007 Elements Bond Museum In Austria

Interacting with jaguars at the top of glacial peaks has not traditionally been a tourist attraction for those venturing to Western Austria. But the mountainous, ski-happy region has a new point of interest, thanks to the recently installed James Bond Museum in Sölden, where you can do just that.

At 3,050 meters above sea level, the museum offers a stunning view–and if the altitude hasn’t already, the cars inside are guaranteed to take your breath away. Aston Martins aren’t the only vehicles that have been driven by the likes of Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and bond-incumbent Daniel Craig. Jaguar Land Rover has vehicles featured in 9 of the 26 Bond movies. The museum–officially titled “007 Elements”–will have a bevy of JLRs from Bond films on display. Among the cars on exhibition are the Land Rover Defender, the Range Rover Sport SVR, and the electric Jaguar I-Pace–all of which appeared in 2015’s Spectre. A wireframe model of the $1.5 million Jaguar C-X75 concept that ferried Bond through Rome in Spectre’s high-speed chase scene will also be on site. Gallery rooms were designed by Neal Callow, the art director for the last three Bond films, making “007 Elements” a fully immersive experience. Though you might start feeling like a secret agent, don’t try to speed off with one of these thunderballs. Driving these cars requires a different kind of license.
