If you saw Hammond’s tribute to the cars of James Bond last year, you’ll be familiar with the exhibition’s lineup. It’s called ‘Bond in Motion’, and features an incredible array of cars actually used in the James Bond canon; things like the decapitated Renault 11 TXE from A View To A Kill, and the little Tuk-Tuk from Octopussy.
But by the time Shirley Bassey was belting out Goldfinger in the 60s, Connery was in a DB5. So, sitting pride of place in the museum is BMT 214A; one of the original DB5s used in the films, and the most endearing, popular and recognisable of all the James Bond cars. It’s quite a thing, too.
