Iconic bollywood Actor Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is well known for his passion for exotic cars and already owns plenty of enviable luxury cars in his garage. Now, he has added another luxury SUV to his collection which is the Land Rover Range Rover. The Range Rover is known for being the flagship model of the British brand. The car is priced at a whooping price tag around INR. 2.7 crores. Amitabh got himself a white one.
Rohit Suri, the President of Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL) has said, “Range Rover is the flagship of the Land Rover brand and is built on a legacy which represents the very pinnacle of refinement and British craftsmanship. More specifically, the Autobiography derivatives of Range Rover sit absolutely at the top of the personalisation and luxury ladder. Over the last 45 years, The Range Rover has gained an iconic status in the high-end SUV market across the world and we are thrilled to have the ultimate icon of Indian Cinema, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, as a valuable customer of The Range Rover.”
He is one of the biggest business tycoons of India, chairman of India’s largest and oldest business conglomerate. We have seen him very quiet at difficult times. As it seems he is a very private person, and world knows nothing about his life away from his office.
We are talking about Ratan Naval Tata, the ex chairman of Tata Group. For decades we have seen Mr. Ratan Tata pioneering the Indian automotive industry to a new dimension. It is no surprise, that Ratan Tata has been emotionally attached with Tata Motors. He made the impossible task possible with the Tata Indica and Tata Nano. To put it in a simple way, we can say, Ratan Tata is crazy about cars, in his personal life and professional life as well.
During his tenure as the chairman of Tata Group, he has been spotted many times behind his exotic car’s steering near his residence on South Bombay roads. It is also a known fact that every weekend he takes his cars for a spin. Now, as he has retired from the post, he invests more time for his exotic rides. He is also known as one of the few business tycoons around the world who loves to take the seat behind the steering wheel rather than being seated at the rear and driven by chauffeur. Inside Ratan Tata’s garage there are dozens of beautiful cars and we tried to bring you one look at them.

Jaguar Land Rover cars have been exclusively featured in the latest James Bond film Spectre alongside the Aston Martin DB10. Recently Land Rover recruited British actress and Bond girl Naomi Harris for an exclusive photo shoot featuring her and the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible. Land Rover showcased the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible in the Santa Monica beachside shoot, which gave us the preview of the brand’s first ever luxury compact convertible SUV ahead of its official world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

She has been paired with Land Rover vehicles including the iconic Defender in the Skyfall and the Discovery Sport in the Spectre. Commenting on the event of photo shoot with Range Rover Evoque Convertible she said, "I was so impressed by the design of this car; it’s like nothing I’ve seen on the road before and is so sleek! I love the fact that it is just as much at home driving down the Pacific Coast Highway in LA, as it is off-road in the British Countryside".

Three Spectre cars showcased in the event were – a Jaguar C-X75, which is the vehicle of choice for Mr. Hinx played by none other than the WWE Superstar Dave Bautista, who is the henchman of the villain in the movie, an extensively modified Land Rover Defender and a Range Rover Sport SVR. We have seen all these vehicles in the trailer teasers and the making videos of the latest Bond movie.
The Jaguar C-X75 is a sports car concept, which was first showcased at 2010 Paris Motor Show, but ultimately abandoned by Jaguar, for some unknown reason. In the movie Spectre, we have seen Mr. Hinx, played by famous actor David Bautista, chasing Bonds Aston Martin DB10 in this stunningly gorgeous and powerful car painted in Orange (Read and watch it here). In some other videos we have seen The Range Rover Sport SVR and two absolutely rugged looking Land Rover Defenders in a chasing scene, which were shot in Austrian Alps. In the previous Bond movie Skyfall, we have seen Naomie Harris aka Eve Monepenny driving a rugged looking Land Rover Defender during the initial action sequences.
Although various automobile manufacturers are grabbing attention of the automotive world in the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, but Jaguar Land Rover definitely steal away all the limelight with this showcase event at Palatial Thurn und Taxisin Frankfurt. Incidentally, this was the first time these spectacular vehicles were shown at some public event. After all, these are no ordinary cars; these are bespoke cars of the latest James Bond movie. Present in the event were David Bautista, who played a villainous role in the movie, and Naomie Harris, who is portraying the character of Eve Moneypenny.

The reports also mention that the movie production team and the stars have already finished filming with the modified Land Rover Defenders & Range Rover Sport SVR in Austria. Now we have already showed you what the Land Rover SVR is already capable of doing, while the Land Rover defender Big Foot has been fitted with huge 37 inch diameter off road tyres and this SUV was designed entirely by Jaguar’s special operations for tackling extreme terrain. Besides just the huge off road tyres the Defender big foot also gets bespoke suspension and enhanced body protection.

Quite honestly I can hardly wait for the movie to hit the theatres especially after hearing what this movie is bringing for us. The movie Spectre will be releasing on 6th November 2015 and if you want to see some cool action and hottest cars then mark the date.
According to the reports online apparently 5 of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV’s were stolen in Germany while they were being transported to the filming location in Alps. These Range Rover Sport SUV’s were specially designed by the specialist of the Land Rover Training Centre Neuss near Dusseldorf for the “Spectre” movie. Now adding more insult to the injury is the fact that apart from these 5 RR SUV’s which were being transported to the filming location in Alps there were 4 other cars which too were kept for the filming purpose also got stolen at the same time. Even the German Law Enforcement teams were unable to trace those persons who are behind this crime.
According to the reports a total of 9 cars worth around 800,000 Euros (around INR. 60, 686760) were stolen which is definitely is a big loss for the production team of the new upcoming Bond movie “Spectre”. Only previous week we reported about the new James Bond movie which is set for release in the month of October 2015 in UK and the new car that Daniel Craig A.K.A Mr. Bond will be using in this movie, the new car that MR. Bond will be using in the movie has been specially designed by Aston Martin and it is called the DB10 (Click here to learn more about the news).
Coming back to the story, this is definitely a big loss for the production team of Mr. Bond’s new movie “Spectre” because their movie shoot also have been delayed because of the unavailability of cars. Unfortunately the car theft is a Global problem and it is really a huge concern for every auto manufacturer because the cars still gets easily stolen even after securing their products with some of the most advanced anti theft technologies onboard.
Now this is perhaps the biggest news of the day for all the adventure enthusiasts of the World because believe it or not Bear Grylls who is the renowned British adventurer has joined the Land Rover as their long term global ambassador.

And who else could have been the person to support Land Rover’s activity at a global level and play an integral part in the global launch of the upcoming Discover Sport which will be unveiled infront of the World on 3rd September than this person.
