Hello juregnsmuda,

Does your friend still own this car? Is it the Bond car? And is this definitely a Bentley 3.5 Ltr?
I work on a Bond cars magazine and am interested in finding the car.

Thanks.

Bonds only film Bentley. Wrong colour, he always had a battleship grey one in the books.

Right; and in the books James Bond drove a 4½ Litre Supercharged ("Blower Bentley").

In Ian Fleming's Bond novels Bond often drives a Bentley, and here we see the cinematic Bond's Bentley. Although this is the only Bond film where we see him with a Bentley (with the exception of the unofficial Bond films Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again).

In this scene Bond is by a river, enjoying the company of Sylvia Trench (Eunice Gayson), but then his beeper goes off and he runs to his Bentley to recieve a call from Moneypenny on his car phone. In 1963 having a phone in a car was quite something!

Various sources refer to this car as a "Bentley Mark IV", but this wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_vehicles#Bentley says that no Bentley was ever called this.

According to this wikipedia article (and I'm not sure if you can always trust wikipedia 100%) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bentley the Bentley 3 1/2 litre was made from 1933 to 1937. But it would be nice if an expert here could identify the year of this car.

It bit simalier what he drove in "Never Say Never Again." The Bentley he drove was 4 1/2 before he was issued his gadget Motorbike Yamaha. Never forgot the world his favorite 007 mobile Aston Martin DB5 which replaced the Bentley in the one of the loved & always unforgotton Bond movie Goldfinger. ;) :)

In the novels the Bentley was Bond personal possessions.

The dialogue from Goldfinger strongly implies that the Bentley was issued to Bond by Q-Branch

Bond: Where's my Bentley?
Q: It's had its day, I'm afraid.
Bond: But it's never let me down.
Q: M's orders, 007. You'll be using this Aston Martin DB5, with modifications.

I found some more pictures of this exhibition a while back.
There exhibited a black BMW 750iL and a red Z8.
So I doubt whether this is an original, personally I do not think so.
But the registration is still in line with the model of James Bond Car collection
