Jaguar has confirmed that its C-X75 supercar will be taking a starring role in the latest Bond film, Spectre.
The British manufacturer stated that its stunning hybrid creation, which was killed off before ever reaching showrooms, would be driven by Bond’s nemesis in the 24th instalment of the film franchise, in a stunning high-speed car chase through Rome. Bond himself will be taking to the wheel of the brand-new (and yet-to-be-revealed) Aston Martin DB10.
Though Jaguar Land Rover has had a partnership with the Bond films since Daniel Craig took the role, this is the first time we will see a Jaguar sports car in action.
The brand released the above teaser image, showing the C-X75 alongside a brace of modified Land Rover products, including a Range Rover Sport, which are also due to make an appearance in the film.
The cars are the work of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) department, which was formed to create not only specialist one-offs but also bespoke customisations for well-heeled enthusiasts.
John Edwards, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, said: "This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team."
While the Jaguar C-X75 was originally aborted before official production commenced – largely because of the economic climate at the time – company officials have not ruled out the advanced supercar making a comeback at some point in the future.
