Beloved British car writer and collector Harry Metcalfe has added one hell of a vehicle to his garage: one of the ten Land Rover Defender SVX monster trucks made for that mountain chase scene in the last James Bond movie Spectre. Lucky for us, Metcalfe’s taking the opportunity to crawl all over it with a camera.
I, unlike many Americans, enjoyed last year’s SPECTRE. I thought it felt very much like a campy late-Connery or Roger Moore James Bond film and it was fun when it wasn’t boring you to death. But then I found this 1990's Pepsi Max commercial, and now there’s no excuses.
Set aside some “you-time” really quick and just enjoy the flirtatious growl and sultry body contours of this poetically beautiful Jaguar C-X75 concept.
Only one Aston Martin DB10 out of the 10 developed for last year’s Bond film, SPECTRE, will ever be made available for sale, and it just sold for $3.5 million at a charity auction—more than double its expected take. You missed your chance.
This blue Spectre R42 is an ex factory demonstrator and one of just twenty-three R42s ever built. Some say if you validate its 175mph top speed, Monica Bellucci will buy you dinner. In Slough. (That was a Spectre joke.)
SPECTRE is the 24th James Bond movie, with Daniel Craig back as Bond and Sam Mendes, (in)famous for 2012’s Skyfall, back to direct what is ultimately the best possible result for a follow up film to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond. The trailers were wrong. This movie is so much fun.
Skyfall was the Bond movie that shattered audience expectations as well as box office records. Now director Sam Mendes is back to try and make lightning strike twice. Did he pull it off with Spectre? I saw the film last night, and I’m here with a few mildly spoiler-y thoughts before you go see it yourself this…
I lost count of just how many hours I spent on planes trying to get to where I needed to be to drive this car, but if Jaguar calls me again, I’m ready to fly to the moon and back for it, no problem. If it involves the Jaguar C-X75, the magical prototype supercar that stars in Spectre, I’m there.
Nine days. Nine days until SPECTRE, the 24th Bond film, is released stateside and we finally get to see the Aston Martin DB10, Jaguar C-X75, Land Rover Defender “Bigfoot” and the Range Rover Sport SVR in glorious action.
The crew cab Land Rover Defenders we’ve already seen slam, ram and explode there way through a few James Bond trailers are totally awesome looking. Here’s a big ol’ image for your desktop so you can bask in their awesomeness all day!
Land Rover is going to use the new James Bond movie to sell some cars because of course. This new trailer they cut together puts their Range Rover SVR and Defender crew cab in the limelight, and damn to these things look good attacking each other.
A planned heist against Fort Knox, a person named after genitalia, a mute man with a killer hat, a British spy with enough charm to turn a gay woman straight, and a villain obsessed with gold. Here’s the fourth best Bond movie ever made, 1964’s Goldfinger!
I cannot imagine a better media campaign for an upcoming film than having the star repeatedly talk about how tired he is, how little he cares about the next film, and how he’ll only do it again for the money. Daniel Craig is the best possible salesman for Spectre.
Audiences cheered when the 1964 Aston Martin DB5, fully laden with gadgets, reappeared in the James Bond franchise with 2012’s Skyfall after first appearing in Goldfinger. Along with the DB5, SPECTRE will have another automotive connection to one of the best Bond films of all time.
We’re just about a month away from the newest James Bond film, Spectre, and Sony figured we could use one more trailer to raise our collective excitement just a little higher. It worked.
To be fair, so can your car, and it doesn’t even have to be an Aston Martin. But it sure as hell won’t do it this gracefully.
With SPECTRE releasing worldwide in just over two months, 007 and Aston Martin are flaunting the star of the film, the Aston Martin DB10. Video-geniuses XCAR, as well as new Top Gear’s Chris Evans managed to get exclusive looks at the bespoke Bond car.
Being in SPECTRE is a huge deal for both Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin, and both companies did their best to supply the producers with the most amazing vehicles James Bond has ever seen. But they are for your eyes only.
As some of you may know, I have been busy for just about the last year keeping up with all the crazy automotive mayhem going on with the upcoming Bond film, SPECTRE. Well folks, this is what it has all been building to.
