The 007 Spectre Land Rover is available - complete with Lightforce lights!

We were thrilled to discover that one of the Land Rovers used in 2015’s Bond film, Spectre, kitted out with Lightforce driving lights, is up for auction at Sotheby’s in London on September 6th! Who wouldn’t want one of these?

Bond villini BlofeldLet’s say you are a world class super-villain and you need to hunt down James Bond. How are you going to kit out your minion’s vehicle? With the cheap stuff, or the best stuff?  When Ernst Stavro Blofeld wanted his minions to defeat James Bond in Spectre, he set them up with tools capable of the task. Naturally, they needed a beast of a vehicle to chase him down – and it has to look cool too.

The rope adds a little something - but we think the lights finish this vehicle off perfectly. The Land Rover Defender was sent to Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations and built into the toughest, coolest, most villainous vehicle around for 2015’s Bond flick, Spectre. From 37-inch tyres to external roll-cage – there are two things these designers wanted to include in every detail of this build: Toughness and class. That’s why the lights they used on the vehicles were made by Lightforce.

The film was made in 2015, so our (sadly, discontinued) LED 180s were used – but we reckon if it was 2017 Ernst would be going for the HTX Hybrid, or Genesis LED (and maybe would’ve come out victorious because of it!).

The HTX light combines 20 LEDs with 80 watts of output to provide an instant flood beam, with a 70 watt HID (high-intensity discharge) bulb within a 170 mm reflector for long distance viewing. Together the two systems provide 8,400 effective lumens of visibility for driving in all conditions. We think Ernst would be happy with that!

Alternatively, the Genesis LED would ensure that Ernst would be able to keep in touch with his minions, because not only does the Genesis have with an output of 1053m @ 1 LUX, but the inclusion of CISPR25 complaint reduced radio frequency interference technology!  If the auction for the Land Rover ends up a little out of your price range, you can still get one of the best pieces of the action by checking out our product page.
