The new Defender from car manufacturer Land Rover is ready to dish out all the pain and take the punches as well. James Bond better get ready to learn how to operate or run away from this beast.

The Land Rover Defender gets a very nice spot in the up-and-coming James Bond film titled No Time to Die. For the extra British flair, it's accompanied by Triumph motorcycles to inspire that sinister feel of the bad guys who are out to chase the antagonist to the ends of the earth. Here is the advertisement for you to see if you haven't already:

How They Shot the Commercial

Lee Morrison coordinated the short clip, and Chris Corbould was in charge of special effects and action vehicles on the scene. The stunt driver used in the scene is racecar driver Jessica Hawkins.

This is all speculation as of now until we receive more news. However, the clip features a chase sequence near a villain's hideout. Three Defenders and three dirt bikes leap into action through a dreary and moot environment with real enthusiasm. The trucks tear through grass and mud, hit trees, splash on creek water, and finally flip over and keep running. There is also a lot of air time showcased, and people who are considered enthusiasts will appreciate the fact that jump testing is part of their durability test, along with wear and tear.
