'The 750iL is the centerpiece for a spectacular car chase through a multilevel parking garage,' Pfeiffer says. 'Bond controls the speeding car from the backseat by using Q Branch's special Ericsson cell phone that allows him to also engage a weapons system that includes magnetic flash grenades, tear gas, metal spike dispenser, rockets and a chain cutter. And you thought your monthly cell phone fees were sky-high!'
