Notes

In the carefull hands of Q-branch, the car has been modified to meet Universal Exports specifications. The result is another gadgetloaded Aston Martin, that meets our great expectations. Luckily, the invisibility is used sparingly, allowing us to enjoy this magnificent machine. James Bond uses all the cars gadgets in a battle with Zao on a frozen lake in Iceland and in the Icepalace.

We welcome Bond back in an Aston Martin.
