JAMES Bond fans will have no time to waste as they motor down to Hampshire in October to get up close to the iconic cars, gadgets and costumes from the new 007 movie.
Already one of the South of England’s top family days out, Beaulieu will now be home to Bond in Motion – No Time To Die, an exclusive chance to see memorabilia from the 25th Bond blockbuster.
Set to be unveiled in the National Motor Museum on October 16, the new exhibition follows Beaulieu‘s acclaimed Bond In Motion, which opened ten years ago, with 50 original vehicles from 50 years of Bond.
In a world exclusive, among exhibition highlights will be the first opportunity for the public to see the folding-wing glider from the film, which will be suspended above Bond’s iconic silver birch Aston Martin DB5, complete with new LED number plate and machine guns.
Also on display will be the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, driven in the film by new agent Nomi, the No Time To Die Aston Martin V8 – which was last seen in The Living Daylights (1987) – and the Chevy Bel Air.
Fans of four-wheel drives will enjoy Bond’s Land Rover Series III and the Land Rover Defender 110, while a Triumph Scrambler motorcycle and Royal Alloy Scooter will be crowd-pleasers for fans of two-wheelers.
But no Bond exhibition would be complete without gadgets.
Visitors to Beaulieu will get a first look at new gadgets from Q Branch, including Bond’s Q-enhanced Omega Seamaster Diver 300M watch, alongside technical plans for vehicle designs and DB5 weapons.
Backdrop screens will also show action clips from the movie, and a range of Bond merchandise will also be on display in the exhibition and available to buy in the Beaulieu gift shop.
Bond in Motion – No Time To Die joins other Beaulieu attractions, including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Little Beaulieu, Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and the grounds and gardens.
Entry to the new exhibition is included in normal admission (£23 adult, £12 child). For full details, and tickets, visit www.beaulieu.co.uk. For general tourist information about Hampshire, see www.visit-hampshire.co.uk
