Cinematic cars: Alfa Romeo GTV6 in "Octopussy" (1983)

Bradley first called this one. Somewhat amusingly, [the entertainingly-titled] “Octopussy” came out the same year as “Never Say Never Again” (which was with Connery, not Moore). The tires on the Alfa now look comically narrow, but it still looks perfectly happy being pitched into a corner sideways. And god does the car sound good. It doesn’t appear that they altered its V6 soundtrack for the big screen – why mess with a good thing? – and for that we’re certainly grateful.

Mein auto!

  1. I used to own one of those : (

  2. Ditto.
    What is shown on screen is pure fantasy.
    With its crappy gearbox the reality is Bond would still be at that phone booth trying to find a gear rather than than tearing down the road. LOL
