Tom Karen oversaw the design and production of Luke Skywalker's landspeeder from Star Wars (1977): one of the models was built upon the chassis of a Bond Bug – the wheels hidden by mirrors angled slightly to the ground.
The Wheeler Dealers television programme purchased and restored a Bond Bug 700ES and, after completion, sold it on to make a profit. Since then, the Bug has been on display at the 2011 NEC Classic Car Show in Birmingham, where Wheeler Dealers presenters Mike Brewer, Edd China and mechanic/technical assistant Paul Brackley were reunited and signed the Bug.
A Bond Bug was featured in some of the earlier episodes of Hollyoaks as a vehicle belonging to Jambo Bolton.
The car has also appeared in the video for the Robbie Williams song "Millennium", and in the 118 118 advertisements.9
