The Miura in The Italian Job.

“The Paramount people came to Sant’Agata towards the end of May 1968. They wanted to know if we had a battered Miura to sell, one that had been in an accident. What for? For an important film was what they said. And why battered? Because one of the characters in the plot, the actor Rossano Brazzi, is killed in the Gran San Bernardo tunnel as he’s driving through it in his Miura. So that’s not an accident... we don’t like the idea of our cars being associated with accidents. No, no, it’s just a perfect crime!
