Unlike the 750iL featured in Tomorrow Never Dies, or the Z8 in The World Is Not Enough, the BMW Z3 that Bond drives in GoldenEye somehow doesn’t seem quite as fitting as other cars. There’s nothing wrong with the Z3, but it doesn’t present quite the same image as, say, a DB5. The car’s appearance is, however, credited with helping boost Z3 sales globally; the car launched only a few months before GoldenEye premiered. According to a 2001 Bloomberg story, BMW paid $25 million to get the Z3 in Bond’s hands. But we’d prefer to see the British super-spy at the helm of a British car.
