If you've been to Beaulieu before, you would have seen their collection of James Bond memorabilia. A recent news article stated that Beauleu will be purchasing even more of the James Bond vehicles and gadgets for next year, making it the largest James Bond exhibition is the world.
"Exhibition of glamorous - and lethal - genuine James Bond vehicles and props. Get close to the tools of the trade of 007's secret world - genuine artefacts you will remember from many of the films - even Jaw's shirt! Plus a genuine shooting script from the making of 'Thunderball'."
Their website states some of the vehicles they already have on display. These include the Lotus Esprit and Jet Ski from The Spy Who Loved Me, Jaguar XKR from Die Another Day, Ford Cougar from On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Ford Mondeo from Casino Royale, AMC Hornet from The Man With The Golden Gun, and the BMW R1200 used in Tomorrow Never Dies. From my last visit in 2005, I remember seeing Jaw's shirt from The Spy Who Loved Me, Moneypenny's dress, the remote control for Bond's BMW is Tomorrow Never Dies and more.
We know that Beaulieu are purchasing the 1937 Rolls Royce from Goldfinger, and are probably going to display the car used in the latest film to be released, Bond 23.
One of my friends visited the exhibition a few weeks ago and took some amazing photographs. Click the image to open the gallery.
