Core Design's renowned British archaeologist Lara Croft has lent her specially equipped Land Rover Defender to the Heritage Motor Centre for the summer, where it will displayed, within a special exhibition, from the 28th July to 2nd September.

The Heritage Motor Centre will also be giving away two cinema tickets for Paramount Pictures Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie in a treasure hunt competition and advising visitors to bring cameras so to be photographed in front of the customised Land Rover V8 Defender.

Chris Moon, a regular reader of, recently returned from a trip to the Heritage Motor Centre after touring the grounds with his son. Chris describes being met at the gate and transported into the Motor Centre on a Land Rover powered train, before finally coming face to face with the customised V8 Defender vehicle used by Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie in Paramounts Tomb Raider movie.

Chris told us: "The vehicle was very cool indeed and we had a good close up look inside, and although we were not allowed to sit in the Defender, it was worth the wait."

The Heritage Motor Centre is situated in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, in 63 acres of parkland and lies 12 miles from Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon and 9 miles from the historic town of Warwick. The Centre is just two minutes from junction 12 of the M40 and is signposted on the motorway. Birmingham International Airport is just half an hour away , with the nearest railway station being Royal Leamington Spa.
