Largest Display of James Bond Cars Ever Coming to U.K.

James Bond is more than just a movie character; he's the epitome of manhood. To be cliche, women want him and men want to be him. What man hasn't watched a James Bond flick and fantasized, even just for a moment, about being a wealthy, debonair international hero that always gets the girl. And the car.

Yes, James Bond's famous wheels rival only his catch phrases and girls in defining the timeless icon. Whether it's the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from "Goldeneye" or the 1999 BMW Z8 from "The World is Not Enough," the car was as much a main character as the actor driving it. Many of the world's hottest marquees—Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Lotus and so on—starred in a James Bond flick at one point or another, and now the largest collection of those cars is coming to a U.K. museum exhibition.

The U.K.'s National Motor Museum will make a fitting destination for the largest collection of Bond vehicles ever displayed. The year-long exhibition will begin next January and run through December 2012. It's designed to simultaneously celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise and the 40th anniversary of the museum.

Though not every Bond vehicle will make the exhibit, many famous coupes will be on hand, including the aforementioned Aston Martin DB5, the 1937 Phantom III Rolls Royce from "Goldfinger," and the weaponized 2002 Jaguar XKR from "Die Another Day." A total of 50 Bond vehicles will make the trip to the museum.

Whether you're a bond fan, a car fan or both, this is sure to be an exciting feature.

In addition to the Bond exhibit, the National Motor Museum has some 250 other cars that tell the story of British motoring.
