The 24th edition of the James Bond series SPECTRE is directed by Sam Mendes, written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. And Jaguar Land Rover has announced its line-up of vehicles set to feature in this much anticipated thriller.
The Jaguar C-X75s, Range Rover Sport SVRs and Defender Big Foots have been provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations for the movie. While the Jaguar C-X75 will feature in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10, the heavily modified Land Rover Defenders & Range Rover Sport SVR have already been filmed in Austria. The highly capable Big Foots with huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres will tackle extreme terrain and feature bespoke suspension 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.
