The most recent Bond film, the Spectre, was no stranger to the intense types of action scenes that Hollywood loves to lace its new films with, and among our favorite is the downhill chase scene.
In it, we witnessed Bond and the handful of SUV driving baddies careening down Austrian mountains and while barely holding their Range Rovers stable on the snowy surface.
It took the crew of special effects professionals to pull these scenes off, but Land Rover wants us to know that its vehicles can actually undergo such feats.
To prove it, the talents of Ben Collins were summoned, and the ex Stig being one of the more prominent stunt and the racing drivers in the spotlight of popularity.
Ben Collins was handed the keys to a 510-hp Range Rover Sport and wished luck as the automaker sent him down he Swiss skiing slope known only as Inferno.
According to legend, and only the most insane and talented of skiers dare go down this slope, so that means that Collins must be on the completely different level of mad to make an attempt in the 5,300 pound SUV.
It’s confusing as to why Ben Collins needs all that power when some gradients on the 7,000 foot slope are over 75 percent.
And also important: Land Rover doesn’t want the slow descent using the electronic toys, it’s asking for the edge of your seat run for best time. Fingers crossed that Ben Collins lives to pull off more stunts like these.
