The Museum offers a colourful insight into the British motor industry – from the popular ‘Time Road’ to the ‘Under the Skin’ interactive zone, everyone will find displays and exhibits to surprise and enlighten.
From its earliest days the British motor industry has been a vital part of the economy and the lives of people living in the Midlands and it is still a hub for automotive creativity today. The Museum tells the story of the birth, decline and rebirth of the motor industry and the cars it produced, as well as celebrating the skills and creativity of the people who designed and built them. An example is The Land Rover display, dominated by a man-made ‘mountain’ designed to show off the Land Rover’s off road capabilities. Cars on display include a 1968 series SAS ‘Pink Panther’, an amazing tracked Land Rover ‘Cuthbertson’, the Range Stormer concept car and the very first Range Rover off the production line.
The Film & TV cars zone includes – the fabulously pink FAB 1 from Thunderbirds, the Land Rover Defender used in the opening sequence of the James Bond Skyfall movie, the Tomb Raider Defender, the Land Rover ‘Judge Dredd’ City Cab and a replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future 2. The Record Breakers display features four of the world’s fastest MGs – along with some fabulous images and film of them in action.
