Recently I was looking for information on 007’s cars from John Gardner’s books and was surprised to find that a definitive list doesn’t appear to exist.
While the Saab 900 Turbo is well known from this era, it is a long way from being the only car Bond drives and the “Silver Beast” itself only features in three books out of sixteen.
Of course, a couple of Gardner’s books were novelisations, and so his hands were tied in respect to Bond’s car, but given that I could not find such a list, I decided to compile one instead.
Curiously, whereas the early books make much of Bond’s cars, as the series progresses he is often driven; these cars I have not included.
Saab 900 Turbo (rented)
Saab (rented, model not stated)
BMW (rented, model not stated)
VW Corrado (rented)
BMW Z3 Roadster (from the film, model not stated in the novelisation)
Ford Taurus (rented)
Hopefully the list is complete, but should you find any errors or omissions please let me know either by email or in the comments below.
