bond: Pity about your liver, sir. Unusually fine Solera. '51, I believe.
    M: There is no year for sherry, 007.
    James Bond: I was referring to the original vintage on which the sherry is based, sir. 1851, unmistakable.

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    Dr Phil,

    My favourite line is in Diamonds are Forever when Bonds says to Tiffany "collar and cuffs"

    ps Of course SC is the best Bond, like myself he is from Edinburgh

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    My fav. line is I thought Christmas comes only once a year...... PB talking to Christmas Jones (Denise Richards)

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    Thank God BMW is no longer Bond's car - what a joke those years were

    Re: Casino Royale 007

    "You expect me to talk, Goldfinger?"

    "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."

    That's the funniest one imo!!!!!!!!!!!

    Edinburgh? Oh, then you'll have no problem pronouncing this the right way:
    In "Never say never again" Bond girl/villain Fatima Blush [Barbara Carrera] splashes Bond (SC) soaking him. "Oh, I met you all wet".
    SC: "But at least my Martini is still dry."

    Not SC's finest hour...that toupe looks like roadkill.
    Glad he ditched it later.
