Featuring sensor-activated dummy machine guns and a revolving number plate, the battle-scarred Silver Birch Aston was one of eight stunt cars provided by Aston Martin for the filming, with a further two pristine vehicles used for close shots. It was unveiled at the opening by Lord Montagu and the special effects supervisor on No Time To Die and 14 other Bond films, Chris Corbould.
Other movie cars on display included the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, driven in the fi lm by new agent Nomi, the film’s Aston Martin V8 and the Chevy Bel Air. These are joined by Bond’s Land Rover Series III and the Land Rover Defender 110, while a Triumph Scrambler motorcycle and Royal Alloy Scooter will be crowdpleasers for fans of two-wheelers.
Following in the footsteps of Beaulieu’s popular Bond In Motion exhibition, which opened ten years ago showing 50 original vehicles from 50 years of Bond, the new exhibition will give also the public the chance to see many of the gadgets and costumes used in new movie, with a backdrop of large screens showing the action scenes. The submersible glider designed by Tim Browning for the movie, named ‘Stealthy Bird’ by Q, is also perched in a new home overlooking the exhibition.
Bond in Motion – No Time to Die will run until November 2022. For tickets and details see www.beaulieu.co.uk.
