In the 1995 James Bond Film Goldeneye, the Aston Martin DB5 driven by James Bond featured an Alpine 7817R CD Tuner which acted as a communication device and colour printer/fax. When Bond takes a picture of Xenia Onatopp from the Fort Antoine Theatre viewpoint, the digital monocular-camera (yet to be identified) sends the image to the Alpine system which prints it out when Bond get's back to his car.

This Alpine car system gets several seconds of close-up screentime in the film, so it makes nice collector's item, if you can find one on eBay or other second-hand marketplaces.

Another car radio prominently seen in a Bond film is the Phliips DC954 in The Living Daylights.
