The Jaguar That The Villain Will Drive In The New Bond Movie Is Terrifyingly Awesome

Jaguar is taking their "Good to be Bad" marketing campaign to the next level. The English automaker's sinister C-X75 supercar concept will be the vehicle of choice for the villain in the upcoming James Bond flick "Spectre," Autocar reports.

The Jag C-X75 will face off against Bond's brand new Aston Martin DB10 that was commissioned specially for the 24th installment in the film series.

According to the automotive publication, sources "involved with the project" report that the supercar concept is undergoing modifications for the upcoming film. This includes the removal of the C-X75's 800 horsepower hybrid powertrain. In its place will be Jaguar's trusty 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine, from the company's phenomenal F-Type sports car.

Looks like every other "super" sports car on the planet, but it's still pretty cool. I prefer Bond's Aston Martin, though it looks a little dated, it still looks like a modern Aston Martin, which is a good thing to my eyes.

The real question is: Will Jaguar (or Bond producers) entice Christoph Waltz to appear in character in an upcoming Jaguar commercial? ;)

Of course, he's not British like the others (Kingsley, Strong & Hiddleston) in the Jaguar USA ads... But they can expand their "It's good to be bad" campaign to cover the nemesis of Britain's super-spy...

I can't get through Bond movies. I still don't get the plot of Die Another Day, probably because it, like all other Bond movies, only loosely has one worth paying attention to.

To be fair, Die Another Day is often listed as one of the 3 or 4 worst Bond films by fans (with the absolute worst theme song)... The only thing it was good for was to give Eon Productions the idea to reboot the franchise with the excellent Casino Royale with Daniel Craig as a newly minted 007, after a 4 year hiatus.

The 3 Craig films have been well received, with very "realistic", and relatively easy to follow plots that avoid some of the over-the-top silliness that sometimes leaked into the series (Moonraker, A View To A Kill, Die Another Day). The Craig films have very little in common with the earlier film incarnations of the Bond character.

I look forward to Spectre. Casting Craig as the "Brute in a tailored suit" & always brilliant Bond has convincingly brought the franchise into the 21st Century. The introduction of Ralph Fiennes in Skyfall, who will return as "M", Bond's superior, and the addition of Christoph Waltz to the cast has made it that much more appealing to me.

"Die Another Day" was an odd film, but it wasn't as bad as most Bond fans think it is.
But yeah, the theme song was ... different.

The 3 reboot films with Daniel Craig have breathed some fresh air into the franchise.
Casino Royale sets the tone. Quantum of Solace was... odd... but certainly wasn't bad. Skyfall sets the standard by which all subsequent Bond films will be judged. It also set the record for highest grossing Bond film (adjusted for inflation), topping Thunderball.

SPECTRE is bringing in the same staff from Skyfall, so expectations are quite high!! I will miss Judi Dench tho!!
