    “The last remaining important vehicle from a James Bond film in private ownership, the Moon Buggy has a unique and impressive pedigree. Conceived by Oscar-Winning Production Designer Ken Adam, and built by legendary Hollywood film custom-car designer Dean Jefferies and his team, the Moon Buggy not only featured in a thrilling chase from Willard Whyte’s space complex in the Nevada desert but was also the centrepiece of the advertising campaign for Diamonds Are Forever worldwide, appearing on the poster and all press advertisements for the film. Unlike other famous film vehicles the Moon Buggy is truly unique – only one was ever built! Discovered languishing in a state of disrepair in the early Eighties, the Moon Buggy was refurbished in 1992 before being loaned to Planet Hollywood for display in their Las Vegas restaurant in Caesar’s Palace from 1993 to 2003, and is now in storage in the UK. The Moon Buggy is sold with provenance and an extensive portfolio of photographs charting its history.”

    Thanks to Predator007 for the tip.
