Bond and Solitaire (Jane Seymour) steal this bus and are chased by the San Monique police. Bond outwits them by doing a 180 degree spin (impressive feat for a double decker bus).

Then he goes under a low bridge, slicing off the top deck, which the police car crashes into.

Notice that when the top is sliced off by the bridge, there is no wreckage involving seats, of which there were like 32 up there. The movie staff had carefully cut the body with perforations in order to zip right off for the one and only take they could have to do this.

I don't think the 180 spin would be too hard given that there really isn't any weight up there. It's not like it would tip over. What I couldn't believe is how anyone could do it (without the wet pavement the movie scene has) when the bus has so much weight in the front it'd be terrific understeer.

Also I'd expect lots of showers of window glass on impact. Main looks as if top windows removed, but thumbs after collision look as if they have window glass.
