DID YOU KNOW THAT...? History of Land Rover
In the year 1947 some brothers (Wilks) wanted to create an all-terrain vehicle for all kinds of public. They created the vehicle using a Jeep chassis, specifically the Jeep Willys, a hundred percent gasoline engine, a gearbox, etc.
The most remarkable thing about this car is that the driver's seat was located in the center of the car in the front thinking all countries and their different ways of driving. At first, the vehicle model did not work on the market. But at the end of the year 1949 the manufacture of the model begins.
In the year 1979, a Range Rover is manufactured that is participant and also winner of the Paris-Dakar Rally.
In 1981 he won the Paris-Dakar Rally again.
It should be noted that a few years later in 1989, the third model of Land Rover Discovery was created that according to many of the customers was the cheapest option that exists if what you wanted is to continue with that aesthetics and engine of Range Rover. Later in the late nineties, the Land Rover Defender takes on great importance, with a production of more than 1,500,000 units worldwide.
One of the most important dates in the world of Land Rover, is the creation of the Freelander model, a cheaper vehicle option. Although it was the most economical option, it already had modern technologies such as descent control.
More later, the models that were being manufactured were with air suspension, etc., the creation of vehicles of a new era full of technologies.
Land Rover is known for its variety in vehicles, but thanks to the appearance of the Range Stormer Concept model (one of the most characteristic vehicles for having only 3 doors) begins to sound the SUV concept within this brand.
One of the moments that most impacted the public of Land Rover, is that in 2005 a new vehicle model called Range Rover Sport was created. And it was the first vehicle that handled better on the asphalt than the field. A concept within the way of driving that left the audience speechless.
Over the years, approximately 70 years, we have seen a very large growth of this brand as the appearance of the Range Rover Evoque, the greatest commercial success of all time.
The brand throughout its life has changed owners, brands, etc. To give you an idea, BMW bought the Rover company in 1994. Although in 2000, BMW decided to sell Rover, to Ford.
The manufacture of Rover in Spain begins with an Andalusian factory in Linares, which begins to manufacture the Land Rover II. A curiosity of the manufacture of this model in that area, is that in the factory they decided to put the name of Santana on the vehicle. The specific engines for the Rover brand, were made in Ciudad Real.
One of the most striking curiosities is that different versions were made and the most outstanding is the one made with a chassis of the 109. The new vehicle that is called Santana Aníbal with an Iveco engine is chosen as a transport in the Spanish army.
Of this brand we can get to know or that we know many names like:
Land Rover Defender, Land Rover Discovery, Land Rover Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Evoque. In definitive, it is a brand that always called, calls and will attract attention.
