1973 Glastron GT-150
A new actor began playing James Bond for the 1973 film “Live And Let Die” — the first of many Bond films for Roger Moore. And although the film does not feature a special gadget-laden car, there is an epic boat chase through the Louisiana bayou. Bond leads the chase in this Glastron GT-150 speedboat with multiple bad guys in pursuit, performing quick turns and even jumping over a police car (of course).
