London -The largest collection of James Bond vehicles in the world opens to the public on Tuesday in Britain featuring classics such as the Aston Martin DBS from Quantum of Solace.

From earlier Bond films, the Phantom III Rolls-Royce from Goldfinger and the Lotus Esprit S1, which takes a trip into the sea with Roger Moore at the wheel in The Spy Who Loved Me, are also among the 50 vehicles on show.

The "Bond in Motion" show at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, southeast England, marks half a century of 007 films.

Bond stars

Also featured are the vintage 1962 Rolls-Royce from A View To A Kill which was pushed into a lake by Bond's foes Zorrin and May Day, played by singer Grace Jones, with Bond still inside.

The premiere of the exhibition on Sunday was attended by Bond stars such as Britt Ekland who played Bond's bumbling accomplice Holly Goodnight in The Man With The Golden Gun.

The exhibition also showcases boats, motorbikes, sledges, jets and parachutes used in Bond films.

Sarah Wright, a spokesperson for the National Motor Museum, said: "We anticipate many people coming through our doors to come and see one of the most unique exhibitions in the world."

The exhibition will run until December 31.
