In the James Bond film "Dr No. Bond is seen driving the first car to feature in a Bond film, the Sunbeam Alpine Series II, in lake blue. After being invited to the mountain apartment of enemy spy Miss Taro, Bond drove the Sunbeam up the dusty road and into a trap. He was soon chased by a large hearse that tried to ram him off the edge of the sharp cliff. After some tense corners, a crane blocked the road ahead. Bond managed to pass underneath, but the hearse was too tall and skidded off the mountain to a fiery death.
Like many Bond cars to follow, the Sunbeam was English made, manufactured just outside of Coventry in the West Midlands. The iconic car had also featured in the novel Dr. No, where it was the personal car of John Strangways, head of Station J, Jamaica. For the film, it was rumoured that the producers had borrowed the Sunbeam from a local resident to avoid the cost of importing their own.
