Jaguar XF has made its debut in the recent James Bond flick No Time To Die which was released on September 30, 2021, in India. The saloon will feature in a thrilling chase sequence on the streets of Matera in southern Italy. In the new twenty-fifth 007 film, two units of Jaguar XF will be seen cruising through the narrow and twisting city streets while driving across piazzas and down cobbled steps in pursuit of James Bond. The sedan is based on a lightweight aluminium-intensive architecture while powered by the Ingenium range of petrol and diesel engines.
Chris Corbould, No Time To Die’s special effects and action vehicle supervisor, said: “The Jaguar XF was an exciting choice for this high-intensity car sequence. We always look to push the boundaries to extreme limits in our stunts, and this extends to the capabilities of the vehicles too. There is no compromise with this particular scene. There were only inches to spare in the narrow alleyways and no margin for error, the XF shows its performance and driving dynamics.” Jaguar XF boasts of Active Noise Cancellation and Cabin Air Ionisation technology as standard. In addition, it comes with an 11.4-inch HD touchscreen with JLR’s Pivi Pro infotainment system which debuted with the Land Rover Defender.
Anna Gallagher, Jaguar Brand Director, said: ““The Jaguar XF is a car designed to tackle any journey with an unrivaled balance of luxury, comfort and refinement. Whether it’s a high-speed pursuit through twisting streets and piazzas of Southern Italy, where the car filmed it’s No Time To Die chase sequences, or the bustling streets of London – the XF really is a car for every occasion.” No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for the fifth and final time as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007. The film will be released in cinemas from September 30 2021 in the UK through Universal Pictures International and in the US on October 8, 2021.
