It’s Official. Jaguar C-X75 Will Be The Villain’s Ride in Bond Movie Spectre

You already know the next James Bond flick, Spectre, will feature the specially designed Aston Martin DB10 as the hero’s ride and probably had caught wind about Jaguar Land Rover’s involvement in the movie too. Well, the rumor has been confirmed. Jaguar Land Rover has let out the official words on their involvement in this Fall’s blockbuster. Unfortunately, Jaguar Land Rover’s ride (or should we say, rides), in most part, won’t get too intimate with Mr. Bond as the ‘star’ car involved, the C-X75 supercar, will be siding with the villains. Regardless, you can expect these cars to slug it out in the Bond-usual, adrenaline-pumping car chases. Not sure how much screen time the C-X75 will have, but Jaguar Land Rover specifically points out that the C-X75 will go head to head with the DB10 in a spectacular car chase sequence through Rome.

The James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car

everyone knows the obligatory car stunts in James Bond movies are make believe, but that doesn’t stop fans from admiring and fantasized about those stunts. seriously, don’t do that. those stunts are, well, stunts and should be limited to your fantasy. you certainly don’t want to ruin your lovely Aston Martin DBS V12 and not to mention endangering your life and others in process, but not if those stunts are performed over a miniature, like this James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car.
