Range Rover Sport stars in Bond movie
September 14, 2021
The Range Rover Sport SVR goes off-road to pursue James Bond in the latest behind-the-scenes glimpse of No time To Die, in cinemas from September 30.
The action vehicles and stunt professionals on the new James Bond film pushed the most powerful Land Rover ever made to extremes.
The chase sequence puts the luxury performance SUV in the midst of the action, led by Oscar-winning special effects and action vehicles supervisor Chris Corbould and stunt coordinator Lee Morrison.
Lee Morrison, stunt co-ordinator, said: “I was really keen to shoot a Bond chase sequence off-road, in a really challenging environment and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect choice for this part of the story. 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.”
The Range Rover Sport SVR takes luxury performance to new heights with enhanced driving dynamics and a powerful 575PS supercharged V8 engine, making it the perfect choice for the role. It can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 176mph, making it the fastest ever Land Rover.
The SVRs used in No Time To Die feature the same specially tuned suspension as production models devised by engineers at Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to deliver more responsive handling and tighter body control without compromising comfort.
The pair of Eiger Grey models are fitted with Gloss Black 22-inch alloy wheels and the optional Carbon Pack, which includes Gloss Carbon Fibre front fender vents, lower bumper intakes, grille and mirrors. The optional lightweight SVR Carbon Fibre vented bonnet features a body coloured finish in the film but can also be specified with an exposed carbon fibre centre section.
