Frauscher Mirage stars in new James Bond Heineken advert

Motorboat & Yachting: Baddies give chase in a pair of identical black Frauscher Mirage speedboats as James Bond tows a water-skier.


The newest James Bond movie Spectre comes out next month but for fans who can’t wait that long, Heineken has released a slice of 007 action as part of their latest ad campaign ‘The Chase’.
