What kind of special features did Q build into the Vantage for 007’s use, you ask? Loads. Starting with a relatively yawn-inducing police band scanner radio, this Vantage also featured retractable outriggers for snow/ice driving, ice spikes that would shoot out of the tires via compressed air, a jet engine booster rocket, heat-seeking missiles cleverly concealed behind the fog lamps, front hub laser beams, and a special heads-up display for accurately targeting said missiles. There was also a self-destruct system, should all safe escape plans fall apart, which, of course, they did. Note: a fiberglass replica was destroyed during filming, not either actual Vantage. You can breathe now.
