It's a 3.5 Litre P5B. MkIII only applies to the 3 Litre P5.

Eccentric movie. But what was the other car, that he dreamed of and then bought (or not?)? It was a blue metallic sports car. A Maserati maybe?

There are two Rovers because there are two Pelhams!

There is some horrendous continuity in this film, that starts in the opening titles where the black plated 'XGX' car is then substituted to the yellow and white plates of 'AVB' in a long shot.

and don't get me started on the motorway scene where Pelham's car is repeatedly overtaking the same blue Sunbeam Alpine!!

Is there any firm evidence that there were actually two different Rovers used in the film? Given the low budget production, it was more likely that the plates were merely substituted to give that impression. It was surprising that the Rover Car Company didn't appear to supply the production company with a press or demonstration model, given the central part that car plays in the story line. At this time, BL were a little more proactive with the supply of cars for tv and film work - see Villain as an example.

Interestingly, Basil Dearden, who directed the film was decapitated in a high speed accident in March 1971, allegedly on the exact same streth of the M4 - does anyone happen to know what car he was driving at the time of the accident, as there seems to be very scant information on the accident itself?

In my opinion, Bordeaux Red is a definitive colour for a P5B and great use of the then new '3M' reflective number plates was made to differentiate old and new Rovers.

XGX 282G was a genuine 68-69 London issue, but no trace now what it was.
