70 Years of Land Rover

With 70 years behind the name, it really comes as no surprise why Landrover is still so iconic today.

Reaching back from the original designs first created in 1947 by Rover’s chief designer Maurice Wilks and his associates, by 1978 when Landrover formed, they had already created something special.

So today, in their 70th year, we pay a little homage to Landrover, and Range rover over the past 7 decades.

1978: Land Rover Limited is formed




1980: 5-door Range Rover introduced



1987: Range Rover is finally introduced to the US market



2005: Introduction of Range Rover Sport



2017: The Range Rover Velar was unveiled in London



With 70 amazing years, and probably many more to come, it will be interesting to see in the future what new innovations the team at Land Rover will come up with. Might we one day have flying rovers? I guess only time will tell.
