“Classic Cars Live!” (the renamed London Classic Motor Show) will be at Alexandra Palace, London, on March 20 and 21 and will be bringing a few of Bond’s cars with them. For More information about the show please visit classiccarslive.com.
The handfull of Bond’s cars that will be “attending” the show include:
- Sean Connery’s Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger: complete with bullet-proof screen, revolving number plates, oil and water sprays, ejector seat and front-mounted machine guns. Although the original Goldfinger car has long since disappeared, this replica (owned by the ‘Cars of the Stars’ museum in Keswick) has had its own screen career in somewhat lesser films.
- Roger Moore’s Lotus Esprit Turbo used in For Your Eyes Only.
- Pierce Brosnan’s Aston Martin Vanquish from Die Another Day.
- Bond Baddie Zao’s Jaguar XK8 Convertible from Die Another Day.
