Lot Essay

Since its unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019, the Land Rover Defender has become a modern classic. Reimagined for the 21st century, the Defender blends rugged performance and an iconic look.

Land Rovers have featured in James Bond films for nearly forty years, from Octopussy in 1983 to the new Defender in No Time To Die (2021). For No Time To Die, Land Rover tore up the rulebook by allowing the pre-production new Defender on set months before its global launch.

Land Rover provided ten pre-production Defenders for filming and these were the very first pre-production Defenders to be built at Land Rover’s manufacturing plant in Nitra, Slovakia. This particular vehicle is VIN 007 and is one of the ten used for filming No Time To Die. It was also used in promotional activity in the run-up to the film’s release.

On-screen, three Defenders driven by Safin’s (Rami Malek) henchmen pursue James Bond (Daniel Craig), Madeleine (Léa Seydoux) and their daughter Mathilde (Lisa-Dorrah Sonnet) through a forest close to Madeleine’s childhood home in Norway. The brutal chase climaxes with Bond killing the treacherous Logan Ash (Billy Magnussen) before Madeleine and Mathilde are captured by Safin and taken away by helicopter.

All ten Defenders were used in filming the scene on location in Scotland, Salisbury Plain and Windsor Great Park. The chase sequence in No Time To Die was led by stunt coordinator Lee Morrison, working alongside special effects and action vehicles supervisor Chris Corbould. Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations team worked with Morrison and Corbould to make the necessary aesthetic and stunt safety adaptations including roll cages, under-body protection and motorsport fuel cells.
