Ron Weasley visits Beaulieu

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint paid a surprise visit to the National Motor Museum in the New Forest.

Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the movie franchise, was at Beaulieu to see the ‘Flying’ Ford Anglia featured in the second film, ”Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’.

The car is on display in the National Motor Museum during 2011.

In the film, Harry Potter’s school friend Ron Weasley acquired the car after it was stolen.

The Anglia was a standard car until Ron’s Dad, Arthur Weasley enchanted it, making it able to fly, become invisible to Muggles and to carry his entire family despite its modest size.

In the real world, Rupert has added the Anglia to his collection of quirky cars, along with an Ice Cream Van, a modified VW Camper and a BMW Isetta bubble car.

The ‘Flying’ Ford Anglia can be seen as part of a visit to the National Motor Museum, including World of Top Gear and the James Bond Experience.
