Sunday 15th January 2012 saw the press launch of the exhibition ‘BOND IN MOTION – 50 VEHICLES. 50 YEARS.’ at the world-famous National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire.

The event was officially opened by the Hon.

Other Bond personalities on-hand included actor Colin Salmon, SFX Supervisor Chris Corbould, Second Unit Director (and world-famous stuntman) Vic Armstrong, and EON Productions’ Archivist Meg Simmonds. The exhibition is attractively displayed and Bond fans of all ages will find something at which to stare in wonderment. 2012 also marks the 40th anniversary of the National Motor Museum.
