A 2002 Thunderbird was driven in the Bond film Die Another Day by Bond girl Halle Berry (Jinx). In the spring of 2003, Ford sold 700 limited edition 007 Ford Thunderbirds to commemorate the first appearance of a Thunderbird in the 40-year history of the James Bond film franchise.
The Coral paint, similar to the Sunset Coral hue offered on the 1956 Thunderbird, matches the bikini Berry wears in her role as Jinx. The car in the movie had a coral hard-top instead of the white top offered with the special edition and was a 2002 model, not the 2003 that the 007 edition comes as.
The Limited Edition 007 Thunderbird features unique coral paint, 21-spoke chrome wheels, performance white seats and interior accents, with an understated "007" badge placed on the instrument panel. Each vehicle also will feature a numbered, commemorative plaque mounted on the inside of the glove box.
