Notes

A classical James Bond company car fully equiped by Q Branch used in an action loaded car chase in a multi-storey carpark in Hamburg. So many gadgets hasn't been seen since the Aston Martin DB5 in 'Goldfinger'.

22 of these £50.000 vehicles were provided by BMW for filming.
Note the numberplate looks like a tribute to the Aston Martin DB5.

Some of the BMW 750iL secrets are revealed in the Photos section.
