What if James Bond drove budget cars?

We’re used to seeing the infamous James Bond in some of the world’s most impressive cars. The new Bond film, ‘Spectre’, which is in cinemas now, is no exception. In Bond’s latest escapade, Daniel Craig gets to drive an Aston Martin DB10, while the film’s villain, Mr Hinx, has the pleasure of putting a Jaguar C-X75 through its paces. The cars really are just as much a part of the film as the actors and usually feature in some truly spectacular chase scenes.

Bond notoriously likes to travel in style – every mode of transport he uses oozes class and sophistication, whether they’re supercars or speedboats. Throughout his illustrious career, 007 has driven (and wrecked) an impressive range of enviable supercars, from numerous Aston Martins and BMWs to a Lotus Esprit and a Ford Mustang…and who can forget Little Nellie?

But what would happen if MI5 had enough of Bond’s lavish taste and placed the spy on a bit of a budget? Imagining Bond racing through the streets of London not in a Ferrari but a Skoda, we can’t help but smile.

Unable to resist a challenge, Bond would most definitely make the best of a bad situation. The evil villains pursuing him, however, may not be able to take him seriously if he was attempting to escape in a Honda CR-V or a Skoda Yeti. It would completely change the look and feel of the Bond films. Here are some classic budget cars and what Bond might look like driving them.
