The Daily Mail reports that a British solicitor was clocked at 237 kilometres per hour in a green Aston Martin V12 on a French motorway last week.

Police stopped the lead-footed lawyer, described as being in his 50s and from the London area, with people hooting their horns and yelling out "James Bond" after he was pulled over.

"People like to see a nice car, even when the driver has been found speeding," a witness said. "In France, Aston Martin means one thing - James Bond."

The car must have also impressed the local gendarmerie, as even though the local authorities had the power to confiscate the car, they let the lawyer swap seats with his passenger, who apparently completed the rest of the journey through to Italy without incident.

The lawyer later had his licence confiscated and was fined close to $1000.

Folklaw wonders how he explained all of this to Miss Moneypenny?
