Robi - you are a master of the understatement. The white car is a 1968+ Sunbeam Stiletto - not just "interesting" but worth declaring a national holiday to celebrate its discovery.

"Silver coupé with vinyl-roof:" is the rear of /vehicle_194072-Pontiac-Bonneville-26237-1965.html

"Green car with vinyl roof, from the 50s, left to the AMC Matador:" is a 1957 Oldsmobile

^^ for the Stiletto - we've only got 4 others.

White Mercedes-Benz station wagon and another grey (French-looking) station wagon in front of it: = early Renault 12.

Blue sedan with vinyl-roof parked left of the AMC Hornet: mid 60s Holden.

Yellow sedan with vinyl-roof parked behind the AMC Hornet: Ford Cortina Mk3. Very interesting because I doubt if we've got any other photo with a Mk3 Cortina and a Taunus TC1 in the same shot.

@Robi: Well, the production figures are rather low according to a fan-site: http://www.imps4ever.info/misc/prod.html (although they don't seem to pay attention to the fact that the Stiletto was produced until 1972) To be honest: I'm not surprised at all about that. Now there are definitely some cars in history that didn't sell in spite of their qualities, but the Stiletto and all the other members of the weird Imp-Family certainly don't belong to that category. At least that's my opinion (but please don't tell dsl!).

@cl82 Not everyone can appreciate the finer things in life. Some - probably most - people will never appreciate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHqMNBCW2sY or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAfiIo8FtYs . So be it - they can have Nissan Jukes, Land Rover Grotesques, daytime television and keep replaying all their Michael Jackson and Beatles CDs.

Stiletto production probably never passed 11,000 - last 2 years after the quoted figures were low key.

Come on, you know it wasn't meant that serious. Thanks for the music!
Now let's take a look at Robi's list:
-The Audi is really hard to tell; most probably a 1st-generation 100 aka C1 aka Typ F104.
-The white Mercedes belongs to the W115-series, the R12 Break next to it has already been mentioned.
-Next one is indeed an early Opel Kadett B.
-No idea about the brown car in the next shot (could it be the back of a Cortina?).
-Bronze car in the next picture could be a Toyota.
-The grey BMW belongs to the early 02-Series.
-Yellow sedan with black roof is a Ford Cortina MkIII aka TC
-The black sedan that you puzzled together seems to be another Opel Kadett B.
-The silver BMW-sedan next to the white Toyota HiAce belongs to the E3-Series.

Does the white car on the left looks like a Vauxhall or Opel, or is it something completely different?

Factual error: The film's car chase takes place in Thailand, where vehicles are right-hand-drive (RHD) and travel on the left side of the road (as in England and Australia). Yet the American Motors (AMC) cars in the chase (the red Hornet X, gold Matador coupe and several Matador sedan police cars, all 1974-models) are all left-hand-drive cars. Scaramanga's car can be excused as something he specifically imported for himself, but the Hornet is 'borrowed' from a fictitious AMC dealership (none existed outside the USA) and the small amount of AMC vehicles sold outside the USA were shipped disassembled to various companies that reassembled them and sold them under their own company names (AMI in Australia, Karmann in Germany, etc). Companies such as these, in RHD nations, had to modify the cars to RHD themselves in order to be allowed to sell them 'locally'. So the Hornet would have been at a non-AMC dealership, and would have been RHD, as would the fleet of police cars. Naturally, this 'error' was created by AMC's promotional deal with the filmmakers to use AMC cars in order to improve US sales to the US filmgoers.

There's a car in Q's workshop, which is covered. Could be possible that it's the flying car, Q talks about later in the movie. Any idea what it could be?
