This looks to be the special as shown on television, which was enjoyable. I might have wished for slightly more time on the bit where they constructed a fully working Lotus submarine, but they were trying to keep the time of the show within an hour for broadcast.

The Product Details list a run time of 135 minutes though, which was over twice the length of the broadcast special. This suggested that there would be extras on this or would be an extended version of the special. The DVD though only lists a run time of 60 minutes and doesn't list any extras. Don't be fooled by the run time listing in the product details. Still, for the price it's not a bad deal.

I will admit I was a bit worried how this would come off. Top Gear, the premier motoring show in the world doing a special on 50 years of James Bond cars. I love Top Gear but to be honest some of their ‘specials’ come off as being done on the cheap and for yucks. Well I was rarely so glad to be so wrong. This time they did it right with intelligence and respect and style.

Richard Hammond starts with the Fleming books and what he wrote about cars and then the troubles the films had getting cars including a complaint on the rental fee they had for the sunbeam Connery drives for a few minutes on screen.

He covers the cars in the films, has footage of the films, discusses the stunts and even has interviews with early director Hamilton and actors Daniel Craig and Roger Moore about their driving experiences. He doesn’t focus just on the glamorous cars like the DBV but the lesser ones, the AMC he flips in Man with the Golden Gun, I was surprised to know that wasn’t a camera trick but they really jump the car, the Alfa he demolishes in Octopussy and the Citron 2CV from A View to a Kill. The car Roger Moore said was his favorite and which Hammond then describes as “You can own a real Bond car, it will just cost you about 6,000 and all of your dignity.”

In the end if you want a documentary look at the cars of the James Bond series, done with respect and a little humor by a real automotive expert, this is for you

I bought this for my husband and he's watched it at least twice. I've watched it once with him. I found the history of Bond cars interesting (as we've watched all the Bond films over the years) and Richard Hammond (one of the Top Gear presenters) does a good job with the interviews and descriptions of the cars. All the Bond movies are mentioned, even the latest one, Skyfall. Jeremy Clarkson and James May from the Top Gear series aren't in this DVD, but I didn't expect them to be. Happy with our purchase.

I've been a Bond fan since Bond showed up at the cinema. I enjoy Top Gear when I have the opportunity to watch it. Having Richard Hammond give a history of Bond cars is a brilliant idea. He covered a lot of material, gave some behind the scenes details that are hard to come by and even included a Top Gear style project in the mix. There were some Bond cars not included in the story that I wish had been there. But the contents of this DVD will be viewed again and again.

5 stars is not enough, this is awesome!!!! These folks do a great job anyway but with this one they whet over the top.
Great photography, great stories, even a few Bonds show up. Highly recommended.

I don't like cars, I don't understand cars, I don't care about cars. But I could watch this show every day and be happy. Great episode in particular if you love/like/are even moderately interested in Bond. Personally, I think Bond is scum. But the episode was cool. Bought this for my Bond-loving dad, he really got a kick out of it.

Richard Hammond is great in this and leads us down an often thought about, but never explored path behind the lineage and trivia of Bond's great cars. I never knew how much I didn't know, or how close we all came to seeing Bind pull up in a, gasp, Bentley!

And of course, they use the typical Top Gear treatment to turn this into a fun ride - and they make the submarine car from The Spy Who Loved Me - the Lotus Esprit!
