Jaguar Land Rover reveals 007 ‘Spectre’ vehicles in Frankfurt

Aston Martin might still be James Bond’s trip, but Jaguar Land Rover will get lots of screen time in the upcoming 007 film Spectre when it premieres this fall.

The high-performance Land Rover gets some fashion jewelry of its own, consisting of a roof-mounted LED light bar. All the SUVs will certainly be made use of in scenes shot in Austria. All of the vehicles were prepped by Jaguar Land Rover Unique Vehicle Operations (SVO), the business’s bonus jobs department. Created in 2014, SVO handles everything from specialized production models like the Variety Rover Sport SVR, to restorations and customization work. In Spectre, Bond himself will certainly drive an Aston Martin DB10, a design created particularly for the film. Like its Jaguar C-X75 competitor, the DB10 will never ever be offered to custo …
