This is 1 of just 10 Land Rover Defender ‘SVX Concept’ models or more commonly known as ‘Spectre Defenders’ ever built for the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, today our example is 1 of only 7 cars used in the film that still survives today.
Producers of Sony Pictures appointed Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations to supply them with a total of 10 Defenders and transform them from the regular Crew-Cab 110s into an off-road Hollywood Villain! Tuned by non-other than Land Rovers famed racing specialists Bowler it comes as no surprise that this example we have available really is the Monster Defender. With huge 37″Maxis Trepador tyres bolted directly on Beadlock alloy wheels, you might say that this was the most obvious part of the Defenders transformation. However, to provide genuine off-road credential, Bowler uprated the suspension with rose joints and Bilstein rally dampers, with a roll cage that runs both internally and externally. Further improvements in the engine bay increase power from 120bhp to 185bhp. The classic Defender interior is given more dominance through the addition of front Recaro sports seats with 4-point harnesses.
The Spectre Defender we have here has been U.K. road registered since filming ended, where it was used only in drive-by scenes. It is fresh from a service and comes complete with its car cover, original invoice and a range of papers documenting filming schedules along with photos of this car’s actual appearance in the film.
Not all of the Spectre Defenders survive today and the ones that do are not all road registered. This is a very rare opportunity to own what is classed as ‘the ultimate Defender!’ and would not only be just a very cool addition to any collection but extremely practical this winter!
