The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles will present a new exhibit celebrating the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise through a highly diverse selection of iconic screen-used vehicles. Opening September 25, 2021, in the Mullin Grand Salon gallery, Bond in Motion will be the largest official Bond vehicle display to date in the U.S., and will feature more than 30 cars, motorcycles, boats, submarines, helicopters, and even scale filming models of aircraft from an array of both classic and contemporary Bond films. The exhibition will remain at the museum through October 22, 2022.
Highlighted automobiles include the 1977 Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from 'The Spy Who Loved Me', 1985 Aston Martin V8 from 'The Living Daylights', 1999 BMW Z8 from 'The World Is Not Enough', and the 2019 Aston Martin DB10 from 'SPECTRE'.
“James Bond is an international pop culture icon and the vehicles he drives are an integral part of his character,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The Petersen is excited to showcase so many of the series’ most well-known vehicles. We are sure that there will be something to satisfy every generation of Bond fan.”
Tickets are on sale now and entry to the Bond In Motion is included in general admission.
