Skyfall opens with a defender/audi chase scene

Photos: http://www.motortrend.com/features/c...rivers/photos/

Video with a few short clips from the scene:

The movie itself was mediocre but I think every current LR model was in the movie at some point, which made watching it worth-while.

Personally, I thought Skyfall rocked... and seems there's usually a Defender somewhere in the 007 films and it didn't disappoint in that regard either.

I actually squealed (in pain? sadness?) when the first Defender mirror got knocked off...

(But, I gotta give credit to the sassy lassie's response regarding the second mirror. )

I thought it was good... A lot darker than any other Bond film. Probably middle of the pack, not the best, but far from the worst.

I thought it was great. The audience applauded when the DB5 came out.

Yep Berkshire Land Rover got the contract to provide the lhd trucks for the film and in the contract he had the option to buy back the ones that weren'y destroyed. Think there were 15 of them.

Trey and I liked the film, it wasn't as "over the top" as many have been.

When my wife saw the double cab she turned to me and said "That's cute. If it was automatic I'd drive that". Killing me.
