  • The legacy of Land Rover

    Used Land Rovers in Yorkshire

    Manufactured by world-renowned ‘Land Rover’, the Range Rover luxury four-wheel sport utility vehicle has been in production since 1970. Assembled in Solihull, Range Rover is a British icon, so iconic that it has attained the ultimate quality assurance of any brand – the specific term ‘Range Rover’ has replaced the more general ‘SUV’ in the common lexicon. As iconic as this may be, it should be stated that there’s a huge difference between a real Range Rover and a standard SUV.

    Now in its fourth generation, the Range Rover brand has a long and prestigious history of excellence. Beginning with experimental designs by the Rover Company in 1951, it took sixteen years for top engineers to achieve in reality what their predecessors had on paper. Constructed from top-of-the-range materials in its classic shape and style, the vehicle was so popular that in the early 1970s it was displayed by the Louvre as exemplary piece of industrial design. 

    But the Range Rover isn’t just a work of art, it’s also up to any challenge. In 1972 the British Trans-Americas Expedition were the first vehicle-based expedition to travel America North-to-South, choosing specially designed Range Rovers for the feat.

    It’s no surprise that Range Rovers have become an essential cultural milestone, appearing in movies such as The Bourne Identity and For Your Eyes Only. In 2004 they were described by original engineer Spen King as a ‘status symbol’, something he’d never envisioned.
