4 x 4 Australia - - Event -

DID YOU know, ac­cord­ing to Rover­works web­site, there are more than 1781 Land Rovers used in movies, TV se­ries and mu­sic videos? The De­fender be­ing the most com­monly used model in TV se­ries and fea­ture films. Mean­while, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have more ap­pear­ances in mu­sic videos than all other lux­ury SUVS.

In 1995, the movie Judge Dredd show­cased a cus­tomised Land Rover called a City CAB. Thirty-one City CABS were built for the movie, based around the 101 For­ward Con­trol chas­sis orig­i­nally man­u­fac­tured in the 1970s for the British Army. And while James Bond liked his As­ton Martins, he also has a soft spot for Landies. He drove a De­fender in Casino Royale and Spec­tre. Range Rover also made ap­pear­ances in Oc­to­pussy, The Liv­ing Day­lights, To­mor­row Never Dies, Casino Royale and Quan­tum of So­lace.

And who could for­get Lara Croft driv­ing a De­fender TD5 110 in Tomb Raider?
