SPY VIBE CARS
Spy Vibers, start your engines! Well-dressed adventure and the Spy Vibe flare was seen throughout the arts and entertainment in the 1960s, but two major designs from the motor-car world rest toward the top with engines purring. Yes, I'm talking about the Jaguar E-Type (XKE) and the DB5 by Aston Martin. Both cars loomed large in television and cinema during the spy boom. Goldfinger, Thunderball, Danger Diabolik, The 10th Victim, Casino Royale, and Jerry Cotton immediately come to mind. Like Sean Connery or Twiggy, the cars themselves remain iconic characters. Here is quick look at the influence of the E-Type on future auto shows, and Top Gear's look at both of these Spy Vibe-fave rides. Happy Friday!
