The National Motor Museum held their launch
event for the new exhibition Bond In Motion, celebrating 50 years
of James Bond vehicles on the silver screen, at Beaulieu (Hampshire,
England) on Sunday 15th January 2012. MI6 was in attendance alongside
other luminaries from the 007 community.
Bond girls Britt Ekland ("The Man With
The Golden Gun"),
Madeline Smith ("Live And Let Die", Jenny Hanley ("On
Her Majesty's Secret Service") and Eunice Gayson ("Dr.
No", "From Russia With Love") were joined by fellow
007 alumni Colin Salmon ("Tomorrow Never Dies", "The
World Is Not Enough", "Die Another Day"), Shane
Rimmer ("You Only Live Twice", "The Spy Who Loved
Me"), stunt coordinator and second unit director Vic Armstrong
and SFX wizard Chris Courbold. Commander Ken Wallis also showcased
the famous Little Nellie gyrocopter, which is part of the exhibition.
Lord Montagu, owner of the museum, cut the ribbon and declared
the exhibition open alongside the Bond girls. Bond In Motion
is open throughout 2012 as James Bond celebrates his 50th anniversary.

"For the James Bond franchise, I think
beautiful women are more important than the cars. Men like both.
But if they had to choose - they'd probably choose the car." --
