Only recently did one come to know about the extensive schedule that was underway at Southern Italy, the scene of the opening sequence of the latest flick in the celebrated James Bond movie franchise: No Time To Die.
Much was said about the exotic, scenic locales that were part of the new James Bond movie shoot, taking place at Matera, one of the choicest holiday destinations in all of Italy.
That Daniel Craig had himself arrived at the scene of the exhilarating, action-packed action sequence drew curious eyeballs from all directions. And now, within hours of the news surrounding the shoot of the new Bond film making headlines, another thing that’s heightened the interest in the upcoming 007 adventure concerns itself with a salubrious, robust machine.
Wondering which one is that, after all? Well, recently some Land Rover Defender pictures were leaked from the shoot of the latest James Bond flick. And truth be told, the Land Rover Defender pictures have generated tremendous interest from the cine universe and the frenzied lot that follows every minute development in the automobile sphere with rich aplomb.
In addition, one can’t be wrong to say that Land Rover has had a pretty hard time to keep the looks of the new powerful SUV- Defender 2020- under the wraps, with the pictures already circulated widely over the World Wide Web.
This development comes at a time when the car is yet to be launched anywhere and is expected to make its star-studded debut sometime later, officially.
But the overall muscular look of the towering machine notwithstanding, it does appear that one of the features of the Land Rover Defender has copped some criticism, to an extent. Wondering what is that?
Well, many are of the view that the lines on the wagon are too rounded for the number plate.
An English leading daily highlighted the aspects of the car that have drawn a critical reception from the fanbase and happened to share the following:
At the front end of the SUV, a set of square headlights are present and sit alongside a set of horizontal air intakes. It’s quite hard to compare this model with the outgoing one from this image, but the front end looks a little narrower and might sit a little lower.
There’s no denying the roundness of the rest of the SUV, but you can certainly see that the old-fashioned design cues have carried over.
That said, the British brand had already released several Land Rover Defender pictures with the shots capturing the car in a testing mode, these snaps are the first of the upcoming off-roader minus any sort of camouflage.
Market insiders are of the view that the much-anticipated offering from the house of Land Rover will be sold in the familiar 91, 110, and 130 configurations. The car will boast of various ranges of the powertrain. And above anything else, the first one to hit the market will be the mid-sized 110.
But in all fairness, as with every Land Rover offering, one can’t wait to anticipate the reaction a distinct fanbase (of the brand) would generate with the arrival of the 2020 Defender.
