Diamonds Are Forever (1971) is the seventh spy film of the British James Bond series and the sixth to star Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film is based on Ian Fleming's 1956 novel of the same name, and is the second of four James Bond films directed by Guy Hamilton. The story has Bond impersonating a diamond smuggler to infiltrate a smuggling ring, and soon uncovering a plot by his former nemesis Blofeld to use the diamonds and build a giant laser satellite that would be used to hold the world to ransom.

Diamonds Are Forever was a commercial success, but its humorous tone was met with mixed reviews by critics.

The Ford Mustang Mach 1 was a performance model of the Ford Mustang that Ford produced beginning in 1969. The original production run of the Mach 1 ended in 1979 because the Mustang II coupe was being phased out in favor of newer Mustangs on the Fox body platform.

The Mach 1 returned in 2003 as a high performance version of the Mustang. The Mach 1 was discontinued again after the 2004 model year as the SN-95 platform was replaced by the newer S197 platform for the 2005 model year.

The name "mach 1" as used by Ford was originally introduced in 1959 on a concept "Levacar" originally shown in the Ford Rotunda. This concept "vehicle" utilized a cushion of air as propulsion on a circular dais. This concept vehicle was orange and white.

The 1971 Mach 1 Mustang was featured in the James Bond Film, Diamonds Are Forever (1971). In this film, the Mach 1 was the first vehicle ever filmed to feature the now-famous 'two-wheeled tilt' stunt (driven by stunt driver 'Bumps' Willard) as Bond escapes from pursuing Las Vegas police. One of the stunt cars used in the Bond film was later featured as Jan Michael Vincent's car in the Charles Bronson film 'The Mechanic'.Unfortunately for the Mach 1 (as well as Vincent's character), in its only appearance in the movie, the car was demolished by a bomb planted inside as retaliation by Bronson's character.

Tomorrow Never Dies, released in 1997, is the eighteenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the second to star Pierce Brosnan as MI6 agent James Bond. Bruce Feirstein was credited as writing the screenplay, although it received input from several writers, and it was directed by Roger Spottiswoode. It follows Bond as he tries to stop a media mogul from engineering world events and starting World War III.

The film was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and was the first James Bond film made after the death of producer Albert R. Broccoli. Tomorrow Never Dies performed well in the box office despite mixed reviews. While its domestic box office surpassed Golden Eye, it was the only Pierce Brosnan Bond film not to open at number one at the box office since it opened the same day as Titanic.

BMW 7 Series car from Tomorrow Never Dies

This BMW 750i found fame in the Tomorrow Never Dies film during that amazing underground car park scene. This is a rather nice model of the stylish BM, with some good detail touches in its own right, including well replicated lights and interior. But best of all is the two stage sunroof missile launcher. Press it once and the roof flips open, press it again and the missiles shoot a fair way. See more


For Your Eyes Only (1981) is the 12th spy film in the James Bond series, and the fifth to star Roger Moore as MI6 agent James Bond. It is based on two short stories from Ian Fleming's collection For Your Eyes Only: the title story "For Your Eyes Only" and "Risico". It also includes elements from the novel Live and Let Die. In the film, Bond and Melina Havelock become tangled in a web of deception spun by Greek businessman Aristotle Kristatos. Bond is after a missile command system known as the ATAC, whilst Melina is out to avenge the death of her parents.

The film was released on both June 24th (in the United Kingdom) and June 26th (in the United States) of 1981 two weeks after the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark and was both a critical and monetary success, generating $195.3 million worldwide.

The classic British sports car with its 2.2 litre turbo-charged engine proved more than a match for Bond's enemies. This 1/36 scale replica features precisely matched metaillic orange paintwork, spoked wheels, full body and interior decoration - and 007's skis strapped to the roof. See more.
