UPDATE and solution (13 December 2011):
Frankly, I have no idea how he’s doing it—Alexander Rabitsch again posted the correct answer in an instant: The villain is Fantômas in the movie of the same name (Hunebelle 1964). During the final chase of the movie Commissioner Juve (Louis de Funès) and the journalist Fandor (Jean Marais) at a filling station highjack the above pictured BMW 507 and continue speeding after Fantômas (played by Jean Marais, too). But the master villain in the end escapes by means of his own submarine. Here you can see him giving orders to the submarine’s skipper:

HUNEBELLE, ANDRÉ. 1964. Fantômas [motion picture]. Paris: Gaumont.

    Good olde BMW 507! Designed by Albrecht Graf von Schlitz gen. von Görtz und von Wrisberg. The bad guy is >>Fantomas<< played by Jean Marais …. A man, good looking in his younger years. As he became older his face looked a bit scraggy. I bet could have had all the women…. but alas for the double-xx-humans: he was homosexual…

      This gets ridiculous. Either I am a downright lousy quizmaster or you probe my system by means of some ingenious hack … or we simply have digested the same eclectic shambles of popular culture. You’re not so versed in the horror genre you said? All right, then horror it is next Monday. Ah, yes, and the solution is of course completely correct.
