Jaguar has settled speculation this week surrounding its C-X75 supercar’s big-screen debut: it’s happening, and it won’t be alone.
Along with Aston Martin’s new DB10, the C-X75 will be joined in the new James Bond Spectre film by the Range Rover Sport SVR performance SUV and special Big Foot versions of the iconic Land Rover Defender.
Fans of the Bond franchise’s famous chase scenes could be in for another thrill, with Jaguar Land Rover also confirming today that the C-X75 and DB10 will feature “in a spectacular chase” through Rome.
We can likely expect both to be destroyed in the film, although it is understood that, like the DB10, the C-X75 used in the chase was built especially for the event - suggesting it will have little or none of the original concepts’ advanced technologies on board.
Previous reports have pointed to Jaguar’s supercharged 5.0 litre V8 as the likely source of motivation for the on-screen C-X75.
The Defender’s appearance, in its specially enhanced and high-riding Big Foot form, could also be its last JLR-supplied screen feature, with production of the legendary 4x4 set to end later this year.
