MARQUEE motoring brand Jaguar and partner brands Range Rover and Land Rover will continue their involvement in the James Bond movie franchise, following the announcement of a new partnership for the 24th James Bond film – Spectre.

The stunning Jaguar C-X75 concept vehicle, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot will feature in the movie, with the C-X75 concept vehicles forming part of spectacular chase scene in Rome, alongside the Aston Martin DB10.

The C-X75 vehicles have been built in collaboration with the Williams Advanced Engineering facility in Oxfordshire, England – which forms part of the highly successful Williams F1 operation.

The Range Rover Sport SVRs and Defender Big Foots have been provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, with scenes including the heavily modified Land Rover Defenders & Range Rover Sport SVR already filmed in Austria.

The Range Rover 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.

“This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team,” Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director John Edwards said.

Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have been involved in a succession of Bond films, including the rugged Defender 110 Double Cab Pick-Up, which was driven by field agent Eve Moneypenny in the opening sequence of Skyfall.
