Cars with Bond connections

I'm in the market for a classic Mini and found one being auctioned in a few weeks that was owned by Britt Ekland. I know its not rational but, for me, that makes the car much more interesting.

Anyone know of cars out there with similar connections to Bond?

    I haven't come across a Bond car, but there was a really nice mint low mileage Mercedes E420 on ebay a few months back which was Shirley Temple's personal car. They were asking too much for it on the buy it now price without a 'make an offer' option, but I seriously considered it. Not because of the connection to her though, but because it was a lovely car.

    Sounds nice, it will be interesting to see if the Britt Eckland connection on the Mini has any impact re the value at the auction. I will go along just in case I can grab a bargain.

    It may, but I think ultimately it will depend on the condition of the car.

    Elon Musk bought the Lotus from TSWLM for almost $1m a few years back. I can't believe the car was physically 'lost' (as they say in the article) until 1989.

    That looks to be in very good condition. Takes me back. I learned to drive in one of these (non-Cooper version) back in South Harrow years back. Love them to bits. So maneuverable. Having seen it I think it could fetch a pretty penny. Go for it!

    Yes, I noticed that. I suppose that's from the 60's. I haven't seen Get Carter yet and must get to it sometime.
