As with all of the Bond, James Bond movies, 007 isn’t the only star. Cars also star in the No Time To Die, and Land Rover has released behind-the-scenes footage of a chase scene from the film involving a pair of Range Rover Sport SVR sport-utility vehicles.
The video provides “a taste” of the action as the stunt team explains why, as Land Rover puts it, “Range Rover SVR was perfect for the job.”
The team was led by Chris Corbould, a two-time Oscar winner, and stunt coordinator Lee Morrison, who is quoted in the news release saying “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.”
The SVRs used in the movie were selected for “stealth and capability,” we’re told, and are done in Eiger Grey paint, with the optional Carbon Pack, and Narvik Black 22-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, should want to duplicate your own.
“The Range Rover Sport SVR takes luxury performance to new heights with enhanced driving dynamics and a powerful 575 horsepower supercharged V8 engine, making it the perfect choice for the role,” Land Rover notes. “It can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds) and has a top speed of 283km/h (176 mph), making it the fastest ever Land Rover.”
Land Rover also said the vehicles used in the movie were on standard factory suspension.
The movie is scheduled for release September 30.
