'Die Another Day' glass breaking world record broken

15-Sep-2011 • Die Another Day

Rocky Taylor broke a Guinness World Record by jumping a spinning BMW at speed through a 19ft 69in by 13ft 12in sheet of breakaway glass, the largest ever smashed by a car, reports the Telegraph (click to watch video).

The previous record for the stunt was set during the filming of Die Another Day, on which Mr Taylor also worked.

It featured actor Pierce Brosnan driving Bond's Aston Martin through a 8ft 3.5in by 5ft 4.5in glass panel in the Ice Palace scene.

The stunt was recreated at the O2 Area in Greenwich south London to help promote Remember A Charity In Your Will.

Mr Taylor, who lives in Cobham, Surrey, is the only stuntman to double for two Bonds in same year: he played Roger Moore in Octopussy and Sean Connery in Never Say Never Again.
