Whether you’re a car enthusiast or a movie fan, you probably know a thing or two about Agent 007 and his Aston Martin affinity. However, more often than not, the average petrolhead can’t afford the latest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera or an icon like the DB5. Don’t fret, super fans; these affordable James Bond cars (and one motorcycle) can make you feel like 007 without the bloated price tag.

Granted, a low-mileage BMW Z8 or Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is out of the question for most franchise fans. However, not every James Bond car is prohibitively expensive. Instead, fans can pick up one of these 007-driven rides and still have enough in their bank account to go to the movies.

Unsurprisingly, the BMW Z3 Roadster from “Goldeneye” is among the cheapest ways to get into a James Bond car. According to, fans can find an early Z3 Roadster for around $12,758. However, if you’re willing to shop for a higher-mileage four-cylinder example, you can get one for under $10,000.

Even though the film crew uses stretched BMW 740iL models for filming, Desmond Llewelyn (Q) referred to Bond’s BMW as a 750iL in the movie. Either way, the sedan is a posh BMW luxury car you can get for well under $15,000. Of course, you won’t get rockets or caltrops in yours. If you want to take your James Bond car off-road, you could pick up a 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser. In “No Time to Die,” Bond drives a 90 Series “Prado” across Norwegian landscapes.

Ok, so it’s not a car. However, it still merits an honorable mention as the newest vehicle Bond piloted while still being affordable. It’s the Triumph Scrambler 1200, a hiked-up, knobby tire-wearing motorcycle featuring the creamy-smooth Bonneville 1200cc parallel twin. Better yet, committed fans can find the “Bond Edition” Scrambler, complete with 007 logos and the like.
