50 Years of Bond Cars, The Great Gatsby, Ashton Martin, Lamborghini, Ferrari & More @ Luxury Supercar Weekend 2012
Luxury Supercar Weekend 2012, VanDusen Gardens in Vancouver BC, Canada. At the 50 Years of 007 James Bond Cars exhibit, you would find an Aston Martin, Bentley, Daimler-Chrysler, BMW, Mustang, Triumph, Thunderbird etc. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Not necessary what 007, the James Bond characters had driven, be they Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, or Timothy Dalton, Daniel Craig. So long as the vehicle appeared in a Bond movie, it qualified for inclusion.
The Bond car had always been conceived as an Ashton Martin. But since so many car-makers bribed the movie’s producers with product placement deals, the audience saw a whole spectrum of different makes and models appearing in that movie franchise. Dr. No, The Spy Who loved Me, You Only Lived Twice, Casino Royale etc. Can you spot which car is in which movie?
There are also vintage autos at The Great Gatsby exhibit. Million dollar cars, literally. Each. Owners stood by their prized possessions in 1920s attires seemingly eager to relive that opulent Big Swing Jazz era. F. Scott Fitzgerald would have been proud.
Not to be left out were a slew of classic and most up-to-date models from such venerable sports car-makers as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Louts, Maserati and more.
