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 moonlit streets of Rome in one of the movie's most iconic high speed chase scenes. Driven by Hinx, which is played by David Bautista, the C-X75 supercar, named the most advanced Jaguar ever created. This vehicle was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations in collaboration with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering headquarters in England. Specially modified Land Rover Defenders and the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR also star in major action sequences shot in Austria. The highly capable Defenders were constructed by the JLR Special Operations division with huge 37inch diameter off-road tires and enhanced body protection to tackle the challenging terrain of the snow-covered mountain roads used for filming.
Regarding the Jaguar C-X75, its designed to deliver stunning on-road performance, while adopting cutting-edge technology for remarkably economical running. The performance is proven while observing the few scenes that are viral on the internet. It is built with the help of carbon-fiber, drawn from Motorsports technology and used in the chassis, creates an incredibly lightweight yet rigidly strong structure. Super-fine fibers made from pure carbon are woven into fabric sheets that are then carefully impregnated with a resin and baked into shape with a combination of heat and pressure. The dynamic styling of the C-X75 hints at its exceptional performance. While the designing was taking place officials at Jaguar did state that, their goals are an under 3 seconds 0-100Km acceleration time and perhaps even more amazing, 0-160Km acceleration time of less than 6 seconds.
This incredible performance is accompanied by very low emissions, thanks to the vehicle's lightweight construction and cutting-edge powertrain technology. C-X75 is not just just about straight-line performance, its ideal weight distribution also gives it optimal handling. The battery pack is mounted in the chassis in such a way as to become a positive factor for handling, stabilizing the car at higher speeds. Meanwhile, the compact engine is small enough to be mounted low in the engine bay and to keep weight to an absolute minimum. For the prototype used in the film, there should have been a few minor technical modifications, to perform the stunt sequences smoothly.
The new SVR unleashes the full potential of the Range Rover Sport's lightweight and robust all-aluminum architecture, while retaining the refinement, luxury and off-road capability for which Range Rover is world-renowned. Exterior design enhancements ensure the SVR makes a striking visual impact, while simultaneously boosting cooling and aerodynamic efficiencies. A bespoke interior featuring unique sports seats provides further visual differentiation and ensures occupants are held securely in place during spirited driving. An official stated that, the Range Rover Sport SVR is a natural progression beyond the core vehicle's outstanding on and off-road capabilities and leading-edge design. Its exhilarating performance will satisfy a particularly demanding customer set.
The first Land Rover to wear the new high-performance SVR badge, the Range Rover Sport SVR is capable of accelerating from 0-100Km in a breath-taking 4.7 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 260Km. The SVR's range topping 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine has been developed to produce 550PS and 680Nm, substantial 40PS and 56Nm increases, while its advanced ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive chassis have been optimized to complement the astonishing performance, whatever the weather. Now its clear as to why the James Bond team is so choosy in selecting rides for their films. Further adding, there were specially modified Land Rover's also used for filming, which are seen alongside the Range Rover SVR.
Stunt vehicles of both brands were unveiled, which are exclusively used in the 24th James Bond flick which is slated for an October release.
