Jaguar XKR driven by Zao
Owned by Zao
Featured In Die Another Day (2002)
For one of the very few times in a Bond film, Zao's Jaguar XKR is on par with Bond's Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. While Bond's Aston Martin contains a variety of gadgetry, Zao takes the lead in his Jaguar that is fitted with a host of different weaponry.
In an exiting chase across the frozen wastes of Iceland, Bond and Zao battle it out in perhaps one of the best car chases seen in a Bond film. Zao does battle with Bond using a thermal imaging system allowing him to track the Aston Martin when its using its adaptive camouflage. This quickly malfunctions after Zao pumps rounds into the Aston using the Gattling Gun that pops up in the back of the car. Armed with mini-missiles hidden under the front grille, rockets hidden in the doors and high explosive mortar bombs launched from the boot, Bond meets his match with the Jaguar XKR.
The chase continues into Gustav Graves' flooding ice palace, where it appears Bond is beaten when he is trapped high above in the palace. Using another feature of the Jaguar, Zao activates a metal ramming device, in a hope to send Bond's Aston Martin flying into the lake below. However, Bond manages to activate the now restored adaptive camouflage, engage spikes in the Aston's tyres for more traction and drives up the wall, sending Zao driving straight into the lake below. §
