The line-up of JLR vehicles set to star in SPECTRE
Vehicles manufactured in the UK have been assigned a very special mission –to help 007 evade the enemy in the latest James Bond movie.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced this week the line-up of vehicles set to feature in SPECTRE, the 24th in the series of James Bond films, including the Jaguar C-X75s, Range Rover Sport SVRs and Defender Big Foots.
The Jaguar C-X75, produced with a carbon fibre chassis for lightweighting, will feature in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome alongside the Aston Martin DB10. The C-X75 vehicles have been built in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering facility in Oxfordshire, England.
Jaguar says carbon fibre, 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.
