Spectre Defenders badged "SVX"

So I saw a picture somewhere (can't think where) and I spotted in the film a couple of times that the defenders used in Spectre had proper 'SVX' badges on the rear, in the same style as the SVR Range Rover ones.

It seems to me that Land Rover wouldn't design and produce a whole new badge just to be glimpsed in a film and not even shown in publicity shots... Therefore id suggest that an SVX defender (or discovery, Range Rover too?) is in the pipeline.

Presumably not the current defender (although we'd all love that!) but the new one... So hopefully it will still be a rough and ready off-road animal in at least one variant! Cheers, David

Nice one to start! Rolling with laughter Bow down

They could have just bought a silver Gucci style silver SVX badge or two for minimal cost from E-Bay for maximum effect. With either 8 or 9 special Astons built for the film commissioning a badge or two would have been pennies or Land Rover fell over themselves to supply them free perhaps?

Hi David,

I think they might, actually. I met the boyfriend of a girl who works in the 'special vehicles' department and was responsible for a lot of the stuff for the film and apparently a lot of the bits and bobs considered (not necessarily used) were one offs.

When I waxed lyrical about how much I liked the Spectre version, he said the response had been hugely positive from all fans. Interestingly he asked what I liked most and I said the rope over the bonnet (sad, I know) and he said that was the item most requested!! Thumbs Up . Yes, I will be slinging one on my bonnet in the future.... Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Remember these were designed by LR SV just for the movie, i think every part would be thought about very carefully. Maybe they wanted a badge that wasnt associated with anything else but was still similar?

The illegitimate son's partner of the cleaning lady who works nights in the factory canteen has it on good authority that everyone who owns a Defender on 20th January 2016 will be given such a badge free-gratis as a parting goodwill gesture by JLR.....apparently?

Haha nice one guys, all I'm saying is that I can certainly see the SVX badge appearing in the future...! Most likely on a defender but I guess it could be on any, kind of like how Jeep have 'trail rated' versions of their cars. ( sorry to mention that here ) Cheers, David
