Notes

Goldfinger uses this car to smuggle gold internationally by replacing the panels with gold. James Bond uses the homer trackning gadget in his Aston Martin DB5 to shadow Goldfinger to his factory in Switzerland.

The actual car was originally custom-built for the Rt. Hon. Lord Fairhaven of Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire. In 1986 it was auctioned and sold for $121,000.

In 'Octopussy' a Rolls Royce Phantom III is seen as Kamal Khan's car.
