(1971) - While investigating mysterious activities in the world diamond market, 007 discovers that his evil nemesis Blofeld is stockpiling the gems to use in his deadly laser satellite. With the help of beautiful smuggler Tiffany Case, Bond sets out to stop the madman - as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.


This underwater BATH-O-SUB was used by 007's nemesis, Blofeld, to escape from the oil-drilling platform that doubled as his headquarters. There were two versions built for the film. The first one was filled with concrete and was used to batter the control room during the climatic battle sequence. This second one was outfitted with a nonfunctioning interior and opening canopy. It can be seen as Blofeld climbs inside and is lowered over the side of the oil platform. The first one was destroyed shortly after production of the film had finished. This vehicle was donated to The Ian Fleming Foundation.

The FORD MUSTANG MACH 1 429 COBRA JET has been called one of the last of the Ford "big blocks". It is one of the three 429s that was used during the filming of the exciting Las Vegas car chase sequence. The vehicle was located in Texas and acquired by the Ian Fleming Foundation in the summer of 2003. It was necessary for the production company to change several features on the 429 to make it look like the 351 Mach 1 which was the model originally being used for filming. Once shooting started it was discovered that the 351 was not powerful enough for some of the high speed driving stunts that the producers wanted so the 429 was brought in for these sequences.
