The somewhat undercover Jaguar XF will make its big-screen debut in a thrilling chase sequence in the new James Bond film No Time To Die, which hits South African cinemas on 1 October 2021. 

Filmed in Matera, Southern Italy, two XF saloons weave through the narrow, twisting city streets, driving across piazzas and down cobbled steps in pursuit of James Bond. 

Both XFs feature Jaguar’s all-wheel drive system with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, which delivered incredible levels of traction on the low-grip surfaces as No Time To Die’s henchmen demonstrate that no street is too small and no corner too tight. The saloon’s lightweight aluminium-intensive architecture and advanced suspension design enable exceptional handling and agility together outstanding ride, comfort and refinement. 

“The Jaguar XF was an exciting choice for this high-intensity car sequence,” said Chris Corbould, No Time To Die’s special effects and action vehicle supervisor, said. “We always look to push the boundaries to extreme limits in our stunts, and this extends to the capabilities of the vehicles too. There is no compromise with this particular scene. There were only inches to spare in the narrow alleyways and with no margin for error, the XF shows its performance and driving dynamics.”

The Jaguar XF saloon is priced from R1,030,000 in South Africa.
