What am I talking about, you may ask? Well these are just a few of the Bond vehicles that will be on display in January 2012 at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu.
Yes, a trip to the New Forest will be very much on the horizon for anyone who has a passion for the 007 Franchise, and as the production of the films spans several generations from the early 1960s to present day, it has the makings of a great family day out.
According to reports, around 50 vehicles, all used in James Bond films, will arrive in England to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the screening of the first Bond film. These will include cars, boats, motorbikes, sleds, jets and even the cello case which was steered by Timothy Dalton’s Bond incarnation down a snowy mountainside using, you guessed it, a cello, in The Living Daylights.
EON productions, the production company which makes the films, claims that the exhibition, Bond in Motion, will be the largest collection of Bond vehicles ever to be displayed at one time anywhere in the world.
So, if you’re a Bond fan, young or old, there’s bound to be something to interest you, but if you’re a young driver watching clips of Bond-related car chases and stunts, be warned – if you try to fit a rocket launcher in your car you will invalidate your car insurance and trying to drive like 007 is best left to Bond himself!
