James Bond Vehicles at the Beaulieu Motor Museum

January 19, 2012 by

Fifty of the most iconic James Bond vehicles will go on display at the Beaulieu Motor Museum in South England on January 17.

Bond in Motion will run until December and celebrate 50 years of 007 movies – the largest of its kind staged anywhere in the world.

It will also be the 40th anniversary of the world-famous museum.

“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?

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”.

Watch the movie.
