I'm sure someone will be able to clarify, but I remember reading an interview in Miniworld years ago with the author of an Italian Job book. He said some of the cars were apparently left in Turin. Is there any truth in that?


Watch this from 1.04-10

Just found the full 24 minute version of the famous Dunlop promo film from 1968, at about 1.45secs what looks very much like a white Italian Job Cooper S pulls alongside the yellow Mk2 S, the reg' number is 'NOC 74F' and the driver looks like one of the three drivers in the film, possibly David Salome I think...

NOC74F is a Brum registration and form early/mid 1968.

The Aston DB4 is still around and lives in London, it was featured in 'Vantage' magazine a while back...


The one that goes down the ravine is a dressed up left hand drive Lancia Flaminia…



Both the Aston and the Flaminia where designed and built by Touring, hence the similarity in body shape.


The Miura was rediscovered in 2015. Again there is no cast iron provenance, but there are bits of evidence that say it could be the actual car.
