Aston Martin, the ultra-luxury British automajor, displayed some of James Bond’s most famous cars in London’s Covent Garden last weekend (Saturday & Sunday, March 21 & 22). It was the occasion of celebration of first anniversary of Bond in Motion - the largest collection of original Bond vehicles in the world - at the London Film Museum.
Among the line-up on show for the weekend only was an original Aston Martin Vanquish from Die Another Day, as well as the iconic Aston Martin DBS sports cars used in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. There was also a selection of current Aston Martin models on display, as well as a line-up of classic Aston Martins courtesy of members of the Aston Martin Owners Club. Due to popular demand, Bond in Motion will now remain open at the London Film Museum until further notice. Curated by EON Productions, the display features a number of exhibits previously unseen by the public.
The exhibition features more than 100 original artefacts spanning all 23 Bond films including vehicles, miniatures, concept art and storyboards. New exhibits expected in 2015 include vehicles from the new Bond film, SPECTRE. Recently, makers of SPECTRE announced that they have designed a special car - Aston Martin DB10 - for Bond in this new flick, while the villains would roam in Range Rover Sport SVR, Land Rover Defender, and Jaguar CX-75. SPECTRE opens on November 6, 2015 worldwide, including India.
