Land Rover Defenders used in SkyFall on display

22 October, 2012

Some of the Land Rover Defenders which were used in the filming of the latest Bond movie, SkyFall have been returned to Land Rover, and will go on display this weekend (October 27 and 28) at a free exhibition at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden.

Land Rover technician, Dave Larkin, reviews the surviving Land Rover Defenders used in the opening sequence of SkyFall as they arrive at Land Rover HQ, bullet holes, dents and all. Twelve identical Defenders were used to film the opening stunt sequence, when Bond girl, Naomie Harris drives a Defender double-cab pick-up during a classic Bond chase. Not all twelve survived the filming but those that did have been returned by Pinewood Studios to Land Rover. Albeit minus a few headlights and windscreens but including some new exterior features in scrapes, bumps and bruises.

Great to see the vehicles we love getting so much coverage in an iconic British film franchise that has such global appeal. Who knows, you could be seeing Allmakes 4×4 splattered across one of the vehicles in the next installment, I’m sure Bond wouldn’t mind!
