One of Bond's first non-British cars: a1995 Atlanta Blue Metallic, Q-Branch equipped BMW Z3 with Beige Nappa Leather interior and a 1.9 Litre 16-valve four-cylinder engine. The car can be seen twice in the 1995 movie GoldenEye. The brand new model was fully equipped with weaponry as well as other refinements. During the mission in GoldenEye, Bond didn't get the chance to use the Z3 much, and eventually traded it for a small plane.

The special features on the BMW Z3 are unfortunately not really used in the film:
- Bullet proof
- Stinger missiles behind the headlights
- All-points radar system with display
- Self-destruct system
- Emergency parachute braking system

The car that was used in the movie is (or at least was until recently) on display in the BMW Zentrum in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

A very rare Limited Edition of this model was made available by Nieman Marcus. The car featured a commemorative "Specially Equipped 007" dash plaque, 007 floor mats, a beige interior and of course the "Bond Blue-Gray" (Atlanta-306) color.

I HAVE A JAMES BONDZ3. ONE OF 100 MADE. #00714. THIS CAR HAS BEEN STORED INSIDE AND HAS 8000' MILES. DO YOU KNOW THE VALUE?

Steve, assuming you have all original equipment with the car as well as the two Pierce Brosnan dinner tickets, your car is looking to only be around $12,000 to $14,000. It is a very rare car but unfortunately with everything rare, it's hard to put a value on it because not many have sold privately. Unless you sell to a die hard Bond or BMW fanatic, estimate your value to be thousands less than what I stated. Sorry, I know you were hoping to hear a higher value.

I am interested in a James Bond Z3, if anyone wants to sell it?

email me at martijn@sendai.nl
