1966-1971 DS 21 Pallas.
It's a Pallas because of the side strips, the leather upholstery and the loops on the B-pillar. In UK the Pallas wasn't available before September 1965 and only with the 21 engine. Pre-1972 because of the old type door handles.
Only if it dates from earlier than February 1966 it will have been built in Slough (but only 126 of these were built and most of them have disappered). The Slough built Pallas's had a double chevron emblem on the C-pillar.
Nice Webasto sunroof :)
Listing as (French built) 1966 DS 21 Pallas until other pictures might help to be more precise.

You have a remarkable knowledge of Slough built Citroens!
I didn't know that only 126 Pallas's were built. Equally I had no knowledge of the double chevrons on the C pillar. I think the Paris built have 'DS' instead. Strange that different panels were used at that late stage of Slough production.
It's hard to tell from that picture if that is a Slough model. The colour looks a bit non - Slough to me.

Thanks, Nostalgiaguy. Just a question of owning some books and knowing where to find things ;)
French Pallas's had DS (D on top of S) indeed, until model year 1972; the last years they had 'Pallas' written on the C-pillar.

It's actually a 1970 DS21 Semi-Auto in SABLE METALLISE AC 318, see: http://pallasauto.co.uk/en/ds21-pallas-rhd/gallery
We were involved in the restoration and supplied the car for the filming.

From 69cit's link car was a scrapyard restoration, and plate now is KRX 831H. DVLA details are:

Cylinder Capacity (cc) 2175CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available

KRX series (Berkshire) does not seem to have been issued with H suffix in period so not the car's original plate, but a retro issue, also as suggested in DVLA data.

It's fitting that the local code for Slough was used for the new reg.

I was slightly amused to spot a Traction Avant with Stoke plates a few years ago. Michelin have a plant there & for many years had a stake in Citroen, so it could be an ex-fleet car.

Is it just me, or do you guys also agree that the Citroen DS was a very poor choice for the MI6 gang in this movie. What you think?...

IIRC when Wheeler Dealers had finished with /vehicle_441634-Dodge-Charger-1970.html , it had a KRX ***H registration, so it would be a retro issue.

Seen a lot during film so could have lots more captures possible.

Odd moment at 00-24-47 - man gets out of rear door and shuts it - no problem. Another man gets out of the front passenger door, and as he shuts it the sunroof jumps up.

In the original 1979 TV series, this was the Morgan.
