‘Bond in Motion’ to open on January 17 at National Motor Museum

Article by Christian A., on December 22, 2011

The opening of Bond in Motion, an exhibition of 50 best-loved and most iconic James Bond vehicles at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, is set on January 17, 2012, in celebration of the 50th year of James Bond films. This exhibition, the largest of its kind all over the globe, will run through December 2012.

Among the automobiles in the exhibition are those that the public have never seen before, such as the Ford Mustang Mach 1 from Diamonds are Forever and the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II of villain Zukovsky from The World Is Not Enough. The vintage 1962 Rolls Royce in A View to a Kill will also be showcased. It was the vehicle pushed into a lake by Zorin and May Day with Bond still inside.

The public will also view for the first time other exhibits such as the "Burial-At-Sea Bed" from You Only Live Twice, the Surfboard with concealed weapons and ammunition from Die Another Day and the Union Jack Parachute which villain Gustav Graves used when he landed on The Mall.

The Casino RoyaleSkyfleet S570 model, which was based on a Boeing 747, will also be displayed, as well as the original "Pig" from The Living Daylights, used to smuggle Koskov across the border through the Siberian Pipe Line. Next year will also mark the 40th anniversary of Beaulieu's internationally renowned National Motor Museum, making 2012 a fitting year to be hosting a major new vehicle exhibition with some of the most recognized automobiles from the Bond films.
