Bond Ve­hi­cle Col­lectibles £14.99

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Richard Gunn

For a book on 007 model cars, this 96-page tome hardly screams its con­tent on its front, a Mercedes 280 SL and Ford Capri rarely as­so­ci­ated with Com­man­der Bond. But that hints at the level of de­tail in­side, as this is about much more than just the sil­ver As­ton Martin DB5 and white Lo­tus Es­prit mod­els we’ve prob­a­bly all owned at some point. It looks at the as­sorted scale model man­u­fac­tur­ers and then trawls through the films, from Dr No to the most re­cent Spec­tre, look­ing at which ve­hi­cles were is­sued and by whom. It’s a handy ref­er­ence work for any­body want­ing to start col­lect­ing or com­plete their ex­ist­ing stock. The chap­ter de­voted to the many vari­a­tions of DB5 is es­pe­cially fas­ci­nat­ing.
