The largest official collection of Bond cars and vehicles to be displayed in London has been launched at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden.

The Bond In Motion exhibition continues the celebration of a 50-year-old franchise which is the longest running in film history, and which first saw Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman bringing Ian Fleming's characters to life in 1962.

Since then, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have overseen the creation of 22 films, and Broccoli said work has already begin on the secret agent's next adventure.

"We are at early stages, we start filming at the end of the year and the next film will come out at the end of 2015, so it's an exciting time for us."

"We've been working on the script with John Logan, Sam Mendes and Daniel [Craig], and it's evolving. This is the exciting bit when we get to get all the creative forces together and start developing the action sequences, and the sky's the limit at the moment," she said.

The display brings together the Aston Martin DB5, the Lotus Espirit S1 and the Rolls Royce which featured in the 1964 film Goldfinger as well as the scale model of Augusta Westland's helicopter, which was used in the 2012 hit movie Skyfall.

Skyfall is the highest grossing film of the series so far and Michael G Wilson said he feels no pressure going into the next project.

"It's exciting when you come off the back of a successful film and obviously the public agrees with you. We are going to try to continue on that vein and keep doing something right again."

The exhibition will be open to the public from Friday March 21 2012. Tickets are available from
