Pourrait être aussi une I (Sports Car)...James Bond nous enquiquine à rouler vitre baissée, on ne voit pas le montant qui sert à guider la vitre latérale le long du pare-brise...
Autre différence, il y a une histoire de bouchons d'essence différents entre la I et la II, mais je ne sais pas de quoi il retourne...la position de celui-ci est plus en haut des ailes arrières dans les versions ulterieures (IV et V)

Sur les sites suivants ils disent que c'est une II :

Mais le premier dit que c'est une 1961 et l'autre dit 1962

Si c'est une II, ce peut être une 60,61ou 62 sachant qu' elle fut produite jusqu'en 63...

This is the first car that Bond drives himself in the series, used in the first ever James Bond car chase. Car chases in Bond films have come a long way from this one, which involves dodgy rear projection and equally dodgy steering acting from Sean Connery.

It's a pioneer car in the James Bond films.

Technically the '57 Chevrolet Bel Air was the first car James Bond drove in the series...right after the driver ate the cyanide cigarette, Bond drove the car to his destination with the dead guy in the back seat.

That's right, Who'd have ever thought that the very first car that James Bond drove was an American ride?

My friends Ed & Shirley from Seattle had a white '62 Sunbeam Alpine with a black top and black vinyl bucket seats that they bought new, At the time Ed was in the Air Force and he was stationed at various bases around the country, So they practically circumnavigated the US in that car, It always ran great Ed told me, It never let them down, They kept that car until '83, When they sold it, It was pretty well used but it still started and ran great, Ed did a lot of the maintenance on it also.

Maxwell Smart drove one of these as well. Does anyone know if this one or that one had the 273/318 V-8 yet; or was that only later?

Sunbeam turned down the producers request to provide a car, so the Alpine was rented locally for 12 shillings a day.

The Sunbeam Alpine never had a v-8 only 4 cylinder engines. The Sunbeam Tiger was the model which ran a Ford 260 and 289 v-8. It never used a Chrysler engine even though they basically owned the company at the end Chrysler couldn't make the 273/318 fit.
I had the misfortune of once trying to race a Tiger up a local grade in my modified VW Bug. It left me in the dust and feeling like I was in reverse. My mechanic boss later informed me, through tears of laughter,that he knew the owner and the car, that I had been up against a Sunbeam Tiger with a 289, and I hadn't had a ghost of a chance....LOL

The Sunbeam Alpine in Dr. No was rented from my mother Jennifer Jackson in Kingston, Jamaica.

Nice. Any details about the car? How long did she own it?
