With the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, due for release in the UK on 26th October, we thought it would be fun to share an infographic which explores the history of Bond cars and their vehicle-related gadgets.

Skyfall is much less of a car-fest than recent movies, such as ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’, but it will still be a petrolhead’s delight, not least because we’ll see the return of Bond’s trusty 1964 Aston Martin DB5.

Other cars to look out for include a Range Rover Vogue TDV8 SE – for official MI6 duties, while Jaguar’s long-wheelbase XJ provides a tranquil means of transportation for ‘M’.

Land Rover’s venerable Defender will be used in some of the ‘chase scenes’, while the Evoque will also make an appearance.

With Adele performing the theme tune and Daniel Craig back for his third instalment as 007, Skyfall is set to be one of the best Bond films of recent times – let’s just hope the vehicle gadgets are as cool as ever.
