Bond Bug is a three-wheeled British microcar with so much retro cool it can barely contain itself. The lines, the style, the everything--it surprisingly just works. But the most interesting thing about it? After releasing the Bond Bug in 1970, the designer was working on a little film you might have heard off in 1977. Star Wars. The same guy who made this, made the legendary landspeeder, using the Bond Bug as its base. This particular one is currently for sale--so Star Wars and/or car enthusiasts should head this way if they're interested. Hat tip to Silodrome for the find.
