    Go and buy the latest James Bond movie (Die another Day) on DVD. Check out the EXTRAS disc that's in the box. It has behind the scenes footage of the famous chase scene with the Jag and the Vanquish on ice. Plenty of footage of the car. Very cool....literally.

    Unfortunately I don't have any Vanquish vids yet as I've been looking for some as well, but I did pass a charcoal one on Sunday on my way to the Caps game. Such a beautiful, muscular, menacing looking car. Too bad (IMHO) they're not available with a manual transmission. :(

    Check out www.racingflix.com and go to their road test section. There is a video from Top Gear comparing the 575 to the Vanquish. About 70MB in size and 12 minutes long. Good video too with great sounds. Hope this helps.

    Now wait a minute...After further review, I haven't found any reference to a V8 Vanquish being used in Die Another Day. It is always listed as a V12 in the film. Please fill me in...

    Djs ,

    The production crew changed the V12 for Ford V8's for the stunts . I dont remember why exaclty though ..But when the movie came out , a few car mags tested the Bond Vanquish and you could see the Ford V8 under the hood.

    I think it was done to fit the front rockets and other gizmos up front.

    The V8 was also used in order to accomodate the 4 wheel drive system from the Explorer, which was added for better control on the ice in the chase scene.
