In celebration of the 50th year of James Bond films, a new exhibit of James Bond vehicles is opening Jan. 17, 2012 at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Brockenhurst, Hampshire, U.K.
The exhibit include 50 vehicles--both Bond- and villain-driven. Several of the vehicles, such as the Ford Mustang Mach 1 from "Diamonds Are Forever," villain Zukovsky's Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II from "The World Is Not Enough," and the vintage 1962 Rolls Royce, pushed into a lake by May Day and Zorin with Bond still inside, in "A View to a Kill," have never been on public display.
In addition to the cars, the museum will have other Bond movie props, including a Union Jack parachute, a surfboard loaded with concealed weapons, and the Casino Royale Skyfleet S570 model, based on a Boeing 747.
The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu hosts a permanent collection of more 250 vehicles. The Bond vehicle collection will be on display through December 2012.
