2013 RACV Motorclassica - Bond vehicles

RACV Motorclassica will this year host two key vehicles from the ‘Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style’ exhibition - Bond's 1969 Aston Martin DBS Vantage from On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and his 1997 BMW R1200C motorcycle from Tomorrow never dies.

Motorclassica will be held on 25-27 October at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

'Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style' is an exhibition showcasing the design and style of the James Bond franchise and opens on 1 November at Melbourne Museum. Melbourne is the only Australian stop for this major international touring exhibition.

Motorclassica Event Director, Paul Mathers, said, "We are delighted to partner up with Melbourne Museum to bring this preview to Motorclassica...it will give our show goers a taste of what will be an important and no doubt popular exhibition."

"And to have two such iconic vehicles on show, vehicles that everyone remembers from the films, is fantastic. I know they will be very popular."

"Bond’s Aston Martin DBS Vantage also has a special connection with Australia – it was driven by the only Australian actor to play James Bond, George Lazenby, in his only appearance as Bond", he added.

Along with the Bond displays at Motorclassica, there will be more than 350 cars and motorcycles on display in and around the building, including the adjacent ‘Club Sandwich’ club displays.
