... and flat-out stealing the awesomobile for his personal use.
Cut To ...
Bond, a suspended agent being carefully watched, somehow got a secret spy car filled with weapons and flamethrower fuel all the way to Rome in less than two days' time.
"I made good time by making only five sex stops."
That may seem doable at first glance (if you've never tried to drive across Europe before), but Bond had to break into goddamn MI6 and somehow steal a one-of-a-kind spy vehicle before even attempting to keep that time table. Unless this super agency simply leaves the keys under the mat, that alone would undoubtedly require all kinds of planning, equipment, and security hacking, right? But even assuming that Bond is somehow able to magically breeze through the theft, he would then have to either fly the car to Rome (which would mean taking it through customs and consequently being detained) or drive the thing through the Channel Tunnel, which also has rigorous security checks for the vehicles passing through.
One assumes all the detonation-looking switches would raise some red flags.
The act of stealing and trafficking exotic weapons in major countries is something you could devote a whole film to, and Bond does it in the span of a snappy transition.
