Movie and TV Star Cars to Wow the Crowds at LANDROVERmax!

This year’s LANDROVERmax! held at Stoneleigh Park from August 28 to 30 will be featuring a host of famous Land Rovers from blockbuster movies and hit TV shows. The event’s main attraction will be the Land Rover 110 used in Tomb Raider and driven by Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft.

“While Land Rovers have featured in many films, including The Ipcress File, The Italian Job and Get Carter, Tomb Raider (2001) really put the world’s 4x4 in the limelight as Lara went in search of hidden treasure,”
a company statement reads.

Also on display will be the City-Cab from Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 film, Judge Dredd. Based on the forward-control (cab over the engine as opposed to having a bonnet like conventional Land Rovers), 31 examples were made for the film, which was set in 2139. Featuring an all-new body design for the film, bodies were made from glassfibre and were built by Land Rover.

From the small screen there is the Buster – a 1986 110 owned by Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond. According to Richard, "it cost more than a new Range Rover and is more expensive to run than a Ferrari Enzo ­ but I always drive it with a big grin on my face."

Another highlight of the show is the SAS Desert Patrol 110 model, used by the British Army in Iraqi and Afghanistan campaigns. “In theatres of war the Land Rover is a vital tool helping soldiers and they have served alongside military personnel down the decades, becoming well-loved for their reliability and strength,” the statement continues.
