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.”
