A 2002 Thunderbird was driven in the Bond film Die Another Day by Bond girl Halle Berry (Jinx). In the spring of 2003, Ford sold 700 limited edition 007 Ford Thunderbirds to commemorate the first appearance of a Thunderbird in the 40-year history of the James Bond film franchise (although, as pointed out below in the comments by Thomas, a Thunderbird was also seen in Goldfinger, driven by Felix Leiter in Kentucky).

The Coral paint, similar to the Sunset Coral hue offered on the 1956 Thunderbird, matches the bikini Berry wears in her role as Jinx. The car in the movie had a coral hard-top instead of the white top offered with the special edition and was a 2002 model, not the 2003 that the 007 edition comes as.

The Limited Edition 007 Thunderbird features unique coral paint, 21-spoke chrome wheels, performance white seats and interior accents, with an understated "007" badge placed on the instrument panel. Each vehicle also will feature a numbered, commemorative plaque mounted on the inside of the glove box.

Apparently 694 cars were actually sold, and 6 only used for show.

Price in 2003: $43,995

Worth a tiny bit over 20K right now with 5K miles in perfect condition.

I have this tbird 5000 miles. Perfect condition. What is it worth now? Anybody know?

I purchased my 007 t-bird brand new in nov 2003. I keep it in a garage and covered. it now has 1900 miles. It looks like the day it came out of the factory. I believe it will be worth a lot of money in the future.

Does anyone remember the Cover Girl advertisements that Halle Berry was in that offered a shade of lipstick in the same color as this car? That was always interesting to me.

I currently own one of the 700 limited edition, James Bond 40th anniversary, 2003 Ford Thunderbird convertibles.

As an avid Bond fan, my car has been garage-protected and taken out on few special trips or the occasional drive to simply keep the engine humming smoothly.

My car has only 2,800 miles on it, and I did have the hard-top custom painted to the coral back in 2003 to match its look in the movie. However, since I have a broader desire to meticulously protect this car rather than enjoy the fun of drivng it, I'm considering selling it.

If I do, I really want to ensure ensure it goes to the right owner who can really appreciate the unique aspect of the collectible and showing it off on the road.

If you know anyone that might be interested in this car, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I own one of these and wonder if there is a club for all the owners of this particular model?

i have a 2003 james bond lim" special james bond 600 ho ski doo snowmobile zero miles never used or in snow has been stores, in heated warehouse what is the value of this now,

I own an '03, 007 limited edition T-Bird and I am proud to say that I have 88,000 miles on it. I have enjoyed driving this car every day since I purchased it new in 2003. I will say, however, that it has had many, many mechanical problems, and has been in and out of the shop. Still, with all the problems it's had, I absolutely love this car and really enjoy driving it. If anyone is curious about the mechanical problems, please feel free to contact me. Wishing you safe driving!

A Thunderbird was featured in "Goldfinger" as the vehicle of choice in Kentucky for Felix Leiter. So, Thunderbird is starring in its second film.

I have one of these and I simply LOVE it. I have never been a 'car buff' before but this convertible takes the cake. It drives like a dream all the time and just makes you feel great. I baby it (of course!) and always garage it. I lived in Florida and it is made for FL or CA. I moved to Alaska and took it with me (of course!). It's really a head turner. Can't imagine ever selling it.

Sandy......interested in knowing about the mechanical problems you have had with your 007. Thinking about buying one with 1600 miles. THANKS for your response!!!!

I have a 57, looking for a bond series get back to me. thanks socal ford fan
a Ford Thuderbird (1971) also appeared in Diamonds are Forever, driven by Messrs Wint and Kidd. that would make 3 appearances of the Ford T-Bird.
The second appearance of a Thunderbird in a Bond Film is just after the title sequence in 1965's Thunderball. Emilio Largo arrives at the Center for the Assistance of Displaced Persons in Paris (a front for Spectre) and parks his 1965 Ford Thunderbird convertible (white with black convertible top) illegally. He is accosted by a French Gendarme who immediately apologizes when he recognizes the man in the eye patch and comes under his glare.
