Beaulieu prepares for James Bond exhibition

Motoring enthusiasts are being offered the chance to view some never-before-seen exhibits at a forthcoming event.

Next month will see the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu host the James Bond vehicle exhibition.

The event, which opens on January 17th 2012, will showcase no less than 50 cars from the movie series.

It is the largest collection of James Bond cars to be assembled in one place and will be used to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the launch of the movie franchise.

"Among the vehicles now arriving for the exhibition are a number that have never before been seen in public," organisers of the event explained.

"These include the Ford Mustang Mach 1 from Diamonds Are Forever, villain Zukovsky's Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II from The World Is Not Enough and the vintage 1962 Rolls Royce, pushed into a lake by May Day and Zorin with Bond still inside, in A View to a Kill."

The news comes as cinemagoers gear up to see Daniel Craig step into the 007 role for a third time in 2012.
