Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th anniversary with the CC100 – but it’s not the first to do this…
1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III
1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III - Goldfinger (1964)
Auric Goldfinger's Rolls was chassis no 3BU168 with a Barker Sedanca de Ville body that held a surprising secret, because Goldfinger was smuggling gold from England to Austria by melting it down and recasting it into the shape of the panels of his car. The AU1 numberplate refers to the periodic table symbol for gold. In the novel the Rolls-Royce used was a Silver Ghost.

I went to see the exhibition the first day it opened.
I was not disappointed, the cars there are the originals from the films, and you can get right up to them to check them out.
There were plenty of people there, like me, having a great time.
The fact that Beaulieu also has a Top Gear exhibition was a bonus, this is a real must for Bond fans, and plenty of other cars there too, this year is the 60th anniversary of th opening of the National Motor museum.
Of all the James Bond cars,my two favourites are the Aston Martin DB5 used in Goldfinger (1964)
My other favourite is the BMW750iL as used in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
MSN homepage has lost its testes.
You can comment on ANYTHING as long as it is of no importance.
You can comment on NOTHING if it is.
Shame on you MSN.
Who got to you ?.
Yet it's most remembered for a continuity mistake; when the car comes out the other end of the alley tilted on the opposite side to when it went in.
Are you sure, as I seem to remember a shot from inside the car whilst in the alley
when he levels the car then tips it onto the other wheels, though how this would be
possible in a 'narrow' alley I'm not sure?
Back to the article though- The DB5 is beautiful and DBS is stunning too
Disappointed that their were more gimmick vehicles than cars on this saw the car collection at Goodwood revival and it was the real deal with twice as many cars, only one missing was the Sunbeam Alpine mk 4, which was borrowed from the high Commissioner of Jamaica's wife for a small fee and a meeting of the stars for dinner, for 3 days to film car chase, reason being the film budget of first film was so small because of doubts of the idea taking of ! which is probable in a land fill or in use as a chicken house now
