THE NEW LANDROVER DEFENDER STARS IN THE NEW JAMES BOND MOVIE

James Bond is back in another 007 block buster and the new Land Rover Defender stars in the movie ‘No Time To Die’. The new installment of the British agent installment will be the 25th. The Range Rover Sport SVR will also be on this installment with classic Land Rover and Range Rover models. Every Defender 110X is Santorini black with satin dark grey alloy wheels. The defender sets new standard for toughness in the testing it went through in the production of the movie.

There will be the topless Land Rover series III which had its generation run through 1971 to 1990 in production. The classic luxury Range Rover SUV that was produced from 1970 to 1996 was also restored for the purpose of this movie. The Range Rover Sport SVR with its 5.0 litre V8 supercharged – it is the fastest and most powerful Range Rover ever with 22-inch gloss black wheels. The SVR is Eiger grey in colour and it has carbon fibre exterior pack with body coloured fibre bonnet. There is also the bulletproof classic Aston Martin with a whole package of technology as you may expect and a sweet Aston Martin DBS. Aston Martin has not failed to mention it on their Twitter handle and we quote, ‘More than 50 years after its first appearance in ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE (1969), the DBS name returns for a brand new Bond mission this April’.

Worthy of note is the fact that many features on these action vehicles are not on standard production models. They have been specially modified for safety, performance and show. The roof is for extreme duty, front beams and undertray, roll cages, fuel cell, non-production seats and seat belts, specially rated tyres and modified ride height are all modification to suit the purpose of this production work. Needless to say that all driving actions were carried out by well trained professional stunt drivers and should not be attempted.

We got to know that Bond, having left active service and enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica gets called from a friend from the CIA, Felix Leiter. He comes for help and a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist begins only to keep unfolding all sorts of treacherous situations beyond expectation. These lead Bond onto the trail of a mysterious well-armed Villain who has all sorts of new technology. This movie is expected in cinemas by April 2, 2020 and you can watch its official trailer here https://www.landrover.com/james-bond-film/hero_gallery.html/281-761866
