The largest collection of James Bond memorabilia has gone on show in an exhibition in London’s Covent garden.
In over 50 years of saving the world, Bond – James Bond has driven what have become some of the most iconic movie motors.
The Aston Martin DB5 that led to Goldlfinger’s downfall and captured the imagination of a generation of pistonheads is on view. What is it about 007 and Aston Martins – as in the DBS from Quantum of Solace?
“Well I think it’s a character in the film, people ask when they hear there’s gonna be a new Bond film, they say – ‘who’s the girl and what’s the car?’ I think Bond depends on the cars for his survival and it’s part of the drama of the film,” explained Bond producer Michael G. Wilson.
It was a Lotus packed with gadgets thanks to Q which was central to the film “The Spy Who Loved Me.”
But the Aston Martin is set to return – and a model which has never been seen before.
Filming on the next of the spy movies will start later this year with the actor Daniel Craig in the lead – or will the car be the star?
