Aston Martin has displayed some of James Bond’s most famous cars in London’s Covent Garden, celebrating the great British brand’s half century with Bond. Bond in Motion is the largest collection of original Bond vehicles in the world, currently celebrating its first anniversary at the London Film Museum.
Among the line-up on show for one 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 and 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, starring Daniel Craig and the new Aston Martin DB10, of which only ten are being built. The DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.
Spectre is due for general release on 6 November 2015 – around the time that we might expect the first glimpses of the mainstream successor to the DB9.
