Land Rover Defender SVX Spectre

If you´re a fan of 007 you´ve probably seen Spectre, the 24th instalment in the James Bond film series, and you´ll surely remember the memorable, death-defying car chase scene in the Austrian Alps featuring some beastly Land Rover Defenders. Well, for your information, just ten examples of the off-road monster were built by Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations for the production of Spectre, and the one featured here is going up for auction! The street-legal beast was tweaked and enhanced by famous Land Rover tuning company Bowler to make it worthy of a Bond’s villain. The team ramped the power, added new suspension, added a full roll cage, and fitted huge 37-inch tyres. It has only 14.5 miles on its odometer, comes with filming documentation, and is likely going to fetch a very high price when it goes under the hammer in September.
