  • There is a patch on the road at Milford - Alpine section - where they put an hydraulic ram to make the DBS roll. They tried many times to roll the car but failed without the ram. Just a little further down the road there’s a short climb and sudden dip where the Aston Martin experience guys want you to make the AM your driving fly !! Happy days.

  • Barely 13 seconds given to the 750iL, but at least it got some attention - the big E38 from Tomorrow Never Dies is always considered a dud in the Bond car line up, but I think it's a sensationally cool, sleek vehicle, especially in the Aspen silver paint and sitting on the 18-inch M-Sport alloys. A dream of a car :)

  • The green XK8 from Die Another Day... if memory serves, the stunt/mule cars were based on a cut-down Bronco chassis, retained the 4x4 drive-train and had a Ford short block V8. Were quite loud in the workshop! Was fun driving around Brown's Lane plant playing with the minigun! 🤣

He said it was the only unit they found that made it possible for 4x4 running gear. I remember half the cowl and bulkhead was cut away, the base of the windshield was basically floating!

    • @Acoustonaut It was a Chevy lump, was it? I only got to see them in the SVO workshop; remember being told it was a Bronco running gear and short-block V8, so assumed they'd knicked the lump too! Bet Ford kept that bit quiet! 🤣

    • The car they used on the ice had a Chevy V8 and transmission as that was the only thing that could fit and give the 4WD, The rest were RWD as normal. That paint looked incredible going down the BL XK production line.

  • I loved to see the tuk tuk/autorickshaw as we call in India. Maube the quintessential Bond ccar ever. Never knew James Bond had one of that. Maybe in Octopussy. And also maybe his greatest and most secret Bond vehicle ever.
