BOND in MOTION
50 Vehicles. 50 Years
GoldenEye - Pierce Brosnan
Aston Martin DB5
In 1995 Pierce Brosnan made his debut as 007 in GoldenEye. In a thrilling opening sequence Bond, reunited with the Aston Martin DB5, races against a Ferrari 355 GTS driven by 'Xenia', the villains henchwoman, down the mountain roads near Nice and Monte Carlo.
The World of James Bond 007 is full of action, excitement, drama and danger. The high octane, all action car and vehicle chases are at the heart of the Bond franchise.
There is unique story behind every vehicle and every death defying stunt culminates in the exhilarating screen image. From speed boats leaping roads and cars submerging to exotic locations, ranging from tropical islands to the North Pole the action never ceases. Vehicles with gadgets and armouries add to the thrills with Bond having to be ever more resourceful in his battles with the increasingly technical and sophisticated villains.
BOND in MOTION is the story of the vehicles that keep the man behind the wheel moving and how the thrill a minute chase sequences pushed man and machine to the limit.
