Frankfurt Motor Show 2015: JLR reveals James Bond Spectre cars

Published 16 September 2015

On the evening of 15th September, Jaguar Land Rover revealed its vehicles that will be appearing in the new Bond adventure, SPECTRE.

Accompanied by stars David Bautista who plays the villain Hinx and Naomie Harris who plays Moneypenny, the care are a highly modified Land Rover Defender, the Jaguar C-X75 and a very special Range Rover Sport SVR.

Cars, including the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and the iconic Land Rover Defender, stole the show as they were unveiled in public for the first time at the palatial Thurn und Taxis in Frankfurt.

SPECTRE is the 24th James Bond film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The Jaguar C-X75 stars in a high speed night chase through the streets of Rome driven by Hinx, played by David Bautista. The C-X75 supercar, rated the most advanced Jaguar ever created, was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in collaboration with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering headquarters in Oxfordshire, England.  

SVO was created in June 2014 to focus on meeting the increasing expectations of today’s most discerning and enthusiastic Jaguar and Land Rover customers.  Working on the development of high performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions and limited run collector editions, it represents the very pinnacle of the two iconic brands.  

Specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR also star in major action sequences shot in Austria.  The highly capable Defenders were constructed by the JLR Special Operations division with huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres and enhanced body protection to tackle the challenging terrain of the snow-covered mountain roads used for filming.

SPECTRE is released worldwide from October.
