Something a bit different for this week: since this weekend's big release involves "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul driving cars at ridiculous velocity in NEED FOR SPEED, it seemed like a perfect opportunity for a demolition derby between a couple of the most iconic vehicles in cinematic history -- James Bond's Aston Martin and the time-traveling DeLorean from the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy. Start your engines!
Bond: "Where's my Bentley?"
Q: "Oh, it's had it's day, I'm afraid."
Bond: "Well, it's never let me down."
Q:"M's orders, 007. You'll be using this Aston Martin DB5."
Q then lists off the numerous offensive and defensive gadgets installed in the car before arriving at his favorite.
Q: "Now, this one I'm particularly keen about. You see the gear lever here? Now, if you take the top off, you'll find a little red button. Whatever you do, don't touch it!"
Bond: "And why not?"
Q: "Because you'll release this section of the roof and engage and fire the passenger ejector seat."
Bond: "Ejector seat? You're joking!"
Q: "I never joke about my work, 007."
Doc: "Yes, the way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
To demonstrate, Doc loads his faithful dog into the vehicle and, via remote control, revs the engine and sends the DeLorean hurtling up to 88mph... at which point it disappears into the spacetime continuum, leaving only flaming trails on the pavement.
- bulletproof windscreen and rear shield
- tire-shredding blades
- passenger ejector seat
- oil slick
- smoke screen
- revolving number plate
- GPS dashboard
- water cannons
- hover conversion
- Mr. Fusion home energy reactor
- whitewall tires
(The Aston Martin DB5 was also driven on screen by Roger Moore and George Lazenby, but in non-007 roles)
But a DeLorean that can travel through time? AND fly? The biggest nerd in the world would immediately become supercool in that stainless steel wonder of engineering and questionable science!
