Global Unveiling of Jaguar Land Rover Bond Cars

Jaguar Land Rover recently celebrated their vehicles appearing in the new Bond adventure, SPECTRE. The Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and the iconic Land Rover Defender,  were the show stoppers at the palatial Thurn und Taxis in Frankfurt.
SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond film, sees the Jaguar C-X75 drive through the moonlit streets of Rome in one of the movie’s most iconic high speed chase scene
The C-X75 supercar, is by far the most advanced Jaguar ever created, the brainchild of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) collaboration with their development partner Williams Advanced Engineering, headquartered in Oxfordshire, England.  
According to Jaguar, SVO was created in June 2014 to focus on meeting the increasing expectations of discerning and enthusiastic Jaguar and Land Rover customers. The SVO wing works on the development of high performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions and limited run collector editions.
Along with the fastest and most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR, Specially Modified Land Rover Defenders constructed by the JLR Special Operations division, having huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres and enhanced body protection to tackle the challenging terrain of the snow-covered mountain roads, were also used for filming major action sequences shot in Austria.  
Actor David Bautista said, “To have the opportunity to be a part of an iconic chase scene in a Bond movie and to drive the C-X75 supercar was like a dream come true for me. It truly is a beautiful beast of a car that will go down in movie history.”

Naomie Harris, who will reprise the role of Moneypenny in SPECTRE said: “I made my Bond debut in the Defender, and I have so many fond memories shooting that sequence in Istanbul. It’s such a special franchise to be a part of, and I’m thrilled to be here in Frankfurt with the Jaguar Land Rover team”.

Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, said: "For Jaguar Land Rover to once again be a part of the iconic vehicle line ups in one of the most celebrated film franchises in the world represents a proud moment for us.  It’s an incredible opportunity to showcase production and concept cars alike and we look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future.”
Fans around the world will be treated to a host of exclusive SPECTRE content on Jaguar and Land Rover’s social channels and brand new websites, including special access to unseen footage and interviews with the design, SVO and stunt teams as well as a stunning 360 dynamic walk-around of the Jaguar C-X75.

Jaguar and Land Rover will be releasing exclusive and interactive behind-the-scenes SPECTRE content on their websites as part of their launch.
