Tomb Raider, Lara's Defender

Defender is Star Vehicle of Movie 'Tomb Raider,'
Lara Croft's V8 Defender is based on a high-capacity pickup version of the Defender 110 - that has been specially modified by Land Rover Special Vehicles in conjunction with Paramount Pictures. Bonatti Gray in color with aluminum tread plates and bumpers, this unique, open-top Defender is fitted with a "Heritage"-type grille and four Safari driving lights mounted on the front of the roof rack. Extra accessories to aid Lara in her adventures include an expedition tool kit, fender-mounted shovel and axe, winches at the front, rear and sides, a dash-mounted notebook computer, a GPS navigation system, a GSM telephone and emergency kill buttons.

The Defender is not the only Land Rover vehicle featured in the movie. "Tomb Raider" and Land Rover fans will see the complete Land Rover product lineup, which includes the Discovery Series II, Range Rover and upcoming Freelander models. The Range Rover plays a supporting role as the vehicle driven by Lara's wealthy arch-enemy Powell. The Discoverys are driven by Powell's evil henchmen.

This a replica of the real Lara Croft's V8 Defender.
It is made by Racing Champions, 1/64 scale Land Rover Defender. It looks very detail compare with the real Defender. Brought it in USA, at one of the TRU in LA. Got information from another toy store at the state, that this Defender is very limited even in the USA.
Still can do some piant touch up on the front bumper spot light, so that it looks even better.

If you like this new post. Do drop by some words ya. (comments or shoutmix) TQ.

Whether you are interested be sure to turn heads and you will get both by installing an 9003 hid on your bike. Not only the bright lights make a huge difference and customize the look of your machine, they improve your security allowing you to better see and be seen at night.
