Forget making movies – all Daniel Craig has to do to make millions is drive Range Rovers.

Forget making movies – all Daniel Craig has to do to make millions is drive Range Rovers.

The movie star, best known for playing superspy 007, was reportedly paid $1 million to help launch the 2014 Range Rover Sport at the New York Motor Show.

That’s an astronomical amount for what the UK media is calling a ‘007-minute appearance.’

Craig’s involvement started in a special promotional video, which saw the 45-year-old drive the new Range Rover from the company’s UK manufacturing plant into New York -click through the gallery to watch the video

Craig then personally delivered the new model to the show, stopping traffic in downtown Manhattan to drive the car onto its display.

He then appeared for a short photocall before disappearing, $1 million richer.

Representatives of the charity S.A.F.E attended the show, of which Craig is a spokesperson.
