The Octopussy Range Rover

Range Rover’s presence in 1983’s Octopussy is such an obvious crossover of Blighty icons that we cannot imagine James Bond choosing any other 4×4…

Few brands evoke Britain as much as the Range Rover. The 4x4 was launched in 1970 by British Leyland and has seen a number of striking iterations over the years, adapting to the times but never losing its sense of identity, style, and sophisticated strength. It has become as much a part of the nation’s heritage as cricket teas and dry humour, or a certain famous spy with great taste in British motor cars.

Indeed, Range Rover’s presence in 1983’s Octopussy is such an obvious crossover of Blighty icons that we cannot imagine James Bond choosing any other 4x4 for an off-duty excursion to the countryside. Or, as we see in Octopussy, a high-speed chase over rough terrain in an escape from persistent villains.
