On a frozen lake and in the melting icepalace in Iceland Zao is chasing James Bond who is driving the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. Both cars uses their formidable arsenal of weapons in the battle.

The stunning green paintwork is exclusive to this cinema version. A team of engineers blended the regular paint with pure gold - at a cost of nearly £2,000 per litre - to coat the body with this shimmering sheen.

One of the Jaguars from the film was at display in Copenhagen. See our pictures here.
