The vehicles, including the white Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me which famously doubled as a submarine, will be featured at the London Film Museum, in Covent Garden.

The Bond in Motion exhibition will also feature props, miniature models and action sequence boards from all 007's films.

The exhibition will open on 21 March.
