A classic Landrover after Miss Moneypenny had finished with it and a few others.

Eh? This requires a bit of an explanation! It’s on a showroom floor?

It is one of the Landrovers used in the filming of a James Bond movie Spectre, driven (in theory) by his female assistant Miss Moneypenny. It is on display at the British Motor Museum. Apparently they used 10 in filming just one sequence. They didn't all survive!

Ah, thanks Mike. I am not a Bond buff, so the Miss Moneypenny reference was lost on me. I think I may have seen exactly 3 Bond movies in my life and the only one I can remember any detail of was The Spy Who Loved Me with Roger Moore. That Lotus was a cool car!

That's in pretty good nick for both a Landrover and a Bond car.  Consider the mess he made of the Aston Martin DBS V12 in the opening sequence of Quantum of Solace ( which also involved wrecking another Landrover).  Fix the windscreen and the headlight glass and this one will probably pass its MOT ( U.K. Annual roadworthiness check).
