Top Gear 50 Years of Bond Cars

Top Gear presenter, Richard Hammond takes us on a journey that will delight any Bond lover. However, 50 Years Of Bond Cars is not just for car lovers or just for Bond lovers. It includes some very interesting pieces of Bond history that will delight any film fan.

Hammond takes a look at many of the Bond cars and the way in which they contributed to the film which they appeared in. Not only this, but also how they came to be in the film they were in as it isnít and never has been as easy as just browsing a showroom. He lets us in on a few movie secrets about the certain cars and takes us behind the scenes of the latest Bond film, Skyfall.

There are also exclusive interviews with Roger Moore and Daniel Craig, as well as with Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever director, Guy Hamilton.

In true Top Gear fashion, Hammond also tests to see if some of the more extreme features of the Bond cars will actually work in theory. He tests the Lotus Esprit which featured in the 1977 Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me in order to see if it really can work underwater and he also tests out the theory of an invisible car (or more like an invisible mini-van).

One great thing about this Top Gear special, is that it makes you want to watch all the Bond films all over again and start to watch them from the beginning if you havenít already. It makes you appreciate how much James Bond is a part of cinema history and makes you realise how much influence the series of films have had on society. They have made cars into superstars and have done wonders for the marketing of particular car companies such as Aston Martin.

50 Years Of Bond Cars is not like a typical Top Gear episode, as there is no Stig and no studio audience. However, it is no less entertaining.  The special plays out like a documentary which is supported by credible sources and interesting pieces of information about the Bond films and Bond cars. Top Gear fans will still enjoy it as it does contain the same method of intriguing experiments with the vehicles and Hammond is, as always, a great presenter who knows his stuff.

50 Years Of Bond Cars is great fun and is entertaining at the same time as being intriguing and informative.
