James Bond will once again be driving an Aston Martin, but the bad guys in the upcoming 007 flick SPECTRE will have some pretty sweet rides, too.
Several of the film’s cast members showed up at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany this week to show off the new vehicles that will carry the baddies when SPECTRE hits theaters in November. In the photo above, Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) shares the spotlight with the sleek (and rare!) Jaguar C-X75, a million-dollar-plus electric hybrid car that the luxury automaker decided not to produce for the public a few years ago. Back in 2013 — in an article begging Jaguar to reconsider — Road and Track reported that only five prototypes existed of the car, which had 900 horsepower total, could reach 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, and had a top speed of over 200 mph. This week, Jalopnik reported that five stripped-down stunt versions of the C-X75 were created for the SPECTRE shoot, all of which had a more earthbound 575 horsepower.

Whether or not the public ever gets its hands on the C-X75, the super-fast car is a nifty advertisement for Jaguar. In SPECTRE, Dave Bautista — who plays the enforcer Mr. Hinx — will sit behind the wheel and steer the car through Rome. Parts of that scene can be seen in the video below:
Also on display was the Range Rover Sport SVR, a sports-utility vehicle that’s built like a tank, but can also burn rubber. No word yet on how that car will be used, but given that they filmed parts of the movie in the Alps, the theory here is that it might get to tackle some rocky terrain. In the photo below, Harris and Bautista pose in front of the beast, which looks like it’s ready to drive into the night.
SPECTRE — which also stars Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, and Stephanie Sigman — hits theaters on Nov. 6.
