Classic Bond cars to be shown in museum

August 15, 2011 12:00 AM

The James Bond film franchise has given the moviegoing public classic adventures over the years, and supplied some of the more memorable moments in movie history. The series is famous for a number of classic tropes, whether it's the famous "Bond. James Bond," line or the many "Bond girls" who have graced the screen over the years.

The Bond films have always had a close relationship with automobiles - it seems like in every film the super spy is behind the wheel of another luxury car tricked out with missiles and hidden oil slicks. Now, the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, England, is teaming up with EON Productions for an exhibit next year that will display some of the more famous rides Bond has gotten his hands on, reports Autoblog.

The museum already has recent Bond rides like the Aston Martin DBS, DB5 and Jaguar XKR, as well as the Rolls Royce Phantom III from Goldfinger. Other makes include Bentleys, BMWs, Audis and more.

Bond has Q to tidy up his rides for him - and lets be honest, he goes through the vehicles nearly as quickly as his women. However, those of us who have invested in a classic car (or a modern yet expensive one) don't have that luxury. That's why regular vehicle inspections and tune-ups can keep these cars in tip-top shape. Who knows? Maybe they'll end up in a museum some day as well.
