10 James Bond cars you can afford

Sure, an Aston Martin DB5 like the one James Bond drives in "Skyfall" will cost you an arm and a leg, but if you want to drive a car like the movie super-spy, you may not have to shell out big bucks after all.

1977 Lotus Esprit S1

  • Driven in: The Spy Who Loved me
  • Used price: $11,800

This Esprit became one of the most famous Bond cars because, in the movies, it could go underwater and, while there, shoot missiles. (If you don't recognize it, that's because the one in the film was white.) In real life, this model has a reputation for leaving its owners drowning under hefty repair bills, according to Hagerty Insurance. They advise snooping around into any Esprit's background and maintenance history before committing your cash.
