The Mountaintop Lair From ‘Spectre’ Is Now a Bond Museum
An ode to 007’s cars and gadgets opens in the Austrian Alps
It might not have been a great movie. But Spectre, like all James Bond films, certainly wowed with its selection of cars and gadgets.
Which is reason enough to inspire 007 Elements, a new cinematic installation inside the summit of the Gaislachkogl Mountain in Sölden, Austria. The soon-to-open exhibit allows you to immerse yourself in the world of the British superspy, primarily through his vehicles.
Located 3,050 meters above sea level in the mountaintop glass building from Spectre, 007 Elements showcases technology and cars (such as the Land Rover Defender and Range Rover Sport SVR) from Bond films old and new.
The two-story building housing the exhibit is a collaboration between Cable Car Company Sölden, architect Johann Obermoser and Neal Callow, the Art Director on Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, all of whom were “inspired by the visionary work of James Bond Production Designer, Sir Ken Adam.”
007 Elements opens in the summer.
