James Bond has a habit of picking the world’s finest cars for his fleet, as the world of espionage calls for the best of the best when it comes to aesthetics. It’s no question then why “Spectre,” the 24th James Bond movie set for release later this year, will feature three special selections from Jaguar Land Rover.
Announced today in a press release from Jaguar Land Rover, the Jaguar C-X75, Ranger Rover Sport SVR and Land Rover Defender Big Foot will all appear in in the new Bond film. This news comes on the heels of the NHTSA issuing a recall of 104,000 vehicles from Jaguar Land Rover North America.

Each of the cars in the film was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, and features special modifications for shooting. The Big Foot in particular features bespoke suspension and 37-inch off-road tires.
“This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team,” stated Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations in the release.
Scenes involving the Defender and Sport SVR were already filmed in Austria, and the film will feature the C-X75 concepts in an especially “spectacular chase scene in Rome.”
