Former Stig Back Behind The Wheel In New Bond Movie
Ben Collins, who was rather unceremoniously dumped from his role as The Stig on Top Gear is back behind the wheel on the set of new Bond Film Skyfall, the Daily Mirror has an on set report and pictures of filming in Turkey.
The former racing driver was in the driving seat for several of the film’s daring chase sequences being filmed in Istanbul, Turkey. Ben, who revealed he was white-suited Stig in 2010 after winning a court battle with the BBC, rammed a grey Land Rover into the side of a black Audi, almost destroying it.
No fewer than 15 £35,000 Audis were destroyed during the filming of the sequence, including six during pre-filming tests.
At one point, one of the cars was seen with its left side smashed to pieces after the stunt team flipped it over and sent it sliding into a spice market stall.
Skyfall is due for release at the end of this year.
