London, October 2011. The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu and EON Productions are proud to announce that Bond in Motion, the exciting new exhibition of 50 James Bond vehicles, will be unveiled to the public on 18th January 2012.

The exhibition, the largest of its kind staged anywhere in the world, will showcase 50 of the best loved and most iconic James Bond vehicles in celebration of the 50th year of James Bond films. Bond in Motion will run from January to December 2012 at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

In addition, 2012 also marks the 40th anniversary of the world-famous National Motor Museum, a fitting year to be hosting a major new car exhibition with some of the most recognised vehicles from the Bond films.

Bond in Motion will feature a whole range of vehicles which have appeared in Bond films over the years including cars, boats, motorbikes, sleds, jets and many more. This collection of iconic movie vehicles will include the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 and the 1937 Phantom lll Rolls-Royce both from Goldfinger, the Lotus Esprit S1 affectionately nicknamed ‘Wet Nellie’ from The Spy Who Loved Me, the Bede Acrostar jet famously flown in Octopussy, the BMW 750iL from Tomorrow Never Dies, the original villain Parahawk featured in The World is Not Enough and the original SFX Cello Case Ski famously navigated by Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights.

Beaulieu’s Commercial Director, Stephen Munn said, “2012 is going to be a very exciting year for Beaulieu.  After many months of planning, the preparation of the Bond exhibition area is about to begin and the first consignment of vehicles will be arriving in a few weeks

The exhibition runs from January 18, 2012

I have just been sent over some images to illustrate some of the vehicles that will be on display. Ranging from Goldfinger's Rolls Royce to a Montesa motorbike used in Quantum of Solace.
