* ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' appropriately enough for the name, features ''FlyingCar Rocket Cars'', but the tropes also applies to many other vehicles in the setting, as it is the 1930s and sports cars are available. In fact, a conventional vehicle isn't even going to cost a player anything, even if it is a hot-rod.

* Ironically, ''Film/{{Drive}}'' had very little driving compared to many movies that feature a "driver" as the main character, but it did have a couple pretty cool cars in the main chase sequence. A black 5th Gen (second body style) Mustang and a modern Chrystler 300 giving chase.

A sequence: a black 5th Gen (second body style) Mustang and a modern Chrystler 300 giving chase.Chrysler 300. One must also remember the Impala SS used by the Driver at the very beginning of the film.
* Film/JohnWick loves his American muscle cars, starting with the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 he drives at the start of the film. He loves that car so much, in fact, that [[spoiler:his wife's dying note to him]] has to ''specifically mention that "the car doesn't count"'' when explaining "something to love" as [[spoiler:her parting gift]]. The theft of the car is one of the plot devices in the film's IncitingIncident.
** As a complementary replacement, the chop-shop owner provides Wick a loaner Chevelle SS 396. The staff of the Continental also gift him a modern V8 Charger, which [[CarFu he uses in the final chase scene]].

** The Aston-Martin [=DB5=] from ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. Because of its instant and long-time iconic status, the car also appeared in ''{{Film/Thunderball}}'', ''{{Film/Goldeneye}}'', ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' and ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''.
*** Actually, if you look for it, it's in every Creator/PierceBrosnan film.

''Film/{{Spectre}}''.



** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''Film/GoldenEye'' where James gets a car as cool as any of the others, but never uses it in battle.
** ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' gave Bond a rocket-firing, fully loaded BMW [=750iL=] that he could drive by remote control. Yes, that's as awesome as it sounds.
** ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' puts Bond back in a two-seater, this time packing guided missile launchers...and we don't see much else, because it got sawn in half before he could use it.

*** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamborghini_Aventador#Veneno Veneno]], was a BaseBreaker for the Lambo fandom, but face it: only 3 of them were made, all costing well above 3 million dollars (you heard it, '''THREE MILLION DOLLARS!!!'''), and it is currently the fastest production Lamborghini, outclassing the Aventador by just 5 kph and losing to the Murciélago RGT (essentially a race-tuned Murciélago, yeah, it's ''that'' cool) by 2 kph.
