Bond Villain Cars Prove It's Good to be Bad

If we could figure out how to visually represent the James Bond theme music, that’s what we would put here. Why? Because the newest Bond film is getting ready to take the stage, and in it are a whole group of cars that look positively tremendous. Especially considering the three seen here are made for villains. We’ve already shown you Bond’s new Aston Martin DB10. That car that was built specifically for the film, although, we’re sure that some styling cues will look toward the future of Aston Martin. But what the movie hasn’t shown us were the cars that the villains will be driving. Until now.

The first being the new Range Rover Sport, which, according to the movies production office, has been heavily modified by JLR’s Special Operations Division. It features the new 542-horsepower, 501 lb-ft of torque, supercharged V8 from the Range Rover Sport SVR, and a host of suspension modifications that allow the SUV much more travel than stock. The second will be the classic Land Rover Defender, which, along with the Sport above, also received the new supercharged V8. However, the Defender has been much more thoroughly modified with 37” tires, a bespoke suspension system, and enhanced body protection. Essentially, JLR’s Special Operations made the car a tank to endure the perils that usually befall Bond’s enemies.

Now, if that moniker rings a bell, it’s because the C-X75 was a concept car that was shown off to the public a few years ago. It was breathtaking, and according to the few journalists that had the chance to get behind the wheel of the prototype, utterly bonkers. However, at the last minute, Jaguar pulled the plug on the concept and it never made it to production. While the C-X75 concept was originally a hybrid hypercar, built with a staggering amount of technology, rumors are circulating that Jaguar ripped out all the fancy electronics and hybrid drivetrain, and slapped in the now ubiquitous supercharged V8 from the F-Type R. Despite the fact that the V8 will sound terrific in theaters, and full of menace, we would have liked to have seen the hybrid drivetrain make it to the theaters. The noise it made at full throttle sounded more like a racecar than a road car.

From the looks of it, it really is good to be bad. _____________________________________ Click Here to Read the Original Article on BoldRide
