Jaguar C-X75, Land Rover Big Foot and SVR feature in Spectre
Spectre, the 24th James Bond adventure from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment will feature a range of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles: Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR (fastest and most powerful Land Rover ever), and Defender Big Foot. All vehicles are provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.
A Jaguar C-X75 will feature in a car chase sequence through Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10. C-X75 concept vehicles to be used will be built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering facility in Oxfordshire, England.
Scenes featuring modified Land Rover Defenders and Range Rover Sport SVRs were filmed in Austria. Defender Big Foots used were the handiwork of Special Operations division to feature 37″ off-road tyres to tackle extreme terrain in addition to bespoke suspension, and enhanced body protection.
Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards looks at it as an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover, providing an opportunity to demonstrate the Special Operations team’s capabilities. This is not the only Bond film to feature Jaguar and Land Rover cars. In 2012, the Defender 110 Double Cab Pick Up was driven by field agent Eve Moneypenny at the start of Skyfall.
