James Bond cars show in Beaulieu

The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu will host the world's largest-ever exhibition of James Bond vehicles next year.

The year-long exhibition titled Bond in Motion, which will mark the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Bond franchise, will open on January 17 and will run through December.

Visitors can have a look at 50 of the most iconic James Bond vehicles, including the Ford Mustang Mach 1 used in the Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever, the 2008 Aston Martin DBS from Quantum of Solace, the 1962 Rolls Royce from A View to a Kill and villain Zukovsky's Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II from The World Is Not Enough.

The Union Jack Parachute used by villain Gustav Graves in the movie Die Another Day and the 'Burial-At-Sea Bed' from You Only Live Twice are among the other items that will be exhibited for the first time.
