London Film Museum
Bond in Motion is the official exhibition of James Bond vehicles that feature in the renowned film series. It is the largest display of its kind ever staged in London. It now includes a new display called The Cars of SPECTRE from November 18th 2015.
The Cars of SPECTRE is the first UK exhibition of vehicles, props, models and costumes from the latest film release, including amongst others, James Bond's Aston Martin DB10, villain Hinx's Stunt Jaguar C-X75, and Franz Oberhauser's Rolls Royce Wraith.
James Bond first hit the big screen in 1962, when Ian Fleming's 007 was introduced to cinema audiences around the world as the double o agent in Dr No. Half a century and six Bonds later, the franchise is now one of the longest running in cinema history. In the main exhibition space the numerous vehicles on display include the archetypal Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger's majestic Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the unforgettable Lotus Esprit S1 submersible from The Spy Who Loved Me.
Displayed alongside less predictable 007 modes of transport such as the Citroen 2CV and the Crocodile Submarine the exhibit also includes a variety of aircraft, boats and motorcycles. These creative action vehicles play a pivotal role in all 23 movies and continue to propel James Bond to the cutting-edge of cinematic espionage. There are no replicas - every vehicle exhibited is an original used for filming.
The majority are loaned from the archive of EON Productions who produce the movies and the Ian Fleming Foundation who have located and restored many of the vehicles. The upper mezzanine features several examples of the creative process of the production company's art department - never-before-seen concept art and storyboards.
Bond In Motion displays both the adrenalin-pumping high performance machinery and the unique 007 defining inventions that are essential to the continuing James Bond story.
