Just to add information about the 'chassis code' P38 is not quite correct although I guess most Land Rover People would recognise it.

The project started with the code name 'Pegasus' but development took so long that the motoring press identified most of the vehicles details well before the launch date. So to try to keep any further details confidential Land Rover and all the suppliers were instructed to rename the project '38A'. This was chosen because it was the building number on the Land Rover Solihull site where the engineering department was located. It was known as '38A' for about two years because the release date for the vehicle was constantly being delayed.

Anyway, I'm not proposing 'P38' as the chassis code should be changed on IMCDb, as it still looks to be a good identifier, as being a shortened 'Pegasus/38A'.

Sunbar is right, most Rangies are either 'Classic' (commercial definition), P38 (project), L322 or 'New'RR (project), etc.
Just one question ... according to J. Taylor's bible original the 2nd gen RR project name was Remus, as it was a 'twin' to the restyling ('Romulus') of the original Discovery ('Jay').
I've seen Pegasus written more times now ... what's the relationship?

I worked on the Range Rover Project when it was known as both 'Pegasus' and '38A' and only these project names. Although remember 'Romulus' and 'Remus' they were not major projects that I worked on so I must conclude they did not involve a major body redesign as far as I know. I worked on all LR programmes from the first Range Rover from 1970 onwards that would involve major changes to the body-in-white so I was familiar with all new projects. However this would not include yearly facelifts of equipment changes that did not involve a major re-design.

Therefore, as I have not read 'J. Taylor's bible', I had to 'google' for 'Romulus' and 'Remus', so cannot say for certain the information I found is accurate but it would confirm my experience of the Range Rover and Discovery programmes. So with reference to the following site... http://members.aol.com/eaequestrian/94my.htm It would appear that they were the Range Rover '94MY (which was to be become the Classic) and Discovery '94MY, The all-new Range Rover was still being finalised at this time and was therefore a separate project.

Yes, I think I mixed up the two RRs ... the MkII Disco and last Classic (soft-dash) had much in common, so they make more sense as 'twins' that not the P38A Range. Thanks for clearing that up :)

:lol: Completely unnecessary I assure you. I have great respect for Land Rover's engineering capabilities but running their projects on time was always very frustratingly slow. :(

Ah ..the british flair ;) ... don't worry, results were also somewhat eccentric :lol:
Love the beasts nonetheless ;)
Ah, this car should be listed as 1994-onwards :)

Although both were destroyed, another two Range Rover appear soon afterwards, wearing the same licence plates. Most probably these shots were filmed before the fireworks-scene.

It should be very obvious that Land Rover was owned by BMW in 1997, who sponsored and also supplied numerous brand new E38 7 Series and motorcycles to Tomorrow Never Dies production, between late March 1997 and July 1997.

These are brand new 1997 units at the time of filming, as per the sponsorship.

Therefore labeling 1995 as the year, seems a little cliche, when the obvious says otherwise. At this point, the late 1999 updates hadn't surfaced yet, so amber indicators were still present.

Vietnamese plate 25 = Lai Châu province
Plate 31 = Hanoi (where the scene is set)

Never been a fan of the "this was prominently used in a film, it must have been brand new" line of thinking. That line of scepticism is justified here as there are 1995-96 models by the tailpipe coming out through the bumper rather than the 1997 tailpipe that pointed downwards and didn't come out through the bumper.

Would also be reluctant to ascribe a Made for tag. If these were supplied by Land-Rover just to be destroyed, they would probably not be too concerned about it being one built to meet Made for T standards. Wouldn't even be surprised if these were pilot build cars that had sat around since launch.
