Many of us share an interest in James Bond and his cars.

I came across this: http://commanderbond.net/article/2284 which is excellent reading and the credits are impressive:

I think all I did was show the author a link to a brochure or something on ebay.

Yup, the _actual_ car. They built three for filming, his was the one used for that scene - still has a "ground anchor" in the boot, in case it all went pear-shaped heading down the hill...

Yup.

Although the cars they used for filming had the 1015cc flat four from the GS instead of the normal 602cc twin.
