Brosnan or Moore? Dr No or Live and Let Die? Everyone has their favourites. One thing that is consistent about these films is that there are some seriously cool cars featured. From the iconic Aston Martin DB5 to the DB10 via the Lotus Esprit and BMW Z8.

And with No Time To Die finally hitting cinemas, we thought it would be a good time to round up some of the best gifts for James Bond fanatics.

The ultimate book for any James Bond petrolhead, this book is jam-packed with Bond car trivia.

What you need to know about James Bond's cars:

What cars are in the new movie?

As with all of Daniel Craig's outings as Bond, Aston Martins will be plentiful. Just from the trailer and snippets of information online the DB5, Valhalla, DBS Superleggera and classic V8 Vantage will be appearing in the movie.

We'll also see the Land Rover Defender, Range Rover Sport and Classic as well as the Series III feature in the film. We also spotted a Maserati Quattroporte IV driven by the baddies too.

What is the best Bond car?

Chris Williams champions the classic Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me and the gorgeous Toyota 2000GT from You Only Live Twice.

Adam Binnie sticks with a baddies car, choosing the menacing Jaguar CX-75 as driven by Dave Bautista in Spectre.

I meanwhile strongly believe the Aston Martin Vanquish from Die Another Day is the ultimate Bond car. The rest of the film aside the Vanquish bits were cool as hell.
