Bond, M and Sir Godfrey are driven off along the river Seine in a Peugeot 604 limousine.
The car comes out from a building that is supposed to be the police headquarters, and the Paris police can still be seen coming out of this building, but in fact, the building also houses the French Court of last instance, or the court of last resort. It is called the Conciergerie and is located in the heart of Paris on Île de la Cité.
The Conciergerie is the oldest remaining part of the Palais de la Cité, the first royal palace in the French capital that was used as a prison during the French Revolution. The building with its characteristic round towers can also be found on postcards throughout the city.
