The Land Rover Defender came in to existence in the 1980’s but it has a heritage that began way back in 1948 with the launch of the first Land Rover that was designed by Maurice Wilks.
Earlier called the ‘Ninety’ and ‘One Ten’, this refined SUV called the Defender still continues to appeal to the public even after passage of 70 years. It is said that over three-quarters of the over 20 lakh Landy’s (nick-name for a Land Rover) sold still continues to be used by its owners. No other SUV’s can come so nearer to this record. Even Queen Elizabeth used one.
This vehicle from the 2001 Paramount Pictures movie called ‘Tomb Raider’ starring Angelina Jolie (as Lara Croft) is one of the three Defender’s One Ten HCPU model that was specially modified by in-house Land Rover specialists for the movie.
With a 4-litre V8 engine that gave a power output of 184 hp and having an automatic transmission, the Defender was given several aluminium tread plates and a ‘heritage’ front grille (a type of chequered patterned grille) with four large sized Safari headlights.
For the character (Lara Croft) there were several other accessories fitted in such as GSM telephone dashboard notebook computer, GPS navigation system, winches provided on all the three sides, etc.
