Australian TV is now showing an advertisement of a VW Tourag pulling a Boeing 747, see http://www.volkswagen.com.au/touareg/TV/vwtvc.asp.

But notice the twin podded engine arrangement!

Would anybody know the background to this aircraft? Why are the engines twin podded?

It seems to be ex-British Airways Boeing 747-200 G-BDXJ that is now a movie prop located at Dunsfold Aerodrome. It had dummy engine pods installed for the movie Casino Royale and received fake registration N9747P that has been reserved by the Federal Aviation Administration for use in motion pictures.
