Notes

First seen in the opening sequence in which Bond rescues his wife to be, Tracy.

The two cars used during filming are now in private collections. One of them was very appropriate bought by an Australian from Sidney after filming, but the current whereabout is unknown to us. We have learned that the car in Australia has been under restoration and is nearly ready to run again for the first time in 20 years!

In the period 1967 - 1972 899 cars was produced.
