Going head-to head in the cinemas, Borat and James Bond have generated a lot of press and publicity. Recently, one insurer calculated that James Bond's car insurance would come to about £7,000. Not to be outdome, another insurance company proclaims that Bond can shove it, and that they'd much rather insure Borat, despite the Bear he's transporting around.
So, apparently there is a certain danger that James Bond will be putt-putting around in a 4WD Fiat Panda. What is the world coming to? It hardly fits in with the rest of the James Bond vehicle park. A propos Bond-cars - in 1997, James Bond's original DB5 was stolen and was never recovered. Someone, somewhere, has this piece of motoring history stashed away.
