Enjoy a drive through the beautiful New Forest before arriving at Beaulieu to display your vehicle in the attraction's picturesque parkland. Let your car become the star, and take the opportunity to view the range of vehicles on display. Simply Bond is open to any model of vehicle which has featured in a James Bond film, from a glamorous Aston Martin, Lotus or Rolls-Royce, to a more everyday BMW, or Renault. To find out if your vehicle has appeared in a Bond film, visit www.beaulieuevents.co.uk and click on Simply Bond, where you will find a full list of eligible vehicles.
Beaulieu visitors can vote for their favourite vehicle on display, with the winner receiving a People's Choice special edition Beaulieu Trophy, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Beaulieu attraction. The winning vehicle will lead a cavalcade of 20 vehicles selected from all Simply Bond participants through the grounds of the National Motor Museum.
Visitors can also see "Bond in Motion" on show in the National Motor Museum until December 2012. The largest exhibition of Bond vehicles staged anywhere in the world, it showcases 50 genuine vehicles from the Bond films as part of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films. Some of the best-loved and most iconic vehicles are on display, including 'Wet Nellie' the Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me and the Casino Royale Aston Martin DBS stunt car which rolled seven and three quarter turns to claim a Guinness World Record. View film clips and behind-the-scenes footage from some of the most memorable vehicle stunts in the film series.
