The Stig Returns

8th February 2012

British racing car driver Ben Collins, better known to "Top Gear" fans as The Stig, is back in the employment of James Bond. The driver, who has worked on all of Daniel Craig's outings as 007, was seen behind the wheel on location with the "Skyfall" production team in London dressed in the same outfit as Bond this week.

MI6 understands that in the scenes photographed here, Bond - Collins doubling Craig - is behind the wheel of M's personal car, a Jaguar XJL (not the XF as some media are reporting). The scenes were captured in Tower Hill where Craig was spotted filming a scene chasing a taxi whilst wielding his PPK.

Also returning in "Skyfall" is 007's Aston Martin DB5. As first revealed by MI6 back in December, the world's most famous car will be seeing action again with Bond and M onboard. Filming already took place in in the London Borough of Lewisham before Christmas, but the shot below was captured this week close to Goldsmith College.
