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.

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 off roading capability of the Discovery Sport Dynamic is heightened by the introduction of All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) for 2016. ATPC is an advanced system which enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed during off road driving. Developed by the Land Rover’s all terrain specialists, ATPC functions similarly to a cruise control system, and it is operational between 2 kmph and 30 kmph. The ATPC system adapts the vehicle’s behaviour according to the terrain, allowing even the novice users the control of an expert off road driver. ATPC also sports a dedicated Launch feature, which allows the vehicle to pull away smoothly and easily, even on critically low friction surfaces like ice, snow or wet grass.
