Citroen 2CV - For Your Eyes Only (1981)

Bond states that "we're being out horse powered" as companion Melina's seemingly indestructible Citroen gets bashed and pushed off the road by a pair of Peugeot 504s. The 2CV used in the car chase was fitted with a Citroen GS 1,015cc flat-four engine producing 54bhp - doubling the original 29bhp output.

Stiffer shock absorbers and rollbars improved the handling allowing the 2CV to outrun the pursuers. Four identical cars were used, including this one employed purely for studio back projection and dialogue close-up filming. Citroen produced a special edition version with fake bullet holes.
