A View to a Kill
First generation Range Rover - 1983 years model in A view to a kill
The tradition started, I believe, with Max Zorin, played by Christopher Walken, in A View to a Kill 1985. Zorin and MayDay are being picked up by Zorin's men by the lake near Zorin's chateau outside Paris, after having disposed of Bond and his car in the lake. In the film, the Range Rover that was used is the first generation Range Rover of model 1983. This first generation model was produced between 1970 and 1996.
---o0o---Tomorrow Never Dies
In Tomorrow, Carver sends his men after Bond and Wai Lin, after they both have jumped off his skyscraper in Saigon and escaped on a BMW motorcycle. The chase, with the spectacular motorcycle jump over Carver's helicopter in the finale, was actually filmed in Bangkok but were thus supposed to be set in Vietnam.
Carver's Range Rovers feature rather prominently in the film, and consequently this was the second time in the Bond series that the villain had purchased Range Rover cars for his henchmen. The assassin in The Living Daylights, driving a Land Rover down the rock of Gibraltar does not count as he is only stealing the Land Rover from the British Army.

The Range Rovers chase Bond and Wai Lin through the streets of Saigon crashing into almost everything. The Second generation Range Rover was produced between 1994 and 2002.
Die Another Day
|Third generation Range Rover - model year 2002 in Die Another Day|
When Gustav Graves is being knighted in Die Another Day he is being picked up by his men outside of Buckingham Palace in two Range Rover cars of the third generation. The cars are only briefly seen in this scene and Graves are only driven through the gates of the palace, but the cars are also seen parked in Iceland later in the film.
The third generation Range Rover was seen again In Casino Royale when Le Chiffre's men are driving it Range Rover Series III from 2005 alongside the Jaguar in Montenegro, seen parked in the picture below.
Earlier in Casino Royale three Land Rover Defender 110 from 2005 are also used by Le Chiffre while he is in Mbale in Africa.
Silva's henchmen in Skyfall have chosen a Range Rover Police car in London, before infiltrating the inquiry meeting M is attending. The car is a 2011 Land-Rover Discovery of the fourth generation. A Land Rover Defender Pick Up was also driven by field agent Eve in the pre-title sequence.
In Spectre, Hinx and his henchmen are kidnapping Dr Swan in the Austrian alps. The henchmen are driving off in two Land Rover Defenders Big Foot and Hinx is riding in a Range Rover of the fourth generation. The model is Range Rover Sport SVR of year 2015. Both models are ideal choices for an alpine drive although Blofeld himself keeps two Mercedes-Benz AMG models in the Moroccan desert.
The fourth generation Range Rover was introduced in 2012 and is still being produced.
A bit off topic, but even Goldfinger had a Land Rover, as a 1958 Land Rover is seen parked on the premises of Goldfinger's factory in Switzerland.
