LAND ROVER CELEBRATE BOND PARTNERSHIP WITH SPECTRE EVENT AT FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW
Jaguar Land Rover revealed their stunt vehicles which will feature in SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond film, at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The vehicles made their global debut at a star-studded event where Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and David Bautista (Hinx) were guests of honour.
Guests to the partnership celebration event were able to see both the Range Rover Sport SVR and the Defender, which feature in the film, up close for the first time.
Naomie Harris, who reprises her role of Moneypenny for the film 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.”
The event also had live musical entertainment from British singer and musician, John Newman.
Specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR, were specifically built by SVO and feature in a high-speed chase in the film.
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.
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.”
