... and also rare Russet Brown color :)
I believe is a post 1979 model (no galvanized bumpers, decal and no more raised letters, no tag on the panel after the bonnet).

One might also suspect Crayford or MacNeillie of having done these things (but that´s just an idea).

The horse box the Range Rover is towing contains not a horse but a mini jet.

I think it's supposed to be some fictional country in Latin America.

Is it a Wood & Pickett?

I think this is another Anglegrinder Special - see 1st of G-MANN's thumbs and cruddy welding at top of pillar. Also the impractically thin windscreen support without the door frames. Probably locally made for sunny days only - no possibility of any hood attachment to that windscreen frame nor any sign on rear body. All the bespoke specialists suggested - and many others - who did expensive things to Range Rovers would create something much more sophisticated (Wood & Picket, Symbol, Glenfrome, Panther, Vantagefields etc, and even Land Rover Specialist Division), plus interior looks fairly standard in front, even with the old manual gear knob. Also interesting that on a long google search, no-one's claiming credit for the conversion - if it had been a specialist coachbuilder, they would - somehow somewhere - boast about one of their cars being in a Bond movie.

I was almost sure dsl is right....very disappoiniting for me since I collect 4x4s in 1/43rd scale and felt quite put off there is no real "original". Yesterday, by chance I came across a very, very comprehenasive site on the Range Rover and its conversions...and, finally: dsl WAS right, the car has grinded off window frames (guess so the girl can be seen better)...but it´s not a one-off, that car is a RAPPORT HUNTSMAN:

@d&p - well found. Agree a butchered Rapport Huntsman looks very likely.

Magazine article (Classic & Sportscar, April 2018) on a replica created in Peterborough on a 1982 LHD made-for-F car with 8694XR72 plates says the original was very probably a Rapport Huntsman from general consensus of experts, but is very unusual for a Bond car for disappearing completely off the radar, despite exhaustive efforts by Bond fans to trace what it was and what happened to it. No-one seems to know nothing.
