The wait is finally over and BOND IN MOTION is now open! With fifty vehicles on display at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, BOND IN MOTION is the largest official collection of original Bond vehicles the world has ever seen. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series and the 40th anniversary of the National Motor Museum (and the 60th anniversary of Beaulieu opening its doors to the public). What better way to celebrate than with the biggest exhibition of James Bond vehicles ever staged?
Alongside the most famous vehicles like the Aston Martin DB5 and the Lotus Esprit S1, there is a host of treasures dating back to From Russia With Love including the elegant Fairey Huntress Speedboat, Goldfinger’s 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III, the buzzing autogyro from You Only Live Twice and Octopussy’s screeching Acrostar Jet alongside cars, bikes, trikes, sleds and boats. Cars used in films starring Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig all feature in the exhibition, and there are a few record-breakers on display too including the Aston Martin DBS Stunt Car from Casino Royale.
These gems are on display in Beaulieu, UK (near Southampton) until December 2012, so this could be your only chance to see these vehicles on display together.
