‘James Bond Car’ 1998 XKR to visit Bo’ness

With less than a week to go to our 2nd Scottish National Day, we have managed to secure thanks to the Jaguar and Daimler Heritage Trust, the visit of the villan’s 1998 XKR from the James Bond film “Die another day”.

The film was released in 2002 and the car was the car of Zao, the main villan., played by Rick Yune. The car was equipped with a Gatling gun mounted centrally behind the seats, while further armaments included missiles fired through the front grille, rocket launchers in the doors and mortar bombs in the boot.

There were eight Jaguar XKR cars used in filming. Half of these were standard cars, the rest were rather more special as they were built with a four-wheel drive chassis. All were finished in the same metallic light green that was used for the Jaguar Racing Formula One Grand Prix cars.

The reason it was necessary to re-build both the Jaguar, and Bond’s Aston Martin, with four wheel drive, is that these cars featured in one of the most amazing sequences in the film, a dramatic car chase on ice, filmed on location in Iceland in early 2002.

The pictures below show this amazing car. So come along to Bo’ness to see for yourself.
