Set for release in cinemas from the 30th of September onwards, the latest James Bond film ‘No Time To Die’ will feature the Range Rover Sport SVR in a chase sequence and the company is eager for you to see it beforehand.
The scene was led by Oscar-winning special effects and action vehicles supervisor Chris Corbould, who was quick to praise the ability of the enormous Range Rover.
“They’re the perfect car for what we’re doing – high-speed driving, throwing around corners,” said Chris.
In case you’re wondering if Range Rover has modified the SVRs just for the shoot, the company was quick to highlight that the SVRs feature the same suspension as the production models.
The two units you see in the film are finished in Eiger Grey and fitted with 22-inch wheels and the Carbon Pack. The optional package includes items like front fender vents, lower bumper intakes, front grille, and side mirrors finished in gloss carbon fibre.
“We shoot everything for real so we’ve pushed it to the absolute maximum and the pursuit promises to be one of the memorable set-piece moments of the film,” said the stunt coordinator Lee Morrison.
The Sport SVR is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8, with 575 hp and a whopping 700 Nm. That’s enough for it to up and go form 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. It also has a top speed of 283 km/h, making it the fastest Land Rover ever.
No Time To Die, Daniel Craig’s final film as James Bond, will also feature a Range Rover Classic alongside three Defenders and a Series III Land Rover.
