Remember the look on the face of James Bond when he saw Melina’s more humble Citroën 2CV after a bugler protection system blew-up his own lotus esprit? Marvelous! 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 in Peugeot 504 sedans. The car in the film was fitted with the flat-4 engine from a Citroën GS for slightly more power. The success of this scene even had the 2CV voted the most popular bond car.
Later, Citroën 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.
