Range Rover Sport SVR Pushed to Extremes in new Bond Film
The Range Rover Sport SVR takes a star turn in the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die. The stunt professionals on set pushed the vehicle to extremes as it went off-road in a chase sequence that put the luxury performance SUV in the centre of the action.
Stunt coordinator Lee Morrison 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.”
Fastest Land Rover for the Perfect Choice
The Range Rover Sport SVR was a perfect choice for the Bond film, with its enhanced driving dynamics and powerful 423kW supercharged V8 engine. The specially tuned suspension, thanks to Special Vehicle Operations engineers, gives the vehicle more responsive handling and tighter body control. Able to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and with a top speed of 283km, it has earned the mantle of the fastest ever Land Rover.
This is not the first appearance by a Range Rover in a Bond film. In 1983 a Range Rover Convertible appeared in Octopussy and in 2015 a Range Rover Sport starred in a major action sequence in SPECTRE. No Time To Die will also feature a Range Rover Classic, alongside three Defenders and a Series III Land Rover.
Finbar McFall, Land Rover Brand and Jaguar and Land Rover Marketing Operations Director said, “The Range Rover Sport SVRs in No Time To Die strike a unique mix of stealth and performance. Now you can replicate this combination and celebrate the release of the 25th Bond film with a single click on the Land Rover configurator.”
