The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu is hoping to set a new world record later for the longest ever line of toy cars. More than 15,000 miniature cars will be lined up nose to tail along a two-kilometre route around the museum and its grounds.
Several celebrities have donated models to the attempt, including racing driver Sir Stirling Moss.
Andy Ollerenshaw, from Beaulieu's Events team, said: "*It will be an exciting event to come and watch on the day. *
"Children who bring two or more toy cars today will get half-price admission to Beaulieu. To qualify, donated cars can be of any type designed to be played with by hand including cars, lorries, tractors and quad bikes but not large enough to sit on."**
It already houses the world's largest collection of James Bond cars. Today the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in the New Forest hosted two James Bond stars - Honor Blackman who played Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, and Richard Kiel who was Jaws in two movies.
They were the guests of honour at the Bond in Motion exhibition, which will end its run there in January. Honor Blackman spoke to Meridian and explained how even now she's asked to speak her lines from Goldfinger from 1964.
Now, it's the largest collection of Bond vehicles ever assembled under one roof. And it's proved so popular the exhibition at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu has been extended to coincide with the DVD release of Skyfall.

The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu has built a life-size eight-lane Scalextric track with Bond-style Aston Martins to race round it. Beaulieu is hosting the world's largest James Bond vehicle exhibition, with high-speed bikes and cars straight from the set of Skyfall.
The Bond in Motion exhibition features 50 of the most iconic Bond cars to celebrate 50 years of 007.
