Besides the impressive Aston Martin DB10, the new James Bond movie, SPECTRE, will also show some impressive vehicles from both Jaguar and Land Rover. According to the official press release, the new movie will include vehicles such as the Jaguar C-X75, Range Rover Sport SVR and Defender Big Foot, all of them provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.

The Jaguar C-X75 supercar will be featured in an impressive car chase sequence filmed through Rome alongside the Aston martin DB10, while the scenes including the Range Rover Sport SVR and Defender Big Foot will be filmed in Austria.

Land Rover said that the Defender Big Foot features huge 37-inch diameter off-road tires in order to tackle extreme terrain, as well as a bespoke suspension and enhanced body protection.

For those who don’t know, the Range Rover Sport SVT is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that generates 550 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. The impressive engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds), while top speed is limited at 260 km/h or 162 mph.

Meanwhile, the Jaguar C-X75 uses four electric motors at each wheel, each of them delivering 145 kW (195 hp). The total output delivered by the electric motors is 580 kW or 778 hp. Still, the C-X75 also feature mid-mounted micro gas-turbines that can generate 140 kw (188 hp), which can charge the batteries or can be used in order to extend the range of the supercar to 900 km or 560 miles.

Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards, said: "This is an exciting partnership for Jaguar Land Rover and an opportunity to demonstrate the fantastic capabilities of the Special Operations team." [source: Jaguar]
