JAGUAR LAND ROVER TO CELEBRATE THE GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY OF JAMES BOND AT PARIS MOTOR SHOW

27 SEPTEMBER 2012

Jaguar Land Rover will celebrate 50 years of James Bond at the 2012 Paris Motor show by displaying one of the Land Rover Defenders used in Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's upcoming motion picture SKYFALL™, in UK theatres 26th October. The Double Cab Pick Up, driven in the opening sequence by field agent Eve (played by Naomie Harris), will be shown on the Land Rover stand during the second press day on Friday 28 Sept.

Jaguar Land Rover provided a total of 77 vehicles to the SKYFALL™ production, including the Land Rover Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar XJ for use both on-screen and as production support vehicles.

Speaking at Pinewood Studios, where Bond was filmed, Co-Producer Andrew Noakes, a veteran of 11 James Bond films, said: "Bond is quintessentially British and Jaguar and
Land Rover are two of the most established and globally recognised British brands, so it was a natural step for us to involve them in the film."

Alongside Daniel Craig as James Bond, the cast includes; Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney.

Global Brand Director for Land Rover John Edwards said: "Land Rover is extremely proud to be associated with the new James Bond film SKYFALL™. The iconic Land Rover Defender is recognised around the world for its rugged appeal and the Range Rover is the pinnacle of SUV luxury and capability. Both vehicles are renowned as examples of excellence in British design and engineering."

The film, from Albert R. Broccoli's Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, is directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his third film as James Bond 007.

SKYFALL™ will begin its worldwide roll-out in the UK and Ireland on 26th October 2012. The Defender features in the Skyfall trailer which can be viewed below.
