Chris Evans's collection of Famous Five cars for Children in Need - the Italian Job Mini Cooper, James Bond's Goldeneye Aston Martin DB5, a 1987 Lamborghini Miura, a 1970 E-Type Jag and a 1930 Bentley Meteor

Did you see the helmets on the back seat?
Do you think they were from the film?

There's a website somewhere, probably from this Mini's owner, that goes into incredible geeky detail on how they got everything Bang On to the original fim cars. Think their was a bit on those flip top helmets too. Even the plastic light covers were hunted down to exact 1968 specs!
