Continuing Jaguar Land Rover’s successful involvement with the Bond franchise, Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot to feature in new James Bond movie, SPECTRE

OUR favourite spy, James Bond, will be powering back on to the silver screen in three British built villain-chasing motors.

Jaguar Land Rover has announced its line-up of vehicles set to feature in SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond adventure.
These will include the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Defender Big Foot, which have been provided by Jaguar Land Rover’s version of Q’s geekery department, Special Operations.

The Jaguar C-X75 will feature in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10

The Jaguar C-X75 will feature in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10. The C-X75 vehicles used in filming have been built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering facility in Oxfordshire, England.

Scenes including the heavily modified versions of Land Rover Defender and Range Rover Sport SVR have already been filmed in Austria. The Range Rover Sport SVR is the fastest and most powerful Land Rover ever while the highly off-road capable Big Foots were constructed by Special Operations with huge 37-inch diameter tyres to tackle extreme terrain. They also feature bespoke suspension systems and enhanced body protection.

Managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, said: “This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team.’’

Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have been involved in a succession of Bond films. Most recently, in 2012, the rugged Defender 110 Double Cab Pick Up was driven by field agent Eve Moneypenny in the opening sequence to SKYFALL.
