3 JLR cars from latest Bond film SpectreBack

SpectreYet another gripping Bond film is currently in the making, and as the build up for the highly anticipated Spectre begins, we take a look at three of the cars confirmed to star in the latest James Bond film.

Spectre is the 24th James Bond film to be created, the fourth film to star Daniel Craig and the second film to be directed by Sam Mendes. Scheduled for release on 6th November 2015, the hotly anticipated Spectre promises to be its best film yet.

Jaguar Land Rover will get premium screen time in Spectre with at least three of the firm’s models featured, the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot. In fact, sequences involving the SVR and Big Foot have already been filmed in Austria. Below we take a look at the three JLR cars set to be hot in demand preceding the epic film.

Spectre1Jaguar C-X75

A Jaguar C-X75 with the number plate ROMA 860K was spotted being filmed in a spectacular chase scene in Rome earlier this year. The C-X75 is thought to be the car belonging to a new Bond villain in the new film, henchman Mr Hinx played by Dave Bautista.

Yet to hit the production line and first unveiled as a concept car at the Paris motor show back in 2010, there were only five working prototypes of the C-X75 in existence, prior to the making of Spectre. As it stands, the C-X75 has the potential to rival some of the world’s top supercars to include the LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Developed in-house by Jaguar, the C-X75’s 1.6-litre petrol plug-in hybrid engine is fitted with both a supercharger and a turbocharger and produces unbelievable power for its size – 502bhp at 10,000rpm, whilst immediately behind the driver, there’s a 19kWh lithium ion battery pack capable of supplying a continuous 300kW of power. In total, the C-X75 is able to produce in excess of 850bhp and 738lb ft of torque! Furthermore, it can accelerate from 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds with speed limits easily above 200mph.

With speeds as impressive as this, it’s hard to believe the C-X75 produces less than 89g/km of CO2 and can drive for 40 miles on battery power alone. But if you fancy buying one, Jaguar has no plans to release the C-X75 onto the market just yet.

Spectre2Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR

Jaguar Land Rover claims the SVR is the fastest and most powerful Land Rover car ever built, so perfect for the latest Bond film, Spectre.

Sporting an upgraded 542bhp 5.0-litre V8 engine, the Range Rover Sport SVR offers buyers the height of luxury both inside and out and is built to compete with JLR’s hugely successful M, AMG and Quattro GmbH divisions.

The SVR is capable of achieving a top speed of 162mph and possesses a supercharged motor that produces similar speed to that of a two-seat sports car. Designed to be as at home on the track as it is on the road and mud, the car is well-designed for the stunt scenes it may be subjected to in Spectre, but we’ll have to wait another 6 months to find out just what those are!

Spectre3Land Rover Defender Big Foot

The Land Rover Defender Big Foot is a variation of Land Rover’s Defender, a popular choice amongst those who are happy to swap luxury and comfort with practicality and off-road capability, and due to Big Foot featuring huge 37-inch off-road tyres built for extreme terrain and enhanced body protection, we can expect to witness some rough rides in the forthcoming Spectre film!

The Defender is not the most attractive car, nor does it offer very good performance or drive quality, but if you’re looking for a sound off-road car, it definitely foots the bill. The Defender’s 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine packing 266lb ft of punch, is guaranteed to pull you out of most situations and can tow braked trailers of up to 3500kg.

In its natural habitat, the car is designed to impress with low-range mechanicals and lofty ground clearance, but on the road the Defender bounces around all over the place, and has to take corners at a crawl. Comfort is also bottom of the Defender’s list of priorities sporting a very basic cabin and poor equipment levels.

If you can get past all of the above, and the high price tag, you’ll be rewarded with low maintenance and running costs, high residual values and a bullet proof build – something James Bond might just be thankful for!
