Driven by Tracy Di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg). Later in the film she helps Bond get away from Irma Bunt and her henchman. This gets the most screen time out of the all the vehicles in the film.


1969.

I don't agree. It's well a 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible, with a Ram Air induction hood scoop added as option. Possible engines: V8 351 c.i. 290 hp, V8 428 c.i. 335 hp, V8 427 c.i. 390 hp, and a 302 c.i. with the "Eliminator" package (definetely not present on the red Cougar driven by Diana Rigg in this Bond film).

two vs one for the Mercury Cougar, so we keep Mercury :D (I am neutral, for me you can say it is a Buick, a Ford or an Oldsmobile, I could believe you :lol:)

I know the lady that ones this vehicle, and I have a red cougar xr7 conv with red leather seats to, this car is located in the middle south of Sweden. And it is running and in really good condition, oct 2005.
The engine is a 428cc and it is one out of three in the movie, but one of them is in england on a yankyard.

I've always thought this car looked very good - the red colour + Ford rally wheels, etc. It all 'worked' for me at least.. Very nice. :)

It was an R code 428 Cobra Jet (335 HP conservatively rated, more like 360-370 HP) with Ram-Air. 428 CJ Q codes (non RA) in 1969 didn't get the hood scoop (except Eliminators...they all had that hood scoop)
1 of 96: 69 XR-7 convertible/R code/C6 automatic.

A friend of my fathers owns one of the 3 remaining Cougars used in this film. In the UK we have a log book which is the original bill of sale for a car. He has this with the car and it states on there that the car was used in the film. My father has lost touch with him so I dont know how he is going with the restoration. He also owns a 69 mustang fastback.

O K one was blown up during filming , one is in England and the other rare classic cat is in Southern California and 4 sale ! for the right amount !!!!!

The bond Cougar(428 cj)that was in sweden is owned by ian flemings organisation now, the bought the car last year from the girl in sweden, i talked to the organisation because i have some parts from that car.
I have documents know that tells me i have the parts from that vehicle, and i am glad i could keep it in my cougar (red conv with red leather interior).
I really would like to go and see the car in the museum they have. they have restored it and all the bond stuff is back on the car.

How many Cougar XR7 Convertibles with 428 CJ's were built in 1969? Did Tracies car have an automatic or 4 speed?
