      Here is a article that talks about the Sunbeam that was used in the new Get Smart movie. They used a Alpine with Tiger trim.

      Interesting… The article refers to Leno saying the V8 power in a car the size of the Tiger is dangerous. 😯 Isn’t he the guy with the gas turbine Rolls Royce engine in a motorbike?

      Of course it was an Alpine, how could you fit a machine gun into the engine bay of a Tiger! 😉

      Yes, we know that. The point point is that the car in new movie is also a Alpine.

      Valerie and I saw the film last evening. Without giving away any significant aspects of the plot… The car only got less than a minute or so of screen time. The SUNBEAM and TIGER emblems are plainly visible however. So it is a bit of recognition for the marque visible to the eyes of the general public. At least that’s positive.

      Yes the car you see being driven was a rebadged Alpine. The Tiger shown in the museum scene, filmed in Canada, was an actual Tiger.
