Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled the stunt vehicles that will be used in the latest James Bond movie “Spectre.”
The Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender have been introduced at the palatial Thurn und Taxis in Frankfurt in the presence of Spectre cast members Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and David Bautista (Hinx).
The C-X75 supercar was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in collaboration with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering headquarters in Oxfordshire, England.
The specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the Range Rover Sport SVR also star in major action sequences shot in Austria. The Defenders were built by the JLR Special Operations division with huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres and enhanced body protection to tackle the challenging terrain of the snow-covered mountain roads where the scenes were shot.
“To have the opportunity to be a part of an iconic chase scene in a Bond movie and to drive the C-X75 supercar was like a dream come true for me. It truly is a beautiful beast of a car that will go down in movie history,” actor David Bautista said.
“I made my Bond debut in the Defender, and I have so many fond memories shooting that sequence in Turkey. It’s such a special franchise to be a part of, and I’m thrilled to be here in Frankfurt with the Jaguar Land Rover team,” added actress Naomie Harris.
Spectre will be released worldwide from October.
