BEAULIEU, UNITED KINGDOM – Oct 1, 2012: Sir Roger Moore, who famously played 007 in the James Bond film series, visited the National Motor Museum’s BOND IN MOTION exhibition to celebrate the launch of the BOND 50 Blu-ray Collection, on sale now.

BOND 50 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment showcases all 22 classic films on Blu-ray together for the first time, with a dossier of more than 122 hours of bonus features to mark James Bond’s golden anniversary.

Sir Roger had an opportunity to reacquaint himself with some of the iconic vehicles from the seven Bond films in which he starred between 1973 and 1985, including the Lotus Esprit S1 submarine car from The Spy Who Loved Me, the Glastron Speedboat from Live and Let Die and the Acrostar BD-5J Jet from Octopussy, although he confessed his personal favourite was the Citroen 2CV from For Your Eyes Only.

The exhibition showcases 50 of the best-loved and most iconic Bond vehicles – some never publicly displayed before – in celebration of the 50th year of the James Bond films.

Most recent additions to the exhibition include two Honda motorcycles and a Land Rover Defender 110 from the latest Bond film, Skyfall, which has its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall, London on the 23rd October.
