Yes, that was the model name in Japan but in Europe I believe it was marketed as Lexus. Help my European friends!

Is this from the scene where Bond attacks the (insert name of fictional African country) embassy in Madagascar?

If this scene was made in the Bahamas it is a Toyota Celsior.

I know that secondhand cars from Japan turn up in the Caribbean, but would Lexuses be sold new under their Japanese Toyota model names?

Oh, no I was joking… hence the ( :D )

But yes there are lots of Toyota branded Lexus in the Bahamas, especially Nassau Bahamas.
So if this scene was filmed there, then the car would almost certainly be a Toyota and not
it’s Lexus twin. This would also explain why the grille emblem has been removed.

The Toyota Celsior (Lexus LS), Toyota Harrier (Lexus RX) and the Toyota Windom (Lexus ES) can all be found in the Bahamas.

in addition to Neptun's list
"Toyota Celsior (Lexus LS), Toyota Harrier (Lexus RX) and the Toyota Windom (Lexus ES)"
Toyota Altezza (Lexus IS), Toyota Aristo (GS), Toyota Soarer (SC), Toyota Land Cruiser Sygnus (LX), Toyota Prado (GX)
Many Toyotas in Europe and US have other names in Japan (for example, Corolla in Japan is known as Corolla, Allex, Runx, Fielder...)
and there are also many models made by japanese carmakers unnown outside Japan.

After analyzing this scene, this car should be listed as a 1990 Lexus LS400 instead of a 1989 Toyota Celsior.

The first noticeable detail is the way that the light reflects off of the blacked out manufacturer badge:
[Image: lrefl.jpg]

The reflections give away the shape of an L, instead of the Toyota emblem.

Additionally, there are a few other details about the car's appearance that help to determine which it is:
- Celsiors were right-hand drive only. LS400s were left-hand drive and right-hand drive [left-hand drive in the film].
- LS400 headlamp lenses were two pieces, unlike Celsior headlamps, which were one piece lenses (note headlamps don't include the upper side marker lamps)
- LS400s had flat and smooth lower marker lamp lenses, as in the film. Celsiors had a different lens design.

To specify the model year, this car is a 1990-1992 UCF10 and not a 1993-1994 UCF11, primarily due to the alignment and design of the glove box:
[Image: gloveboxalign.jpg]

Note that the green lines in the image represent the top of the console, which aligns with the top of the glove box on 90'-92' models. The top of the glove box is represented by the red lines. The red line does not align with the green line in the image of the 93'-94' interior (center), but it does in the image of the 90'-92' interior (right).

Thanks, robi! I got very curious about this one, so I decided to take a closer look.
