Ben Collins revealed himself to be The Stig from Top Gear, as he felt his days on the show were numbered. He went on to publish an autobiography on his experiences as The Stig and now his newest gig is on the movie set of the upcoming James Bond film.

Collins was seen working as a stuntman and driver on the set of Skyfall, the new 007 movie, which had scenes being filmed in Istanbul, Turkey. In a particular stunt, Collins piloted a Land Rover straight into the side of a black Audi, apparently one of at least 15 that were destroyed during filming of the sequence.

This isn’t Collins’ first James Bond rodeo either, he also worked on Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale in the past. Skyfall is set to be released sometime in October.
