As has been proven several times in the past, in addition to his ability to drive rare vehicles, James Bond also knows and nurtures a particular weakness for motorcycles, boats, and aircraft. Aston Martin DB5 “Goldfinger”, Aston Martin V8, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, Defender, and Jaguar XF are just some of the vehicles we will enjoy in the upcoming “No Time to Die” which is expected to premiere in a few weeks. On the occasion of the long-awaited premiere of the 25th 007 films, the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles will present the “Bond in Motion” exhibition, starting on September 25 and closing on October 30, 2022. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover the most extensive collection of 007 cars ever presented – 30 in total – and learn details about how they were built and their history.

The exhibition, the result of a collaboration between EON Productions and the Ian Fleming Foundation, comes to shine a light on some of the great cars, bikes, boats, submarines and planes piloted by Bond throughout this journey that began in 1962 with Dr . No. In more detail, you will be able to admire up close the iconic DB5 of 1964, the Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from “The Spy Who Loved Me”, the Aston Martin V8 from “The Living Daylights” and the Heron XC-70 Parachute Parahawk from “The World Is Not Enough”.
