Besides the gorgeous women, James Bond movies are also known for the cool cars and the funky gadgetry that go into them.
However, for whatever reason, the Bond franchise also has a kink for destroying all the cool cars in the movies.
That being said, the next James Bond movie titled “No time to die” is all set to arrive in cinemas next April, and word is out that the new Land Rover Defender will be making an appearance in it.
Land Rover has released behind-the-scenes footages during filming of the upcoming movie which gives a unique, behind-the-scenes view of stunt co-ordinator Lee Morrison and stunt driver Jess Hawkins at work behind the wheels of the new Defender.
Land Rover said that its design team worked closely with Special Effects and Action Vehicles Supervisor Chris Corbould on the specification of the Defenders in the film.
Based on the Defender X model in Santorini Black, with darkened skid pans, 20-inch dark finish wheels and professional off-road tyres, they were the first Defenders to be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s new production facility in Nitra, Slovakia.
Among the features that made it ideal to be featured in the movie includes the ground clearance of 291 mm, approach, breakover, and departure angles of 38, 28 and 40 degrees (Off Road height) respectively, a maximum water-wading depth of 900 mm, as well as the new Wade programme in the Terrain Response 2 system.
Alongside the Defenders, No Time To Die also features the Range Rover Sport SVR, Series III Land Rover, and the Range Rover Classic.
We just hope that all of them will make it out of the scenes in one piece, although it is highly unlikely.
“No Time To Die” is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007. The film will be released globally in cinemas from April 2020.
