A number of C-X75s will star alongside a brace of heavily-modified Range Rover Sport SVRs and imposing Land Rover Defender Big Foots, all of which have been provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.

The headline Jaguar C-X75s, built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering, will be used in a classic Roman car chase, where it will compete for screen time with an Aston Martin DB10. Sport SVR and Defender scenes have already been shot in Austria, the latter using huge 37-inch diameter off-road tyres, bespoke suspension and enhanced body protection to go harder for longer.

Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, said: “This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team.’’

SPECTRE’s storyline revolves around a cryptic message received from Bond’s past, that sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. It is directed by Sam Mendes and written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Production was overseen by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

From childhood stories of my Dad's Phase 2 XW GT-HO, I have always loved cars. That passion was nurtured via epic road trip stories read in magazines, undertaken in wonderfully evocative machinery. It was inspirational, and there was no longer a choice: I was going to make a career in motoring journalism. At Trailing Throttle, we want to recreate that feeling of behind-the-wheel immersion. We hope you enjoy the ride.
