The new Land Rover Defender has been snapped on the set of the new James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’ without camouflage, just weeks before its debut.
It’s surprising it hasn’t happened so far, but with just a week or so to go before the new Land Rover Defender is due to be properly revealed it’s been snapped undisguised on the set of the new James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’.
We’ve seen endless photos of the new Defender covered in Land Rover camouflage, and we’ve seen a graphic of the Defender from its instrument cluster. But now we get the real deal.
As we already know, the Defender’s boxy shape remains, but the front view is much more modern Land Rover mainstream, the bonnet appears to have treadplates and there’s a bit of a bulge going on on the bonnet.
Down the side the window arrangement looks old school Defender in concept, there appears to be plenty of ground clearance and plenty of wheel travel judging from the space above the wheels.

I’m not going to get in trouble for this — because it’s all over #facebook at the moment! Here is what looks like the first uncovered #defender2020 — straight (apparently) from the film set of the new #bond movie! Makes sense! A few things come to mind. Firstly, the winch is excellent. Secondly, the alpine windows are still there! Thirdly, the rear passenger door looks massive — you’ll never open that in a Tesco car park! Fourthly, there seems to be quite a bit of wheel clearance (though it’s unknown if this is standard height, off road height, or on coils!). Fifthly, checker on the bonnet (yes, the bonnet is a funny shape and there is no real wing to speak of). Sixthly, I’m not sure about the mirrors at all. Seventhly…. well, this could clearly go on a bit! #landroverdefender #allnewdefender #landroverdefender #landrover #thebest4x4xfar #landrovertheworldover #landroverworld #bignews #didntmakefrankfurt #someonesheadwillrollforthis #spyshot #spyfilm #jamesbondfilmset #allnewdefender2020 #newdefender #newdefendernews #newlandroverdefender #defender #landroverdefender #landroverdefender110 #defender110
It’s probably not what Land Rover want us to think, but there’s is more than a passing resemblance to the original DC100 Concept Land Rover rolled out an age ago as the first look at the direction they were heading in with the new Land Rover, only to subsequently say it wasn’t the right road to travel after all.
Expect more details to come from Land Rover soon.
