Landrover Defender 110 Xtreme


2001 June: Land Rover is hoping to make some sales of Land Rover Defenders out of the movie `Tomb Raider' starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft and opening on 21 June (.au).

Lara Croft drives a topless V8 Land Rover Defender high capacity pickup (HCPU) with loads of special expedition gear.


The bad guy drives a Range Rover - a definite trend in movies.

Australians will be able to buy a limited edition Defender V Wagon Td5 Extreme `TR' in Bonatti Grey - Lara's favourite car colour - for 49,990 + orc. Well, the Defender is seen in a better light than the Jeep in `Breakdown' which was on the box recently. The `TR' features "roof rack, rear ladder, headlamp protectors, 2×roof mounted & 2×front mounted spot lights, bull bar, chequer plate bonnet, wing top & support strip protector kit, chequer plate side-rails, raised air intake, sump guard and windscreen washer guard" [-LR].


2001 Victorian 4WD Show: LandRover Defender 110 Xtreme has the sophisticated transmission and brake electronics from the current Discovery: ABS and traction control as well as the centre differential lock (the Disco' still has the lock in the transfer case but no switch).

The engine is the Td5 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder, turbo charged and intercooled, "common rail" diesel. The Defender Xtreme is even fitted with 5-spoke alloy wheels.
