As it turns out, we don’t need Daniel Craig, nor do we need a production crew in order to get some really good footage of the Jaguar C-X75.
In order to build the C-X75, JLR SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) had to partner with Williams only to then give it to Dave Bautista’s character on-screen in order to chase down Bond through Rome.
However, the movie, just like the test footage featuring Felipe Massa, didn’t really focus on the car’s power unit, which sounds completely bonkers, even when idling or slowly crawling along in 1st gear.
According to the car spotter, this C-X75 even had all the special features inside that they used in the movie Spectre. But if you’re just interested in knowing why it sounds like a muscle car’s wet dream, it’s because of its 542 BHP 5.0-liter supercharged V8.
The location where the car was spotted was Top Marques Monaco, where Jaguar Land Rover also brought a specially modified Defender and their fastest, post powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR.
What do you think, does it make your top 3 of all-time best-sounding V8s?
