Enjoy the JAMES BOND EXPERIENCE at Beaulieu Motor Museum, UK.

A fascinating exhibition of glamorous - and lethal - genuine James Bond vehicles and props. Get close to the tools of the trade of 007's secret world - genuine artefacts you will remember from many of the films - even Jaws shirt!

The exhibition was created in association with the Ian Fleming Foundation and currently features the following vehicles:

The Lotus Submarine Car used in the 1977 film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME
The amphibious car has twice been voted the nation's favourite on-screen vehicle and has wheel arches that turn into fins and a small periscope on the roof enabling 007 to navigate at speed underwater.

Aston Martin Volante used in the 1987 James Bond film THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS
Like its illustrious predecessor, the DB5, this latest model Aston Martin was customized with an array of hi-tech gadgetry. These include a laser beam, installed in the front hubcap, retractable skis and spiked tyres to assist the car on ice.

Jaguar XKR Roadster used in the 2002 film DIE ANOTHER DAY
Driven by Zao he chases Bond across the ice and inside the Ice Palace. This 400-horsepower Jaguar XKR comes with rear-mounted Gatling gun, front and side missile launchers and a trunk full of mortar bombs.

Ford Mondeo used in the 2006 film CASINO ROYALE
The first car new Bond actor Daniel Craig drives could possibly be the most exclusive Mondeo in the world as it was hand built at Ford of Europe's Design Studio in Cologne, Germany. The £20,000 five-door Mondeo was a range-topping 2.5-litre ST version with a snazzy one-off sports bodykit and special Tonic blue paintwork.

The world's first ever jet ski used in the 1977 film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME
This jet ski was the world's first aquatic motor-bike and could be assembled from parts carried in a large tote bag.

BMW R1200 Motorcycle used in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES
In an extended chase sequence, Bond and Wai Lin use this motorcycle to escape Elliott Carvers pursuing henchmen.

AMC Hornet used in the 1974 film THE MAN WITH GOLDEN GUN
Bond 'borrows' this car from a Bangkok showroom to chase Francisco Scaramanga. During the films most impressive stunt, Bond performs a 360-degree mid-air barrel roll in this car over a half-sunk bridge.

BOMBARDIER REV 800 MXZ ski-doo used in the 2002 film DIE ANOTHER DAY
Gustav Graves equips his henchmen at the Ice Palace with the latest in skidoo technology to hunt down Bond in his Aston Martin Vanquish.

Plus a genuine shooting script from the making of THUNDERBALL!
