Another cat is finally out of the bag... The Petersen Automotive Museum i Los Angeles will host a new official exhibit ahead of the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise next year through a highly diverse selection of iconic screen-used vehicles.

Opening September 25, 2021, in the Mullin Grand Salon gallery, Bond in Motion will be the largest official Bond vehicle display to date in the U.S., and will feature more than 30 cars, motorcycles, boats, submarines, helicopters and even scale filming models of aircraft from an array of both classic and contemporary Bond films.

Highlighted automobiles include the 1977 Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), 1985 Aston Martin V8 from The Living Daylights (1987), 1999 BMW Z8 from The World Is Not Enough (1999), and the 2019 Aston Martin DB10 from SPECTRE (2015).

“James Bond is an international pop culture icon and the vehicles he drives are an integral part of his character,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The Petersen is excited to showcase so many of the series’ most well-known vehicles. We are sure that there will be something to satisfy every generation of Bond fan.”


Bond in Motion was created as a collaboration between EON Productions and The Ian Fleming® Foundation, with support from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), to explore how the vehicles featured in the Bond movies contributed to each movie’s popularity and legacy. Transportation of eight automobiles from the United Kingdom was generously donated by DHL, who oversaw logistics for the last five Bond films and is the official partner of No Time To Die (2021).
