Jaguar Land Rover unveil new Bond cars in Frankfurt

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) revealed its new James Bond cars - the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender - to the public for the first time.

Appearing in the new Bond movie SPECTRE, the cars were joined in Frankfurt by Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and David Bautista (Hinx), showcasing special stunt vehicles used in the latest instalment of the James Bond series.

SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond film, from Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment, sees the Jaguar C-X75 drive through the moonlit streets of Rome in a high speed chase scenes. Driven by Hinx, the C-X75 supercar, described by JLR as the most advanced Jaguar ever created, was provided by JLR 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 the development of high performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions and limited run collector editions. 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 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.

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 Turkey. 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".

Bond fans will also be treated to exclusive behind the scenes 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.

SPECTRE is released worldwide from October.
