A new interactive guide has analyzed each official Bond film to reveal how much vehicle damage 007 has really caused. The ‘Carnage Calculator’ dissects the damage inflicted on every vehicle Bond has driven and uses insurance categories to calculate the total cost, and accordingly it has estimated that Roger Moore is the most destructive Bond, completely destroying five of his cars across five films. Meanwhile, Daniel Craig has caused the most expensive vehicle damage, with a whopping £3,133,590 bill (US $4,043,421 at today’s exchange rate) across four films.
Have you ever wondered how many vehicles 007 has ruined across all 24 official Bond films, and the true cost of carnage? The results will apparently leave you both shaken and stirred.
The Carnage Calculator, created by car leasing specialist AMT, collates data from every film in the franchise, revealing how much damage the superspy has really caused. Users can view a visualisation of each Bond vehicle as well as a description of the scene and car damage. The carnage calculator totals up the financial impact of Bond’s devastating driving.
Bond damages a shocking eight Aston Martins in all 18 films, with Daniel Craig writing off three models alone. A total of 11 different vehicles are completely written off by Bond, including the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II and the infamous AEC Regent bus. Daniel Craig’s Aston Martin DB10 is the most expensive vehicle destroyed in the film franchise. Only ten models were created exclusively for use in Spectre, each carrying a hefty price tag of £2,400,000 (US $3,096,835).
