James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) Respect Thread

I'm starting to make respect threads for James Bond, and I may end up making one for every actor. For now, though, I'm starting with the first Bond I ever saw, and the one I grew up with - Pierce Brosnan. Note that the thread is not complete yet.

BMW 750iL

Bond's BMW 750iL is famous for being the first car in his possession with a remote control. He is able to use his Ericsson cellphone to remotely control the car's movement and gadgets with great precision and skill, enabling him to drive without even touching the steering wheel. In the first video, Q also states the car has machine guns and a GPS tracking system, though they are not seen in use.

The BMW 750iL is shown to have a high-level security system, painfully shocking the hands of anybody who touches the car except those who have had their fingerprints scanned (such as Bond himself):

No Caption Provided

The 750iL's windows and chassis are both bulletproof and capable of withstanding sledgehammer impacts:

The 750iL is able to release tear gas to stun any unwanted personnel in the vicinity of the car:

The 750iL's sunroof conceals twelve rockets capable of knocking back and destroying cars:

The 750iL's rear bumper conceals dozens of caltrops capable of instantly blowing out tyres:

The 750iL is also capable of re-inflating its tyres, even after they have been blown out by caltrops:

The BMW 750iL's bonnet emblem conceals a retractable chainsaw which is capable of cutting through wires and ropes:

BMW Z8

The BMW Z8 was the second BMW under Bond's possession, and the second car to have a remote control function. Q's assistant also notes that the car has Titanium armor and features a multi-tasking heads-up display. However, these are not seen in use.

Bond's keychain can remotely start up the BMW Z8 and drive it forwards:

Integrated into the Z8's steering wheel is a targeting display system that works in tandem with surface-to-air missiles that are fired from launchers concealed within the car's side vents. The missiles are capable of destroying a helicopter:

Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish was introduced as the successor to the Aston Martin Virage range. As a James Bond car, is it notorious for its cloaking device, though it also has a slew of other gadgets. Note that the Vanquish's gadget panel includes switches indicating that the Vanquish has lasers, mortars and grenades, but none of them are used.

The Aston Martin Vanquish's chassis and windows are all reinforced to withstand firearm impacts with no damage. They can also withstand smashing through glass, and can similarly withstand missile impacts with minimal or no damage:

The Vanquish is able to open its roof, and has an ejector seat, which can be used to eliminate unwanted passengers. In a creative display, Bond opens the roof while the Vanquish is flipped onto its roof, then fires the ejector seat, flipping the car upright again:

The Vanquish's hood air vents conceal a pair of target-seeking shotguns:

The Vanquish's wheels are equipped with retractable spikes for additional traction in slippery conditions:

The Vanquish's most notorious mechanism, the adaptive camouflage system works by having tiny cameras on all sides of the Vanquish project what they see on a light-emitting polymer skin opposing them, which makes the car invisible to the human eye:

No Caption Provided

The Vanquish possesses a retractable LCD display, with radial thermal imaging:

The Vanquish can be remotely started and controlled by Bond's keyring, even when invisible:
