James Bond`s gadget-filled Aston Martin DB5 voted favorite famous high-tech car

Bond News - 07-01-05
Results of the survey, conducted by StrategyOne on behalf of Microsoft Corp.'s Automotive Business Unit and announced today at 2005 International CES, revealed that consumers ranked James Bond's gadget-filled Aston Martin DB5 as their favorite famous high-tech car, followed by KITT from the 1980s TV series "Knight Rider" and the Batmobile.

In addition, if consumers could give their high-tech car a voice, their top choice would be former 007 Sean Connery's famous Scottish brogue. Their second choice would be that of actor James Earl Jones' Darth Vader.

Thanks to `Goldeneye` for the alert.
