Cars from James Bond's next film - Spectre

Snapshot: We take a look at the cars that will be featured in the upcoming Bond film, Spectre.

Ian Fleming might have not mentioned of an Aston Martin DB10 in his novels, but that won’t stop Daniel Craig from driving one, will it? Set to be the Brit’s fourth film as James Bond, Spectre is out in theatres later this year. And as expected, it won’t be low on automotive spectacle: there’s the Aston Martin DB10 driven by Agent 007 himself; a Range Rover SVR; a highly specialized Land Rover Defender; and the villain’s Jaguar C-X75.

Let us take a look at the cars, starting with the villain's C-X75. 

Jaguar C-X75

To be driven by the main villain in Spectre, the C-X75 certainly proves that the company’s ‘Good to be Bad’ campaign was spot on. Showcased as a concept in 2010, the C-X75, unfortunately, wasn’t put into production, but the international press which drove the C-X75 prototypes came back impressed. Given the way it looks, it might end up being the centre of attraction in the film, even if the director, Sam Mendes, shows you the DB10 more. The design team is said to have worked closely with Mendes, when making the DB10, so you know which is going to be his favourite, anyway.

Aston Martin DB10

Almost as iconic as each other, Aston Martin and Bond complement each other, right from the days when Sean Connery piloted the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger. Half a decade hence, it’s Daniel Craig and his new DB10 ready to take the relationship ahead. But unlike the DB5, which went on sale, the DB10 is Bond-only. Ten examples of the car will be made, and sadly, none will be sold to the public. It looks stunning, nevertheless.

As if Bond needed exclusivity...

Range Rover Sport SVR

Also making an appearance will be the high performance version of the Range Rover Sport, called Range Rover Sport SVR. The driver-oriented SUV is powered by a supercharged 5-litre V8 engine that makes 550PS, is available for sale (unfortunately not in India yet), has lapped the famed Nurburgring Nordschliefe race track in 8m 14s (for reference, production hypercars are a minute quicker but cost about six times more!), and can prove to be potent off the road, too.

Land Rover Defender

The other Land Rover in the film is going to be a specially made Defender. Reminiscent of the Defender Big Foot, this Defender is modified to tackle bad roads, and comes with an uprated suspension, huge off-roading tyres, big quad roof-mounted fog lamps, and added body protection.

Given that the Defender will be phased out this year (production will cease at the UK plant, while company is still contemplating on limited production elsewhere), this is certainly a great way for the iconic vehicle to go out. Spectre will reach theatres in October/November this year, depending on the country you live in.

To keep you hooked, here's a bonus video of the Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75 being driven on the sets of Spectre.
