DEFENDER MAKES ITS ON-SCREEN DEBUT IN 'NO TIME TO DIE'
ONE OF THREE DEFENDERS FROM THE FILM WILL BE ON-DISPLAY AT WILLIAMS LAND ROVER.
Land Rover Defender makes its spectacular on screen debut in the new long awaited James Bond film, No Time To Die, which releases in cinemas from 30th September. The Defender features in some of the films most iconic scenes.
The vehicle, which sets new standards for toughness and capability, was truly pushed to its limits in the latest Bond film by the film's stunt team and features in some of the film's most iconic scenes.
One of the three Defender's (pictured below) featured in the film will be at Williams Land Rover in Manchester from 8th October – 28th October. Williams is the only retail centre in the North where the original vehicle from the blockbuster movie will be on display.
Without an engine and transported in its original state the movie set, the vehicle will appear in its authentic battered and bruised state after featuring in one of the most high octane, thrilling car chases ever filmed by the stunt team involved.

Gary Nickson, Head of Business at Williams Land Rover, said “To have one of the Defenders that appears in the long-awaited James Bond movie here on display will be a meeting of great British brands and a unique celebration of Land Rover’s 38-year association with James Bond not far from Daniel Craig’s birthplace in the North West – a fitting legacy as he appears in his fifth and final film for the franchise.”
No Time to Die features three Defenders, two Range Rover Sport SVRs, a Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Series III, as part of the long-standing relationship of Land Rover with James Bond films, which began in 1983 when a Range Rover Convertible appeared in Octopussy. Most recently, in 2015 the Range Rover Sport starred in a major action sequence in SPECTRE. To celebrate the latest movie, Land Rover has launched a limited-edition Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition (pictured below) with only 300 available worldwide.
