Trivia BMC (British Motor Corporation), the owners of the Mini, refused to donate any cars to the film. The boss of Fiat Motors, offered to donate all the cars they needed, including Fiat 500s in place of the Minis. The director, however, decided that, as it was a very British film, it should be British Minis. Fiat's boss still donated scores of cars for filming, as well as the factory grounds, and even though the authorities refused to close the roads, the Italian Mafia stepped in, and shut whole sections of Turin down for filming, so the traffic jams in the film are real, as are people's actions during it.

Goofs The bonnet of Charlie's Aston Martin is hinged at the nose of the car. When the car gets thrown off the cliff, the hinges are near the cockpit. This is because the car which was thrown off the cliff was in fact a Lancia Flavia convertible See more »
