1981 Citroën 2CV '007'

In 1981 a bright yellow 2CV was driven by James Bond in the film For Your Eyes Only,
including an elaborate set piece car chase through a Spanish olive farm, 
in which Bond uses the unique abilities of the 
modestly powered 2CV to escape his pursuers.
Instead of the normal the flat-2 engine, the car in the film was fitted 
with the flat-4 engine from a Citroën GS for slightly more power.

Citroën also launched a special edition 2CV "007" 
to coincide with the 2CV product placement in the film, 
it was fitted with the standard flat-2 engine, 
painted in yellow with "007" on the front doors and fake bullet hole stickers.
