From the ‘Wet Nellie’ Lotus Esprit S1 seen in The Spy Who Loved Me, to the Rolls-Royce Phantom III used in Goldfinger, and the Aston Martin DB5 that Pierce Brosnan adeptly manoeuvred in GoldenEye you can see them up-close at this family-friendly exhibition. To get you in the mood, we’ve found some pictures of those classic Bond motor moments.
