BOND in MOTION: 50 Vehicles. 50 Years

BOND in MOTION

50 Vehicles. 50 Years

 

Die Another Day - Pierce Brosnan

 

Ford Thunderbird

Although its screen time is limited, this classy car allows Jinx to make an impressive entrance at Grave's ice palace. This 2002 retro-style Thunderbird was made exclusively for Die Another Day and also features gleaming 21-inch spoke wheels and sleek white seats.

 

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.

 

This new exhibition to Beaulieu is the world's largest official collection of original James Bond vehicles, on display for 2012 only, featuring 50 vehicles from the Bond films.

With fifty vehicles on display, BOND IN MOTION is the largest official collection of original Bond vehicles the world has ever seen. On display until the 6th January 2013 at the National Motor Museum, this could be your only chance to see these vehicles on display together.

2012 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) and what better way to celebrate than with the biggest exhibition of James Bond vehicles ever staged?

Cars used in films starring Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig all feature in the exhibition.
