Mexican drug cartel's Bond mobile

The last Jeep we reviewed did not have a smoke machine as standard equipment CNET Networks

It looks like the bad guys are taking a leaf out of the Q Branch car-modification manual. According to the BBC, Mexican police have discovered a gadget-laden Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with an onboard smoke machine and a device to scatter spikes in the road behind it in order to evade capture. The vehicle, which is believed to belong to members of a drug cartel, was abandoned in the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas after a shoot-out. The SUV may not be on a par with the torpedo-launching, oil-spraying, mine-ejecting Lotus Esprit that Commander Bond used to his advantage in "The Spy Who Loved Me", but--aside from the Rinspeed sQuba --it's the nearest thing we've seen to a real-world Bond car.
