Bond Cars at the Dezer Museum

If you are really into the James Bond aura and want to see what it's really like to stand by and touch some of the most iconic cars in history, consider visiting The Miami Auto Museum at The Dezer Collection in Miami. Or, if you are in England or the rest of Europe, there is a temporary exhibit going on now in London where you can experience some of this good stuff. "Bond in Motion" is at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden from 21 March, running throughout 2014.

The Dezer has one of the largest collections of James Bond props and vehicles in the world. The Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection’s James Bond Exhibit includes a fascinating array of automobiles, motorcycles, submarines, airplanes, helicopters, boats, and snowmobiles. In other words, if it moves in a Bond film and doesn't drink martinis shaken not stirred, it's probably found its way into the Dezer.

The Jaguar XKR's ordnance includes rockets in the door. The XKR also has ramming spikes for getting up close and personal when pursuing Bond.
The collection is home to the golden gun itself, a T-55 Soviet tank featured in the 1995 Bond film Goldeneye, a BD-5 Microjet, and six Aston Martins, among many other props.  The James Bond Exhibit will also showcase vehicles from The Ian Fleming Foundation.
