The Moon Buggy was conceptualized by Academy Award-winning production designer Ken Adam and built by famed California custom car designer/fabricator Dean Jeffries. The Moon Buggy was used in the famous chase sequence as James Bond (Sean Connery) escapes from Willard Whyte's Tectronics Space Center outside Las Vegas in the Nevada desert.

Moon Buggy Diamonds Are Forever Sean Connery James Bond

The 4-wheeled vehicle is constructed from a welded tubulal steel frame clad in aluminum paneling ad cockpit covered with a Plexiglass dome hinged on one side and a radar dish unit mounted behind. An 'arm' with claw implement in attached on each side and a red sphere is attached at the rear. Unlike many other Bond vehicles, there was only one Moon Buggy built. Following production it was used as the centrepiece of a worldwide publicity tour to promote the film. Over time it fell in a state of disrepair until it was eventually located by Graham Rye, editor and publisher of 007 MAGAZINE, who organised the restoration to its original condition (read more on 007 Magazine here and here).

The Moon Buggy was sold for £23,900 on December 14th, 2004 during a Christie's South Kensington auction. The buyer was Planet Hollywood owner Robert Earl for display at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas casino, but the buggy was never put on display.

The Goldeneye outfit is not even close to the ones Bond and Trevelyan wore in the PTS. Definitely a fake and not even a good one. Someboddy should inform them not to sell!!!
