[ February 24th 2001 ]

A first look at Angelina Jolie's Land Rover Defender, which will soon be transporting the Lara Croft star across the rugged terrain of Siberia and the humid Cambodia Jungles in Paramount Pictures highly anticipated Tomb Raider movie. Lara Croft's V-8 powered grey Bonatti Land Rover has been modified by designers to cater for maximum exploit, sporting an onboard rocket launcher, satellite navigation, quick release harness system for rapid ejection, intricate exhaust system come breathing apparatus, aluminium tread plates and bumpers and four Safari headlamps fixed to the roof of the cab. And that's just one vehicle.

Also packing a mechanical punch throughout the Simon West movie is a Ducatti / Harley carbon-framed hybred and a series of similar off-road vehicles including a customised Range Rover belonging to Lara's arched rival Powell. Land Rover also slipped in a series of Discoveries to complement the vehicle cast list. Tomb Raider is under final editing following it's wrap last month before the celluloid is prepared for a June 15th United States debut, coming to Europe later in the month.
