Aston Martin DB5 from Goldeneye

The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu and EON Productions unveiled their plans at Empire presents BIG SCREEN to hold the largest exhibition of James Bond vehicles ever displayed, to celebrate the fiftieth year of the Bond franchise. It will run from January to December 2012.

The display at BIG SCREEN includes the 2008 Aston Martin DBS from Quantum of Solace, the 2002 Jaguar XKR with SFX weapons from Die Another Day, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from Goldeneye — a car we have previously revealed the history behind — and the 1937 Phantom lll Rolls-Royce from Goldfinger.  These are just a small selection of the 50 vehicles that will be on display at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu.

Beaulieu’s Commercial Director, Stephen Munn said, “Following the success of the first Bond cars exhibition staged at Beaulieu in 2001, we are delighted to be working with EON again on this new display, bringing together the world’s largest collection of Bond vehicles.”

2012 also marks the 40th anniversary of the world-famous National Motor Museum, so it is fitting that in this special year it will be hosting a major new exhibition marking 50 years since the first James Bond film was screened.
