Unveiled today in Germany at the Thurn und Taxis in Frankfurt, Jaguar Land Rover hosted a glamorous event that featured movie stars Naomie Harris and David Bautista as well as British singer and musician John Newman. The special stunt vehicles that will be featured in the upcoming Spectre film include the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender.
The C-X75 stars in one of the movie’s most iconic high-speed chase scenes with Bautista behind the wheel as it drives through the moonlit streets of Rome. The special C-X75 was created by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) along with Williams Advanced Engineering.

The iconic SUVs making an appearance include specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR. The SUVs will be seen in major action sequences shot in Austria with the Defenders boasting massive 37-inch off-road tires and enhanced body protection to take on the challenging snow-covered terrain used for filming.
“I made my Bond debut in the Defender, and I have so many fond memories shooting that sequence in Istanbul,” said actress Naomi Harris, who reprises the role of Moneypenny. “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.”
