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.

The exhibition will feature vehicles from all 25 James Bond films at The Palais de Expositions at Heysel, Brussels Expo (Palais 1) and runs until May 14, 2023.

Vehicles include the Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5, Nomi’s No Time To Die Superleggera DBS, the Q Boat from The World Is Not Enough and Little Nellie from You Only Live Twice.

The cars, helicopters, motorbikes, planes and submarines will be surrounded by props, models, set photos and gadgets from the Bond Archive.

This is the fourth Bond In Motion exhibition, following shows in London (read here about the launch event in 2014), at the recent Petersen Automotive Museum, LA and Bond In Motion – No Time To Die at the National Motor Museum, UK. Simultaneously a Bond In Motion exhibition will open in the Saratoga Museum in New York (read more).

May be Daniel Craig is the last Bond. As us espionage illuminati know too well, Ian Fleming isn’t around to write another “Trout Memo” or choose the next 007! He has not only eulogised and promoted the "espionage industry" but he has also spread so much disinformation about that industry that even MI6 would have been proud of the dissemination of so much fake news. Maybe the Bond legacy is finally coming to an end notwithstanding the recent publication of Anthony Horowitz’s With a Mind to Kill, particularly after Daniel Craig's au revoir in No Time To Die. We think the anti-Bond era is now being firmly established in literature and on the screen. Raw noir anti-Bond espionage masterpieces are on the ascent. Len Deighton's classic The Ipcress File has been rejuvenated by John Hodge with Joe Cole aspiring to take on Michael Caine and of course there are plenty of Slow Horses ridden by Bad Actors too. Then there's Edward Burlington in The Burlington Files series by Bill Fairclough, a real spy (MI6 codename JJ) who disavowed Ian Fleming for his epic disservice to the espionage fraternity. After all, Fleming single-handedly transformed MI6 into a mythical quasi-religious cult that spawned a knight in shining armour numbered 007 who could regularly save the planet from spinning out of orbit. Last but not least, the final nail in wee Jimmy Bond's coffin has been hammered in by Jackson Lamb. Mick Herron's anti-Bond sentiments combine lethally with the sardonic humour of the Slough House series to unreservedly mock not just Bond but also British Intelligence which has lived too long off the overly ripe fruits Fleming left to rot! Time for a fresh start based on a real spy so best read Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series by ex-spook Bill Fairclough.
