The largest official collection of original vehicles from the 007 films, Bond in Motion features iconic cars like the gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5 and the aquatic Lotus Esprit S1, plus a wealth of other classic props and vehicles - from You Only Live Twice autogyro Little Nellie to Octopussy's crocodile submarine.
At a press launch earlier this week, Digital Spy spoke to two men who between them span the Bond franchise's 50-plus years on the big screen - BAFTA-winning stuntman and director Vic Armstrong and racing driver Ben Collins.
"My first foray into Bond would've been 1966 on You Only Live Twice - I became a ninja for the princely sum of 65 pounds a week, which was fabulous in those days," recalls Armstrong, a veteran stunt co-ordinator who has doubled for everyone from Sean Connery to Harrison Ford.
Armstrong's last foray into Bond to date was 2002's Die Another Day while Collins brings us bang up to now as a stunt driver for both 2008's Quantum of Solace and 2012's Skyfall.
"I was in touch with Gary Powell, the stunt co-ordinator, and it was amazing to get called up to work on Quantum of Solace - a dream job," says Collins, who also spent seven years as masked driver The Stig on BBC Two's Top Gear.
In his 36 years on Bond, Armstrong worked with Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan and is also firm friends with Timothy Dalton, recently reuniting with the Welsh star for new Showtime drama Penny Dreadful over four decades after he first doubled for the actor on 1971 film Mary, Queen of Scots.
"I actually broke my shoulder doubling him - I've got a metal shoulder now 'cos of that!" Armstrong laughs. "It's great looking back on Bond - we're all part of the same family which is a lovely thing."
For his part, Collins says that working with Daniel Craig - the current 007 - on the last two films was an "amazing" experience. "Daniel's a great Bond, I think. He's very physical and gets involved with a lot of the stunts. He's a good driver, very passionate about his cars - and loves driving fast!"
Bond in Motion showcases many of the original vehicles utilised in the films' incredible action sequences, with both Armstrong and Collins insisting that the secret to 007's success is grounding the fantasy in reality.
"The whole thing about Bond... it makes you say 'Wow!' but it also comes with a certain reality built into it," Armstrong says. "Every sequence is challenging because the bar is so high on a Bond and you can't just reach the bar, you have to go above the bar!"
The 67-year-old names a pair of sequences from Pierce Brosnan's second Bond outing as the two stunt scenes he's most proud to have co-ordinated. "I'm very proud of the motorcycle chase through Saigon from Tomorrow Never Dies - that's big bang for your buck.
"I'm also very proud of the BMW chase through the car park in that movie - it was fun. It had the right amount of humour - anybody can do shoot 'em up and blood and guts, but to get the humour in there at the right moment is one of the essences of Bond."
But Collins reasons that the innovative action sequences are just one reason why Bond remains as popular a half century after Connery first took to the screen in 1962's Dr No. "These movies are timeless," he suggests. "I went back and watched Dr No again the other day and it doesn't feel dated.
"Bond is a character that can survive any era and can change with the times. I believe that's why it works."
