    Athena Stamos and ‘Star Cars’ visited this year’s Comic-Con on a reconnaissance mission, which provided some sensational detail about Mr Bond’s more intriguing modes of transport. And we don’t mean the cable-car of  ‘A View To A Kill’ here.

    An exclusive look at four wild screen-used vehicles from the lethal world of 007, including an interview with their maker.


    If you were at Comic-Con this year, you might’ve seen these cars from behind a velvet rope. But Athena Stamos got up-close and personal to declassify the top secrets of not one but four of the most outrageous vehicles James Bond has ever driven (or faced). In celebration of 007’s 50th anniversary on film and the upcoming Blu-ray set, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment enlisted the help of the Ian Fleming Foundation to display a different Bond car each day of the Con. We even chatted with Andy Smith, builder of some of the vehicles as well as the Tumbler seen in The Dark Knight Rises. For your eyes only in the vid above.

    Vehicles covered in this video include the Aston Martin V8 Vantage from The Living Daylights (1987), Q’s Jet-Boat from The World Is Not Enough (1999), a Para-Hawk from The World Is Not Enough, and Zao’s Jaguar XKR from Die Another Day (2002).

    A new Star Cars episode premieres every other Thursday. Be sure to follow Star Cars on Facebook for more exclusive content.
