NEWS: Bond In Motion @ Beaulieu
The Aston Martin DB5, as used in the classic Goldfinger Bond film, has taken centre stage at the Bond In Motion exhibition at The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.
They say: "This stunning original film car, a must-see for Bond fans and classic car enthusiasts everywhere, will be on display for a limited time only, so if you don’t want to miss out, visit Beaulieu before the end of the Easter holidays to see this elegant motor showcased alongside 49 other vehicles used in the Bond films. The car has been kindly loaned to the exhibition by the Louwman Museum, Holland, and returns just as an exciting new exhibit has been revealed. Joining the three Skyfall vehicles currently on display – two Honda CRF250R motorcycles and the Land Rover Defender 110 – is a third scale miniature model of the Aston Martin DB5 which was used in filming Skyfall."
BOND IN MOTION is the world’s largest exhibition of original James Bond vehicles ever staged, and features a whole range of vehicles from the films, including cars, boats, motorbikes, sleds, jets and many more.
Other star exhibits include the gadget-laden Jaguar XKR driven by Bond villain Zao in Die Another Day, the Aston Martin DBS from Quantum of Solace, the Bede Acrostar jet famously flown in Octopussy, and the BMW 750iL from Tomorrow Never Dies, plus iconic vehicle action clips from the James Bond films. This exclusive, one-off exhibition will remain open to visitors until 5th January 2014.
Bond In Motion can be seen as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction, which includes the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abbey, Palace House and the gardens.
