Forbes' Dan Lienert busts out with the prognostications like it ain't no thing, putting his mental weight to bear on what the next James Bond car could possibly be. His choices for 007's next whip? The Aston-Martin V8 Vantage, the Bugatti Veyron, the Bentley Azure, the new Jag XK and the amphibious Splash concept vehicle (pictured) from those head-cases over at Rinspeed.

We're thinking an Azure that could sprout legs and amble around like an AT-AT might be the way to go, leaving a shower of bomblets in its wake. Or better yet, was just the size of a freaking AT-AT. No...sadly, that's just too Moonraker for today's Bond.
