Luxury car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover will celebrate their vehicles’ role in the highly anticipated Bond adventure, SPECTRE, at the Dubai International Motor Show 2015. Cars, including the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and the iconic Land Rover Defender, will steal the limelight as they make their first public debut in the Middle East from 10th November.
SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment, sees the Jaguar C-X75 drive through the moonlit streets of Rome in one of the movie’s most iconic high speed chase scenes. Driven by the henchman Hinx, played by Dave Bautista, the Jaguar C-X75 supercar, named the most advanced Jaguar ever created, was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in collaboration with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering headquarters in Oxfordshire, England.
Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) was created in June 2014 to focus on meeting the increasing expectations of today’s most discerning and enthusiastic Jaguar Land Rover customers. Working on the development of high performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions and limited run collector editions; it represents the very pinnacle of the two iconic brands.
Specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR take part in major action sequences shot in Austria. The highly capable Defenders were constructed by the JLR Special Operations division with huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres and enhanced body protection to tackle the challenging terrain of the snow-covered mountain roads used for filming.
Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENA, Bruce Robertson, said: “Jaguar Land Rover is extremely proud to be able to display these iconic vehicles in one of the most celebrated film franchises in the world at the Dubai International Motor Show. This show is the perfect platform to celebrate and showcase production and concept vehicles alike to our customers in the MENA region.”
The public can view the vehicles at the Jaguar Land Rover stand located in Sheikh Saeed Hall 1 at Stand SS105.
