Vehicle that featured prominently in a Bond opening scene, the Q Boat took a wild ride through the Thames in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough.
Quantum of Solace may not be remembered among the best Bond movies, but its opening sequence featured one of the most visceral and engaging car chases in the long-running series. Aston Martin’s DBS was the unfortunate victim of that violent pursuit.
Back in 1965, at the time of Thunderball‘s release, we all thought we would be travelling via personal jet packs in the future. Sean Connery enflamed that fantasy by using one as means of escape in the film’s opening sequence.
James Bond’s passport. When he is not jetpacking.
The Spy Who Loved Me debuted the iconic amphibious Lotus. Elon Musk spent nearly $1 million to acquire the sub in October 2013.
The exhibition includes a selection of motorbikes from the times when 007 didn’t have access to a car. Pictured here are bikes from Skyfall, Tomorrow Never Dies, and GoldenEye.
A 1/3 scale model of a military helicopter that was featured in Skyfall. AgustaWestland’s helicopters are built in southwest England, and the company has expressed its pride in supporting the “quintessentially British” James Bond franchise.
About as silly as the movie in which it starred, this single-occupancy submarine made an appearance in 1983’s Octopussy.
Starring in 1987’s The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton, the V8 Volante was “winterized” as part of the film’s storyline and included a self-destruct button that Bond had to deploy in the course of an escape. Also pictured is the cello case that served as the spy’s subsequent mode of transport down a snow-covered mountainside.
Bond’s gyrocopter in 1967’s You Only Live Twice. The Little Nellie was flown by its creator, British airman Ken Wallis, who stood in for Sean Connery’s Bond.
Blofeld’s Bathosub in Diamonds Are Forever is another example of the 20th century’s expectation that we’d develop equivalents of the car for travelling via water and air.
The man that’s set to provide the special effects in Star Wars Episode VII, Chris Corbould, is a Bond film veteran. He has served as FX coordinator, supervisor, or director on multiple 007 projects.
The original and most iconic of all Bond cars, Aston Martin’s DB5 made its debut in the third 007 film, 1964’s Goldfinger. It has since reprised the role of Bond’s favorite ride several times, including in the latest release, Skyfall. 2006’s Casino Royale shows Bond winning the DB5 in a game of high-stakes poker, establishing his credentials as a savvy card player. The DB in the car’s name represents the initials of longtime Aston Martin owner David Brown, under whose stewardship the brand rose to prominence.
If there’s one recurring theme to all of Bond’s cars, it’s the inclusion of violent extras like rockets, machine guns, and tire spikes.
Die Another Day was rich on snow and ice, so inevitably there had to be a custom-designed snowmobile for James Bond to ride around on.
