WARNING!!! this is painfull to watch .... sort of..

Alfa chasing Aston ... does it get any better...

im sure someone else is watching Quantum of Solace... crap film really but love the opening. As painful and cool as it is


Sorry i just had to throw this up

James Bond - Quantum of solace opening (HD!) - YouTube

other than the Aston i think alfa has to be one of the most used bond cars ! what do you think?

Not bad for an 159 to keep up with an Aston Martin
If the bad guys had used a 155 Q4 we would not have had any Bond now.

Also, this is not the first time Bond has been in contact with Alfas. Here is an earlier encounter.
Octopussy (1983) Car Chase - Alfa Romeo GTV6 - [HD] - YouTube

Dident fare so wel for the BMWs involved

wouldnt be hard to keep up with bonds car.. a ford fiesta could have... LOL it was in traffic

but i do believe that those 159's were Q2's? or Q4's not sure which was the big one they made. might not have said it on the backs of them but i remember seeing of the making of it. they wrote off 6 cars making that and 3 people ended up in hospital including Daniel craig.. that scene was jinxed or something.

yeah i remember that GTV allright. prety cool

Ruairi the other poster referred to the 155 Q4 (the engine from the Delta Integrale I think?)

Was in a 3.2 V6 Q4 before cool enough but the weight of the 4wd system does kill the performance a bit but makes the car very stable. There was a bad crash on the set of that film 159 lamped into a truck I think.
