Notes

In the film this beautiful car, fully equiped by Q-branch ends up sawn in two by gigantic sawblades suspended from beneath a helicopter.
James Bond and his car isn't giving in without a battle, using the cars weapon arsenal and James Bond's quick thinking and tactical skills.

BMW did everything possible to supply a real Z8 for filming but all they could provide in time was the body panels, which were attached onto a Dax Cobra V8 and made to look like the real car. For close-up shots, a full scale model was used.
