As No Time To Die finally hits screens this week, new research has revealed that it costs a whopping £32.3 million to be James Bond.
Research conducted by online gaming experts CasinoScores analysed data from JamesBondLifestyle and IMDb to establish how much it costs to be 007 by totalling the cost of James Bond’s wardrobe and accessories, gadget collection and the vehicles he uses.
The total cost of the James Bond wardrobe, as portrayed by Daniel Craig, totalled £154,334.89 from Daniel Craig’s first film as 007, Casino Royale, to his latest and last, No Time to Die. The priciest item in the collection being Tom Ford custom ‘mother-of-pearl’ cufflinks with an engraved “JB”, as seen in Spectre which cost £74,500. The second most expensive item in the Bond closet is the Giorgio Armani leather jacket worn in Casino Royale costing £4,800.
The James Bond gadget collection costs a total of £82,376.60. The highest priced item – costing £15,500 – that Bond uses to defend himself is the Anderson Wheeler 500 Nitro Express Double Rifle seen used in Skyfall.
The most expensive aspect of being James Bond is the vehicles that he uses and often blows up. The total cost of all vehicles Daniel Craig’s 007 uses comes to £32.1 million. The AgustaWestland AW101 Helicopter used in Skyfall has the biggest price tag of £21,000,000. The second most expensive vehicle used by James Bond is the Pruva Regina yacht costing £8,400,000, meaning Skyfall is the priciest of Daniel Craig’s Bond films. The signature Aston Martin DB10 is the third most expensive vehicle that Bond uses which features in Spectre, costing £1,400,000.
A spokesperson from CasinoScores commented on the study: “Part of the appeal of James Bond is the lavish lifestyle he lives however these expenses are enough to scare the living daylights out of anyone! As we enjoy having Bond back in the cinema, it will provide the perfect escapism we all need.”
