A Spectre of a Landy

Section:

Villain’s Land Rover used in James Bond film ‘Spectre’ to be auctioned in London

 

A 2014 Land Rover Defender SVX used in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre is to be sold in London in September.

 

Offered without reserve, the fully UK road legal vehicle – which was one of ten such models specially adapted by Belper, Derbyshire based Bowler Motorsport for the £186 million ($245 million, €208 million or درهم900 million) film starring Daniel Craig – has been driven just 145 miles and unlike its counterparts was only used in drive-by scenes.

 

Described as “worthy of a Bond villain” and upgraded from 120 bhp to 185 bhp and 500 Nm of torque, the ‘Spectre Defender’ offered also features huge 37-inch tyres, a full roll cage, rose joints and Bilstein rally dampers.

 

RM Sotheby’s will sell the Land Rover at their Battersea Park sale on 6th September.

  1. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good choice!!!!!!!!!! For once Steepler Times has got it right in a car choice!!!!!!!!!! No wrecking ball required —— this one will do the wrecking itself!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!! Wowzers!!!!!!!!

  2. This makes my little Freelander look very amateur. I feel an upgrade might be in order and will definitely take my hubby for a look at this in September.

  3. Perfect for cruising the Kings Road and Sloane Street but not exactly suitable for a pheasant shoot in Worcestershire.

    • Might look OK parked outside the village shop in Kempsey. I suspect never a dollop of mud will grace it’s wheel arches and certainly not get used on the Landrover Experience down the road at the jolly old, or not so old, castle outside Ledbury.
