007 NUMBER 580

At this point, Bond movies are almost as synonymous as Fast and Furious movies... Almost. And, in 2002 when Eon and MGM announced they'd reached a product placement deal with the Ford Motor Company, car enthusiasts were ecstatic about the franchise's potential return to automotive form. At that time, Ford owned both Jaguar and Aston Martin, and it would eventually be announced that both hero and villain were back behind the wheels of British brands. That said, Ford, brimming with great marketing ideas, decided to highlight their newly launched Thunderbird as well. Enter the James Bond 007 Edition roadster: a limited run of just 700 convertibles that were modeled after the unmodified movie car piloted by actress Halle Berry. Heavily optioned and sequentially numbered, these T-Birds featured more power, a Select Shift transmission, unique wheels, upscale trimmings and unique Coral paint that was inspired by the Sunset Coral single-stage found on 1956 Thunderbirds. The result is one striking cruiser that turns heads everywhere it parades!
