“You forgot the first rule of media, give the people what they want!” – Bond in Tomorrow Never Dies.
The greatest action hero of all time, James Bond, has a new gallery dedicated to his famous automobiles. The gallery, located at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, Hampshire, features 50 of his original vehicles. Former Bond girls Britt Ekland, Madeline Smith, Eunice Gayson and Jenny Hanley were all on hand at the opening of the exhibit. Museum-goers were treated to such sites as Bond's 1964 Aston Martin DB5, the 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III, the water-capable Lotus Esprit and the Ford Mustang Mach 1.
If you happen to be in England be sure to check out the National Motor Museum, as it has more than 250 vehicles that document England's history in automotives. Be quick though, as the James Bond event runs only until the end of this year.
