    Hi all, on MSN cars tonight there photo's of a collection of James Bond's "vehicles" from all(most) of the films. A couple of nice ones of the Z8 but unfortunately nothing Z3 wise from Golden Eye. I guess it wasn't a big enough star in those days. How things change, what if they'd given him Z3M, shame it wasn't available then. DCEFAD990ED7FB336C35479882839_h498_w598_m2.jpg 6C48192D958BDFFDE97B266A388737_h498_w598_m2.jpg

    Yeah, I noticed the similarity when I was looking for a Z8 picture some time ago. Honestly thought it was you leaning on the bonnet as well ;)

    Sadly not! Not quite as aerodynamic as Mr Bond!

    Built for comfort and not speed!!!

    Before I bought the car I started reading all about Z8's and the Bond car figured in this. It was never a real Z8, just a mock up. So I did a hpi check on the number. Nothing came up, so I asked the DVLA if it had been issued, and it hadn't. It was sent to auction and I bought it.

    I was more surprised than anyone that no one had checked it before me. But it's a nice thing to have with the car. I suspect it doesn't add huge value though.

    :)
