Another: Nigel Mansell. He took delivery of a pearlescent red one in March '09 when he was living in Jersey.

I test drove Linford Christies 'old' RS6 today - still had the plate on "RUN 1" :)
He also once had an S8/A8 but managed to crash it leaving a petrol station not far from me. That was 100 RUN I think.

Not sure if it counts but I chatted to Chris Harris at a Top Gear filming and asked him what the best 1 car garage is and he said RS6 Estate. I shook his hand and offered him a drive in mine but he declined. Haha.
He doesn't actually have 1 though because he obviously has more than 1 car in his garage!

Ah - it was not he who drove the C5 in Layer Cake, but George Harris as "Morty."

DC certainly has had RS6s of his own though - he deffo had a C6 saloon when he was newly James Bond.

Apparently Lewis Hamilton's dad used to own an Avus silver C5.
