Jaguar and Land Rover to join James Bond in Spectre movie

The Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot are to all feature in the new James Bond movie, Spectre.

The C-X75 concept cars will be part of a spectacular chase scene in Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10.

The Jaguars have been built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering facility in Oxfordshire. The RR Sport SVR is the fastest and the most powerful Land Rover ever. The highly capable Big Foots were constructed by the Special Operations division with huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres to tackle the extreme terrain. They also feature bespoke suspension and enhanced body protection.

Scenes including the heavily modified Land Rover Defenders and Range Rover Sport SVR have already been filmed in Austria.

Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have appeared 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.
