The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu has always been highly popular with classic car lovers and enthusiasts. With a host of shows and events scheduled throughout the year, the museum is the place to be if you have a vintage car and want to connect with others who are passionate about classic automobiles.
Located in the heart of the New Forest, the museum has an exciting selection of exhibits such as the “On Screen Cars” display that features Del Boy’s yellow three wheeled Reliant Regal from classic British comedy Only Fools and Horses as well as the lime green Mini driven by Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean.
James Bond fans will know that his signature vehicle is the Aston Martin. The car first appeared in Ian Fleming’s series when Bond was given an Aston Martin by Q in the novel Goldfinger, and at this point an enduring relationship began. The DB5 is the most famous model used in the Bond movies and has been driven by every actor to play the debonair spy apart from Sir Roger Moore.
The Motor Museum featured an exhibition of James Bond vehicles in 2012 and fans of both the car and the films can enjoy an Aston Martin extravaganza this year as the museum stages a sensational day out this coming spring. Scheduled for April 10th 2016, Simply Aston Martin is sure to be a fantastic event for all enthusiasts, owners and collectors of this classic and stylish car.
The iconic DB5 will be there for all to see and all models are welcome at the show. If you choose to participate in the People’s Choice contest the winner will be selected by vote and the triumphant vehicle will be awarded the Beaulieu Simply Aston Martin trophy.
The price of tickets also includes admission to the museum, Beaulieu Abbey, Place House, World of Top Gear and more. You can enter the parkland from 9.30am onwards and the whole day promises to be a super event for you and your fellow Aston Martin lovers.
