NOT JUST PRETTY FACES: A number of exotic cars were on hand recently to make sick children's lives a little brighter.

Cannonball 2000 participants recently did their bit for charity by taking sick children and their families out in a variety of exotic cars, while James Bond’s stunt driver talked stunts.

And a lot of people got to see some very special cars.

The cars were recently gathered at a 'James Bond – Bond in Motion' event at Britain’s Beaulieu Motor Museum where the Cannonball 2000 entrants participated in Dreams Come True charity event ahead of the race starting September 5, 2012.

SUPERCARS AND STUNTS


Cars in attendance included an Aston Martin DB9, Jaguar XK8, Maserati Gran Cabrio and California and 458 Italia models from Ferrari. James Bond stunt driver Ray Dehaan was on the sidelines to talk to the children about film stunts.

'Dreams Come True' is the chosen charity of Cannonball 2000 and Beaulieu Motor Museum. The charity helps children aged two to 21 who have a life-threatening and long-term illness by providing each child with an unforgettable experience creating wonderful memories to share with loved ones and friends.

The inaugural Cannonball 2000 is a 3200km road trip over five days that starts in London and goes via Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Milan to the finish in Paris. Part of Cannonball 2000’s fees go directly to 'Dreams Come True'.
