Notes

This MGB is owned by Hong Kong's MI6 agent Mary Goodnight. She & Bond follow Andrea Anders in her dark green Rolls-Royce; they end up at the Peninsula Hotel where Bond discovers that they have a fleet of dark green Rolls-Royces.

The original MGB series was produced from 1962 through 1980 (not including the resurrected MG RV8 of the 90's). Total production numbers were closer to 500,000 units for the run, with almost 350,000 sold in the North America alone.
