007 fans need to wait till the end of the year as the twenty-fourth James Bond movie, Spectre is not rolling out until November. While Daniel Craig plays the role of Mr. Bond for the fourth time, the makers of the cars used in the movie have announced the four-wheel cast too. While the car in the lead role is Aston Martin DB10, the rest of the Spectre fleet includes a trio of cars from Jaguar Land Rover.
The British auto maker announced that the non-production concept Jaguar C-X75, the the fastest and the most powerful Land Rover ever Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot with 37-inch diameter off-road tires will feature in the new James Bond movie. While the C-X75 concept will form part of spectacular chase scene alongside the Aston Martin DB10 in Rome, the the heavily modified Land Rover Defenders and Range Rover Sport SVR will be seen burning the tar in Austria.
Jaguar Land Rover and James Bond collaborating isn’t new as Jaguar XKR was seen in Goldgfinger, M was seen chauffeured in XJ in Skyfall, Moneypenny drove a Defender 110 Double Cab truck in the opening sequence of Skyfall, Elliot Carver chased Bond in a Range Rover P38A in Tomorrow Never Dies and Bond had stolen a Range Rover Sport in Casino Royale. The Word is Not Enough as the list can go on!
John Edwards, MD Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, states, “This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team.”
