The next-generation Land Rover Defender has been snapped in all its glory on the set of the latest James Bond film.

Posted on Instagram and published on Jalopnik, the pictures reveal what we were expecting: the new Defender will be a more modern take on the classic, boxy formula, heavily inspired by the DC100 concept.

There are plenty of classic Defender cues on board, there's no doubt about it, but there are swollen wheel arches, a slightly rounded edge to the roof, and softer corners to the bonnet.

Compared to our previous leaks, the Bond car has blacked-out detailing on the front-end and a winch. Whether they're production-spec or specifically for the film remains to be seen.

We also know there will be three body styles offered in the new Defender range: the 90, 110 and 130. Expect to see the 110 in October with five-, six- and seven-seat option, along with a choice of six engines. All drivetrains come standard with all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission.

In the UK, the new Defender will be available in Standard, S, SE, HSE and X trim lines.

Entry-level models will come equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, fabric seats with eight-way electric adjustment up front, a 140W six-speaker sound system, a 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and 7.0-inch multifunction display.

Top-spec models gain 16-way electric seat adjustment, leather upholstery, a 14-speaker 740W Meridian sound system, 20-inch alloy wheels, matrix LED headlamps, and a 12.0-inch digital instrumentation screen.
