Bond villain car, the Jaguar C-X75 to go on display at Autosport International 2016

Visitors to Autosport International this January will be able to get close to one of the cars from the 24th James Bond adventure SPECTRE.

Two Jaguar C-X75s, driven on screen by villain Hinx, played by Dave Bautista, will be on display at the NEC.

Specially-prepared for SPECTRE, the C-X75 was provided by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations in collaboration with development partner Williams Advanced Engineering.

Two cars used in filming will be present at the NEC from 14-17 January. A demonstration of one of the specially-prepared stunt cars will take place in the Live Action Arena. A must see for any movie or car enthusiast.

For a more detailed view, a second static car – one of the ‘hero’ models used for close-ups in SPECTRE – will be on display at the Williams stage area, another of the star attractions at Autosport International 2016.

The focal point will be a revamped Autosport Stage, which will feature the eight-metre-tall Williams Martini Racing motorhome constructed immediately next to it – the first time it has been erected outside of a racing circuit.

Eight of Williams’ most historically-significant Formula One cars will be on show, including the FW18 which Damon Hill OBE drove to the 1996 Drivers’ Championship title. Hill will be present at Autosport International, celebrating the 20th anniversary of this victory. He will be joined by many other famous faces from Williams.
