The new Jaguar XF Saloon will demonstrate its performance and exhilarating driving dynamics in a nail-biting chase sequence in the new James Bond film ‘No Time To Die‘ which is set to be released in South African cinemas from October 1, 2021.
According to Motorpress, the movie is filmed in Matera, Southern Italy where two saloons speed through the narrow and twisted city streets, driving across piazzas and down cobbled steps in pursuit of James Bond.
Both XF derivatives feature Jaguar’s all-wheel-drive (AWD) system with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, which delivered outstanding levels of traction on low-grip surfaces as it is demonstrated that no street is too narrow and no corner too tight.
The model’s lightweight aluminium-intensive architecture and advanced suspension design enables exceptional handling and agility all together with a significant ride, comfort and refinement.
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 with no margin for error, the XF shows its performance and driving dynamics.”
Anna Gallagher, Jaguar Brand Director, said: “The Jaguar XF is a car designed to tackle any journey with an unrivalled 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 its No Time To Die chase sequences, or the bustling streets of London – the XF really is a car for every occasion.”
The Jaguar XF saloon is priced from R1,030,000 in South Africa. To configure yours online or book a test drive, visit buildyour.jaguar.co.za.
