This car is one of three cars used in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies.

The 1997 BMW 750iL has rocket launchers on top, wire cutters, and a full set up so that it can be driven from the back.

Remember the bit where tacks drop out the back to slow down any pursuers?

Well, that’s still there as well.

It’s not often you get up close and personal with a real James Bond car – unless you’re Elon Musk – so any chance has to be enjoyed.

Three cars like this one were used for the movie, each with some of the gadgets that really work.

Obviously, the rocket launchers don’t properly blow stuff up – that would be a crime.

However, it has the bullet holes from the film, and a tiny camera stashed away in the wing mirror to enhance the cinematic magic.

If you’re a fan of 007, you’re going to want to check this out.
