The World is Not Enough video

Tomorrow Never Dies features both the BMW 750i and the BMW R 1200 motorcycle.

Information

Information

BMW 750i The BMW 750i featured in Tomorrow Never Dies packs a powerful 326 horsepower 5.4 liter V12 engine. 

Gadgets include a full array of armor, missiles, on-board computer and an ability to drop tire-shredding tacks to deter pursuing cars. 

Best of all, though, was that the car could also be driven by remote control using a Q-customized cellular phone. This is flipped open to expose a comprehensive set of controls (including touch-sensitive steering and a screen which showed a view from a camera mounted just behind the grille of the car).

One great action scene with the 750i and the remote is classic Bond and Bond gadgetry, one of the best of all the movies!

In a heart-pumping chase in Tomorrow Never Dies we see the BMW R 1200 Motorbike, one of the only bikes used in a Bond film. It's a shame because the BMW bike does some really amazing stunts.
