The Definitive Bond Car book you need in your life

66 Magazine contributor and BBC Top Gear Magazine Editor at Large, Jason Barlow, is also one of the world’s most qualified James Bond Car aficionados. His latest book, Bond Cars: The Definitive History is timed to coincide with No Time To Die and makes for an ideal gift for the Bond fan in your life.

Jason’s turn of eloquent turn of phrase puts you behind the wheel of every car driven by 007 on film.

When he’s not contributing from Europe to 66 Magazine, Jason Barlow is the Editor at Large of BBC Top Gear Magazine, but he’s also arguably one of the most knowledgeable experts on Bond Cars. In other words, a busy man who drives a lot of cars, writing about a busy man who drives a lot of cars.

Originally published to coincide with Bond’s latest, No Time to Die, before the pandemic scuppered the film’s launch dates, Jason’s book is now very much on the essential gift giving list for any Bond fan in the household.

 

Jason’s general automotive knowledge is prolific and blended with a passion for the Bond franchise and an incorrigible wit make for a truly entertaining look at what is the ultimate history of the Bond car, slip cased and beautifully presented, with exclusive facsimile material from the Bond archives.

This bespoke, 336-page collector's edition features an envelope of exclusive posters and documents from the EON Bond archives.

 

Bond Cars: The Definitive History is a lavish celebration of the cars that also became the stars alongside the world's most famous fictional spy.

To say it’s a deep dive is truly an understatement. All vehicles from the Bond back catalogue including No Time to Die, are covered and the four-wheel stars are brought to life with rich features like exclusive and priceless assets such as the original call sheets, technical drawings and story-boards, accompanied by previously unpublished photography and exclusive interviews.

 

Jason’s turn of eloquent turn of phrase puts you behind the wheel of every car driven by 007 on film.

 

With insights from the producers and keepers of the Bond flame, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli as well as Daniel Craig and special effects and action vehicles supervisor and veteran of 15 Bond films, Chris Corbould, this is the story of cinema's greatest icon, told through the prism of the legendary cars he has driven.
