The Aston Martin has long been a crowd favorite in the 007 films in the past, but for Bond’s next adventure, “Spectre,” Jaguar Land Rover will be supplying a Range Rover Sport SVR, Jaguar C-X75 and Defender Big Foot for his escapades in the 24th installment of the infamous franchise.
The C-X75 will be featured in a stunning car chase scene through Rome with the gorgeous Aston Martin DB10. The movie concepts, originally constructed for the 2010 Paris auto show, were built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering in Oxfordshire, England and are sure to be an eye pleaser on the big screen.
Debuting last August, The SVR is Land Rover’s fastest and most powerful Rover ever produced and puts out 550 horsepower from its 5.0-liter V8 while reaching a top speed of 162 mph. This fully enhanced Range Rover is merely the first wave amongst a small tsunami of new high performance Land Rovers that will appear over the next few years.
The Defender Big Foot was built around 2010 as a supplemental vehicle to add excitement to the brand’s auto show stands. The car was built by Land Rover Special Vehicles and features 37-inch rims with 395/70 Mickey Thompson tires, a selection of diesel engines and a four-range transmission case.
Jaguar and Land Rover are back in the Bond films after a small break; most recently a Defender 110 Double Cab Pickup was driven by Moneypenny in the opening sequence of “Skyfall.”
“Spectre” is scheduled to hit theaters on November 6th and features Daniel Craig once again as James Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M and Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny.
