It’s certainly more suited to the Scottish Highlands than a DB5. After trashing Moneypenny’s Defender wing mirrors in the opening scenes of Skyfall, Daniel Craig is back behind the wheels of a Land Rover – starring as 007 for the launch of the new Range Rover sport. GQ’s Jason Barlow attended the star-studded event in New York late last month and had the chance to go behind the scenes on the shoot – and talk to Craig about his latest role. As for what it’s like to drive? “I sadly couldn’t get it too quick out there on the streets,” says Craig, “But I’d like to push it a little bit, have a bit more fun.”

Manhattan came to a standstill Tuesday night as James Bond star Daniel Craig took the new Range Rover Sport for a dramatic drive through the streets of New York.

In a scene reminiscent of a Hollywood blockbuster, the British actor delivered the luxury vehicle to a star-studded premiere at Skylight on 8th Avenue.

After negotiating the closed-off streets, an unshaken and unstirred Craig joined supermodel Yasmin Le Bon, Olympian Zara Phillips and designer Jade Jagger at a packed launch party.

The drive was filmed as part of a short film The Delivery by acclaimed director Jonathan P. B. Taylor, broadcast live from the launch event. It was also the first time the British car manufacturer has staged a global reveal live on the street of its biggest market.
The new Range Rover Sport will go on sale in summer 2013. Prices are yet to be announced.

Mr. Bond reportedly earned 1M USD for his appearance during the2014 Range Rover Sportlaunch this week at the New York Auto Show.

Sources have told New York Post that Daniel Craig earned a cool one million dollars for his brief appearance during the launch of the new Range Rover Sport, even though he didn’t give a speech. He drove the car to the venue, entered the stage and then walked next to a line of photographers before disappearing from the scene.

A Land Rover representative said “we won’t comment on our relationship with Mr. Craig beyond confirming that Land Rover supports the charity S.A.F.E., of which the actor is a patron, and will continue its charitable efforts with a vehicle donation later this year.

Daniel Craig`s `Quantum of Solace` producer Barbara Broccoli will reportedly be increasing the incentives for the star to keep him in the iconic film role of `James Bond`. The 52-year-old producer`s has claimed that the next installment of the `007` series, whose director Sam Mendes has quit, will be the hardest to make, the Daily Express reported.

The daughter of the late Bond producer Albert R “Cubby” Broccoli said in an interview with Day and Night News that she`s determined to keep Craig in his tuxedo for the next few years. She has clearly said that she will not let the 45-year-old actor go anywhere and expressed sadness over Mendes` departure from the franchise following the award-winning ` Skyfall `.

Broccoli, who co-produces the films with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, explained that they do not want to disappoint the fans, that have kept them going all these years and they always try to make films that will please them so the pressure is on even more so than ever. She further added that she was thrilled that the famous spy was an integral part of the Olympics last year, when Craig appeared in the opening ceremony alongside Her Majesty the Queen.
