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

I have the 2003 James Bond Thunderbird, approximately 4000 miles. Having issues starting the car, headlights flashing on/off, turn signal very sluggish blinking... When I finally get it started, drive it a while just fine, pull into my garage at home, turn off the ignition, won't start again. Makes me afraid to drive it due to not being sure it will start whenever I am out on the road somewhere. Has to be one of the numerous electronic modules, but not sure which one. Ford dealer in my area is useless; no help at all! Can you advise me?
