James Bond vehicles safely transported
DHL has transported eight original film vehicles from Norwich, Norfolk in UK across the Atlantic to Los Angeles, USA. The cars of James Bond films since Casino Royale in 2006 will be the main attraction of an exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
In total, DHL transported five Aston Martins, two BMWs and one Lotus Esprit S1, known to fans as Wet Nellie from The Spy Who Loved Me.
DHL also transported Bond's iconic silver-grey Aston Martin DB5, as well as the Aston Martin DBS. The vehicles were first brought to Houston in Texas (USA) by sea freight and then travelled via road to Los Angeles. To ensure that the vehicles arrived safely, DHL used special enclosed car carriers with air suspension. (ben)
