Sir Godfrey posing as Bond's chauffeur Tibbett drove this car when Bond went to stay at Zorin's estate.
The next day, Tibbett leaves the estate, but is killed by May Day while in a car wash.
May Day drives the car back to the mansion and 007 jumps off his horse into the car.
She takes Bond to a river and pushes the classic car into a lake - Bond stays alive by breathing in air from the tyres.
The car used in the film was the producer 'Cubby' Broccoli's own car, but was not the car pushed in the water. The producers purchased another real car for this scene.
