Why did they choose the Land Rover Defender?

When working on designing stunt sequences, it's always important to find a vehicle that fits the scene, but it also capable enough to handle what it is put through. They were looking for an unstoppable vehicle, and the Defender fit the bill. It allows the Stunt Coordinator, Lee Morrison, to deal with steep descents, river crossings, and other elements that one has to battle during a movie shoot. The Defender offers 11.5-inches of ground clearance, and even world-class off-road geometry, which gets the Defender 110 amazing approach, departure, and breakover angles. There is even a new Wage program with the Defender that offers amazing fording abilities.

How was the Defender designed for the movie?

In order to get the right look, Land Rover worked closely with Chris Corbould, who is the Special Effects and Action Vehicles Supervisor. They based most of the design on the Defender X model, which featured 20-inch dark finish wheels, professional off-road tires, a Santorini Black exterior, and darkened skid plates. This overall look creates a sleek and spy-like quality, which fits perfectly into the James Bone universe. The Land Rover Defender knows its role, and is able to perform to the best of its abilities, both as a stunt vehicle, and something that James Bond would definitely drive.
