Bond in Motion: Original film cars driven by female characters from James Bond film series on display at Museum

Bond in Motion at the London Film Museum has installed a new display of original film cars driven by female characters starring alongside 007 in the James Bond franchise. Also included are previously unseen costumes, props and storyboards.

The Bond in Motion exhibition has over 100 individual items on display including the Aston Martin DB5 from GoldenEye, the ‘Wet Nellie’ Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me, the Rolls-Royce Phantom III from Goldfinger, and the ‘Little Nellie’ Wallis WA-116 Agile Autogyro from You Only Live Twice.

Movie cars added to the permanent exhibition include:

  • Land Rover Defender Double Cab driven by Eve (Naomie Harris) in Skyfall
  • Ford Ka driven by Camille (Olga Kurylenko) in Quantum of Solace
  • Ford Thunderbird driven by Jinx (Halle Berry) in Die Another Day

Tilly Masterson (Tania Mallet) was the very first Bond actress to drive a car in the film Goldfinger, and the Mustang she drove was a preproduction car acquired from Ford especially for the film. An original production memo from January 1964 requesting driving lessons for Tania Mallet forms part of the new display.
