"Bond In Motion" Car Collection @ Beaulieu

The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is attracting huge global interest in its "Bond In Motion" display, launched in mid-January – featuring Bond cars like the 2006 Aston Martin DBS used during the filming of Casino Royale, a severely damaged Aston Martin DBS stunt car which rolled seven and three quarter turns to set a Guinness World Record, the BMW 750iL used in the memorable car park chase scene in Tomorrow Never Dies where Pierce Brosnan’s Bond was seen driving the vehicle remotely from the back seat, using his Ericsson cellular phone, 'Little Nelly' the micro-copter used in You Only Live Twice and lots more besides, like jet skis, bikes, boats etc. Beaulieu’s Commercial Director, Stephen Munn says: "There has been an extraordinary amount of interest in this exhibition, from the general public and press alike, which is incredibly exciting. We have seen a dramatic rise in website hits and an increase of over 100% in our visitor numbers since the opening, at what is normally a quiet time of year. We hope the exhibition will continue to have a significant impact on our visitor numbers throughout the rest of the year." The Beaulieu exhibition is the largest of its kind staged anywhere in the world and celebrates the 50th year of James Bond films. Visitors get treated to exclusive behind-the-scenes footage showing just how some of the most memorable stunts in the films were created, including interviews with stunt co-ordinators and members of the stunt teams. 'Bond In Motion' will run until December 2012 and can be seen as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction.  Advance tickets, at a special rate, are available to buy online at www.beaulieushop.co.uk. For further information on the exhibition visit www.bondinmotion.co.uk
