00:18 and with no time to die the next 00:20 installment in the bond franchise coming 00:22 to theaters soon we wanted to take a 00:24 look at some of the craziest bond car 00:26 gadgets over the years bond car gadget 00:29 number five the 1980 lotus esprit that 00:33 transformed into a submarine in for your 00:36 eyes only 00:37 unlike most bond gadgets that seem to be 00:39 created with very niche uses in mind 00:41 this one actually seems like quite 00:44 practical to this day there are 00:46 manufacturers that make amphibious cart 00:49 but the fact that it's a supercar and a 00:51 british one at that 00:52 makes it so very bond 00:55 being able to drive off a pier during a 00:57 car chase press a button and then just 01:00 sit back and watch your car transform 01:01 into a submarine would be so useful in 01:04 real life namely in getting away from 01:06 your in-laws no clancy and martha i do 01:09 not want to see the side show from your 01:10 jersey shore trip 01:12 some quick trivia elon musk a real-life 01:15 bond villain 01:16 bought the submarine prop car for one 01:18 million dollars and said that he plans 01:19 to make a real submarine car out of it 01:22 no word on that yet keeping our fingers 01:24 crossed number four timothy dalton's the 01:27 living daylight one of the most 01:29 underrated bomb films starring one of 01:30 the most underrated bonds in our opinion 01:33 featured a v8 aston martin vantage and 01:35 it laser wheels you heard that right 01:38 laser wheels let me explain this complex 01:41 scenario so that you can understand it 01:42 its wheels 01:44 shot lasers out of them 01:46 you can see it in action here lasering 01:48 the soviet cop car during a chase 01:50 sequence 01:51 how does this thing even work where are 01:53 the laser beams coming from within the 01:55 axle where's the power coming from last 01:57 i checked the normal 12 volt battery 01:59 that comes in a car is barely able to 02:01 charge my iphone much less a high 02:03 powered plasma beam 02:05 clearly this is meant to be more of a 02:07 modern take on the famous wheel 02:08 shredders from the og bond car the db5 02:11 and we love it 02:13 more lasers and everything please coffee 02:15 mug put a laser in it masonry put a 02:18 laser in it dentures you guessed it 02:20 lasers now it's time for our famous 02:23 segment notable mentions look at the 02:25 skis that come out of this particular 02:27 bond car skis where are you gonna need 02:29 skis number three in tomorrow never dies 02:33 bond is up against the scheming media 02:35 mogul who plans to engineer a war 02:37 between the world's superpowers so he 02:39 can make a fortune covering it a 02:41 dastardly plot to be sure and bond's 02:43 arsenal for this mission included the 02:45 stunning bmw 750il 02:49 in the film bond goes on a hair-raising 02:51 car chase in a parking garage where bad 02:53 guys throw up all manner of traps to 02:56 stop them and one of them is a big metal 02:59 rope stretch taut to basically bisect 03:03 the car as it drove through it 03:05 and what does bond do to combat this 03:07 specific obstacle a very specific 03:10 cutting device that pops out from under 03:12 the bmw logo on the hood 03:15 we're going to have to put q branch on 03:17 blast with this one q your whole plan 03:20 for this thing was that it only works on 03:22 horizontal things specifically metal 03:24 ropes that are precisely three to four 03:27 feet above the ground 03:29 what if it was two or four and a half 03:31 feet above the ground bond would have 03:33 had enough like a deli cold cuts number 03:36 two the invisibility cloak in die 03:38 another day the last pierce brazen bond 03:40 movie an actor better known for his 03:42 criminally overlooked rendition of 03:44 winner takes it all in mamma mia the 03:46 amazing aston martin v12 vanquish is 03:48 outfitted with an invisibility cloak now 03:52 as much as i hate this we do have to 03:54 take cue to task for this as well an 03:56 invisibility cloak is the very first 03:58 thing we would have thought of that's 04:00 like the number one thing aside from 04:02 flying that everybody wants as a 04:04 superpower also as much as we love the 04:06 idea of putting it on the vanquish may 04:08 not have been the best car to do it 04:10 since its v12 growls like a lion number 04:14 one has to go to the very first and 04:16 frankly ultimate bond car gadget the 04:19 ejector seat 04:20 the gadget featured in goldfinger is so 04:23 bonkers that of course submarines lasers 04:25 and invisibility had to come next the 04:28 concept here is that your passenger in 04:30 the beautiful db5 is a bad guy or girl 04:33 and you want to get rid of them with 04:35 extreme prejudice do you stop the car 04:37 and wrestle them out of it no 04:39 that is so gauche 04:41 clearly the gentlemanly way to get rid 04:43 of an unwanted guest is to rocket them 04:45 30 to 40 feet in the air with no means 04:48 of coming down safely i'm leo schrevsky 04:51 for the tundra enthusiast network thanks 04:53 for watching 04:59 you
