Moke’s 007 San Monique Edition lets you live out your James Bond dreams

Live and let drive

James Bond has driven all sorts of tasty motors over the course of his martini-drinking, SMERSH-beating, lady-disrespecting career. Most people would probably pick the timeless Aston Martin DB5 or amphibious Lotus Esprit S1 as their favourite, but if you’re a real fan there’s a lesser-known runabout that you’ve probably always had your eye on – and now you can own one. Driven around the fictional Caribbean island of San Monique by Roger Moore in Live and Let Die, the four-seater Moke (US$26,975) is like a cross between a Hummer and golf buggy. With an electric motor that’ll reach a top speed of 25mph it’s not going to beat No Time To Die‘s DBS Superleggera in a drag race, but the 40-mile range is fine for bezzing to Lidl and back to pick up some more olives. Each one is custom built with a wooden steering wheel and gear knob, striped Bimini top, white rims and special ‘San Monique’ spare-tyre cover, but there are also a couple of modern extras that 007 wouldn’t have had back in 1973: a Bluetooth-equipped radio and rear-view camera. Much more practical than an ejector seat or invisibility cloak.
