James Bond’s No Time To Die will hit U.S. cinemas on October 8 and in the lead-up to the film’s release, Land Rover has offered a behind-the-scenes look at the Range Rover Sport SVR models used throughout.
Featured in No Time To Die are a pair of Range Rover SVR models finished in Eiger Grey with 22-inch Narvik Black alloy wheels and the optional Carbon Park. They have also been equipped with the SUV’s available body-colored carbon fiber hood and were chosen as the perfect chase vehicles for an off-road sequence.
“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,” stunt coordinator Lee Morrison said in a statement. “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.”
During the chase, Bond is pursued by the two SVRs while driving a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. At one stage, one of the SVR’s veers off the side of the road, hits a dirt bank and flips over.
Land Rover notes that the Range Rover Sport SVRs used in the film had the same specially-tuned suspension system as the production model.
A plethora of other models are featured in the new James Bond film. These include the Aston Martin Valhalla, Land Rover Defender, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, Aston Martin DB5, and an original V8 Vantage.
