At the London Film Museum: Bond In Motion
London Film Museum’s Bond in Motion is the largest display of James Bond vehicles ever staged in London.
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 Citroën 2CV and the Crocodile Submarine the exhibit also includes a variety of aircraft, boats and motorcycles.
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.
