Land Rover Defender Gets James Bond Debut
BROUGHT TO YOU BY LAND ROVER SOUTH DADE
And action! Land Rover has announced that the New Defender 110 model will be making its motion picture debut in the James Bond film, No Time To Die. This is the very first movie to feature the New Defender, the latest vehicle to star in an iconic James Bond car chase scene. There are numerous reasons to love the Defender, from its capabilities to its incredibly high-tech features but it got to work with Bond, James Bond himself! We are going to talk about all there is to love about the Defender and why the 007 stunt team chose this SUV for the movie below, so keep reading!
WHY DID THE 007 EXPERT STUNT TEAM CHOOSE THE DEFENDER?
Finding a vehicle that is sleek enough for James Bond himself that can also handle those car chase scenes can be a feat but not this time! James Bond Stunt Coordinator, Lee Morrison, said that they needed an unstoppable vehicle to go up against the elements like river crossings and steep descents because designing and coordinating action scenes for the Bond franchise requires a non-compromising mindset. This is why they chose the New Defender because it certainly does deliver a non-compromising mindset. Morrison was incredibly impressed that the model is back and better than ever before and was excited to use it in the movie! The 007 expert stunt team put the New Defender to the test in the most extreme off-roading conditions to demonstrate its unstoppable nature and boy does it show on the big screen!
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE DESIGN OF THE DEFENDER FOR THE MOVIE?
The Land Rover design team worked closely with the Supervisor of Special Effects and Action Vehicles, Chris Corbould, to design the Defender models used specifically for the movie. The models used in the movie are based on the Defender X model with a Santorini Black paint job. The models also feature 20-inch dark finish wheels wrapped in professional off-roading tires and darkened skid plates. This ultra-sleek and sinister look is perfect for the Bond movie! These were the very first Defender models to be built at the new Jaguar Land Rover production facility in Slovakia.
