Prepare to bid for Land Rover Defender SVX Concept from 007 movie at RM Sotheby’s auction

Did you know that Spectre, the 24th movie instalment based on Ian Fleming’s novel, had ten Land Rover Defenders to use back in 2015? Well, that is because the producers asked Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations to build ten heavily customized crew cab 110s especially for James Bond’s villains.

All ten vehicles were then taken to Bowler, Land Rover’s British racing partner for a wide range of upgrades including an uprated 180hp over the standard 120hp engine output. Included in the upgrades as well were Recaro racing bucket seats, harnesses, a full- roll cage, a new set of 37-inch tyres plus a warn winch with rope at the front. For complete control during an action-packed sequence, Bowler had also equipped the entire fleet with Bilstein rally shock absorbers.

But since some of the vehicles got ruined while filming the movie, only a few have remained intact to this day. One of them is the Land Rover Defender SVX Concept that was sold to a private client immediately after the minor footages have been completed. This particular vehicle had only been used for drive-by scenes and it was unscathed throughout the movie. The owner has now consigned the massive off-roader to RM Sotheby’s for the annual London event this coming September 6. The auction house will offer the vehicle to registered bidders. The bidding will run for approximately four to five hours.

Spectre pays homage to James Bond film, introduces fresh new take on long-running franchise

The dialogue has always been part of the allure of any James Bond movie. More often than not, however, the dialogue involves sexual innuendo since seduction and charisma are part of the portfolio of skill sets that 007 cultivates.

It’s rare to find a James Bond movie that attempts to reach out directly to the audience and the real world. Yet, Spectre, the latest in the 007 films, executes a fine fourth-wall breaking scene when M, now played by Ralph Fiennes, tells the agents in the Double-0 program that they could be phased out in favor of wire-tapping, drones and other technological advancements.

007 himself will not agree that spies are ready to be obsolete, because nothing beats being there, face-to-face with the villain and being at the right place to remove the threat. It is this kind of personal conflict that defines Spectre and it is the source of tension between the characters.
