Welcome to MI6's own Q-Branch

The infamous Q-branch is the R & D division of MI6. They are responsible for some of the coolest toys, gadgets, and cars ever put on film. These are a few of my favorite cars from the films.

Aston
Martin DB5 The Aston Martin DB5 is the most famous Aston Martin car due to its use by James Bond in Goldfinger (1964). Although Ian Fleming had placed Bond in a DB Mark III in the novel, the DB5 was the company's newest model when the film was being made. The car used in the film was the original DB5 prototype, with another standard car used for stunts. Two more modified cars were built for publicity tours after the film's release. In January 2006, one of those cars was auctioned in Arizona for US$2,090,000. The same car was originally bought in 1970 for 5,000 from the owner, Sir Anthony Bamford, by a Tennessee museum owner. [1] The other car is located in the Netherlands in the Louwman Collection Museum.
Lotus Esprit The Lotus Esprit and its underwater exploits are second only to the DB5 in the Bond car hall of fame. To escape a rocket-equipped helicopter Bond (now played for laughs by the bouffant-ed Roger Moore) drives the Esprit off a pier into the sea, where it transforms into a submarine at the flick of a switch and blows up the helicopter with its own rockets. More underwater action ensues, until Bond emerges victorious on a beach full of holidaymakers. Six cars were used to film this sequence, one of which was a working submarine with two divers.
Aston Martin
DBS Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ulrich Bez, said: "Aston Martin is proud of our long association with James Bond. The Aston Martin DBS has its own unique character whic equals that of James Bond as it delivers the complete driving experience and bridges the gap between our road and track cars - the Aston Martin DB9 and Aston Martin DBR9. It is equally at home on a twisting mountain circuit as on the open road and we are all very excited at the prospect of seeing it on the big screen again.
BMW Z3 BMW Z3 Featured in GoldenEye BMW Z3Became controversial as the first non-British car that was used as Bond's primary mode of transportation. They chose a BMW because Aston Martin hadn't come up with anything new lately and the British car Market at the time was going downhill. Features: self-destruct system and stinger missiles located behind the headlights. was also remote control
BMW 750il BMW 750 il Featured in Tomorrow Never Dies, the bulletproof 'beemer' came equipped with a security system that would deliver electrical shocks to would-be thieves unlessBMW 750il disarmed by Bond's mobile phone. The car also had a security compartment in the glove box that wouldn't allow anyone access without Bond's (played by Pierce Brosnan) fingerprint. The 750il could be controlled remotely via Bond's cell phone (naturally), which opened up to show an LCD screen displaying the driver's view of the car. Weapons included rockets mounted in a hidden hatch in the roof, self-sealing and re-inflating tires, a cable cutting device in the front hood emblem, tear gas sprayers and caltrops that dropped from the bumper. BMW 750il - James Bond Features: bulletproof, had a remarkable security system in which intruders would be electrocuted unless it was disarmed by Bond's mobile phone, had an electronic glovebox with a fingerprint scanner, can be controlled completely by Bond's mobile phone which had an LCD screen that had a driver's view of the car, a cable cutting device in the front hood emblem, tear gas sprayers, and caltrops that dropped from the bumper
