Driven by Formula One driver Felipe Massa (Williams Martini Racing), the Jaguar C-X75 supercar has arrived in Mexico City, Mexico, to celebrate the premiere of the 24th James Bond movie -- SPECTRE -- in the Americas as well as its participation in the Formula One Gran Premio de Mexico.
SPECTRE premiered in the city on November 2, 2015. The Jaguar C-X75 was involved in one of the unforgettable high-speed chases in the movie. It was driven by the antagonist Hinx, who is played by actor Dave Bautista.
This supercar is considered as the most advanced Jaguar to date. It was created by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in partnership with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering.
According to Massa, it was a thrill to drive a real stunt car used in a Bond movie. He remarked that since Jaguar and Williams Advanced Engineering have collaborated on producing the C-X75, it was great to experience the car that his colleagues have developed outside of Formula One.
SPECTRE is brought by Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations is a division of JLR that concentrates on creating bespoke commissions and halo vehicles as well as heritage products and branded goods.
The SVO, meanwhile, is part of Special Operations in charge of creating high performance models for both Jaguar and Land Rover. It is also responsible for creating low volume yet high value Limited Edition models as well as personalization products for both Jaguar and Land Rover.
After getting his hand on a cryptic message from the previous M, James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) found himself fulfilling an unofficial mission in Mexico, London and Rome. In the Italian city, Bond meets the Lucia Sciarra (played Monica Bellucci), who was the widow of infamous criminal Marco Sciarra.
Lucia went on to tell Bond about the criminal organization as well as a secret meeting that will occur soon. Bond then infiltrated the meeting and discovered the name of the organization -- SPECTRE.
On the other hand, the new head of Centre for National Security, Max Denbigh (played by Andrew Scott), also known as C, placed into doubt Bond’s actions as well as the existence of the MI6, which is now led by a new M (played by Ralph Fiennes).
Bond then enlisted the help of new agents Moneypenny (played by Naomie Harris) and Q (played by Ben Whishaw) to look for Madeleine Swann (played by Léa Seydoux), daughter of his old enemy Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), who may know something that could further uncover the secrets of SPECTRE.
SPECTRE will be the fourth time that Daniel Craig will play the James Bond role. The film is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and directed by Sam Mendes. Story is by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade while screenplay is by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth.
SPECTRE is now playing on the big screens in the United Kingdom and is going to be shown on theaters in Mexico and the United States on November 5 and 6, respectively. EON Productions Limited and Danjaq LLC both are wholly owned and controlled by the Broccoli/Wilson family.
Danjaq and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios hold the copyright in the existing James Bond films. Danjaq also has the right to produce future James Bond films.
