Bond In Motion moves to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles

07 September, 2021

The Bond In Motion exhibition will move to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Bond In Motion now celebrates the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise through a highly diverse selection of iconic screen-used vehicles.

Aston Martin DB10

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.

Highlights 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.

Bond In Motion has been exhibited in The London Film Museum from March 2014 until January 2021 (read here about the launch event in 2014).

Transportation of eight automobiles from the United Kingdom was generously donated and managed by DHL, who oversaw logistics for the last five Bond films and is the official partner of No Time To Die (2021).

Prior to the public opening, the Petersen will host an opening reception on the evening of September 23 with live entertainment, and gourmet appetizers and cocktails.

The exhibit will replace the Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit in the Mullin Grand Salon gallery on the first floor of the museum and will run through October 30, 2022. It will also provide a space for screenings, panel discussions and lectures related to the Bond franchise.
