BOND IN MOTION exhibition enjoying successBack

If you’re a James Bond fan then the BOND IN MOTION exhibition held in Beaulieu will be just up your street.

Since the exhibition opened in mid-January, Beaulieu has reported that it has been highly successful, attracting a huge amount of interest from the press and the public on an international scale.

The James Bond exhibition has been put together to celebrate the 50th year of James Bond movies and it is the largest of its kind staged anywhere in the world. It features a wide range of vehicles which have made an appearance in Bond films throughout the years.

The exhibition includes a multitude of different vehicles to include cars, boats, motorbikes, sleds, jets and much more. One of the main attractions at the show is the 2006 Aston Martin DBS which enjoyed a starring role in the filming of Casino Royale. It stands next to a severely damaged Aston Martin DBS stunt car which undertook a dramatic roll within the film where viewers saw the car roll seven and three quarter turns, setting a new Guinness World Record.

The BMW 750iL is another popular and memorable vehicle on display at the BOND IN MOTION exhibition. Featured in the car park chase scene in Tomorrow Never Dies, the BMW 750L was driven by Pierce Brosnan’s Bond who was filmed driving remotely from the back seat of the car, using his mobile phone to control the vehicle.

An additional highlight of the exhibition is that visitors are invited to watch exclusive behind-the-scenes footage which show just how some of the most memorable and dangerous stunts in the films were created. There are also interviews on show featuring stunt co-ordinators and members of the stunt teams.

Beaulieu’s sister attraction, Buckler’s Hard Maritime Museum, is also featuring the original boat used by Daniel Craig when he played Bond in the most recent film entitled Quantum of Solace. It features in a dramatic water chase scene where the boat appears to be driven by Bond but is actually being steered by a concealed stunt driver.

Beaulieu’s Commercial Director, Stephen Munn said: “There has been an extraordinary amount of interest in this exhibition, from the general public and press alike, which is incredibly exciting. We have seen a dramatic rise in website hits and an increase of over 100% in our visitor numbers since the opening, at what is normally a quiet time of year. We hope the exhibition will continue to have a significant impact on our visitor numbers throughout the rest of the year.”

The BOND IN MOTION is set to run up until December 2012 and can be seen as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction. For further information on the exhibition visit www.bondinmotion.co.uk
