James Bond and....Volvo?

James Bond celebrates 50 years of movie action this year with the latest movie "Skyfall". Of course, most people associate Bond with a silver Aston Martin, but there are a couple of Volvo connections with the history of 007.
The most recent connection was in the 2008 Bond film, "Quantum of Solace", in which Daniel Craig can be seen driving a Volvo S40 R-Design during a scene in Austria. It's a brief appearance, but a Volvo in a Bond film nonetheless.

Another connection is with Roger Moore, who has appeared as James Bond more than any other actor in the role. Prior to taking the role in 1972, Moore had appeared in the television series "The Saint". In that show, Moore's character drove a stunning Volvo P1800 coupe. So there you have it, 007 and Volvo share a connection...or a bond, if you will.
