Land Rover vehicles have a rich history dating back to the late '40s and are one of the first off-road vehicles to ever be produced. Let's take a minute to learn about and appreciate the history of one of the most innovative automotive brands of the 20th century.
The idea for the Land Rover design came about in Great Britain in 1947 by Maurice Wilks, designer at the Rover Company, and the first Land Rover vehicle
was built in 1948 with the steering wheel in the middle of the console. A number of Land Rover models were manufactured before Land Rover became its own
company 30 years later in 1978, including the Series I, Series II, Series IIA, and Series III. The first Range Rover model was also manufactured in 1970.
In 1994, Land Rover was bought out by BMW and was then sold to Ford in the year 2000. In 2008, Ford then sold Land Rover to Tata Motors.
Land Rover has produced a number of memorable models since the 1940s. The Land Rover Series I was used in the 1955-1956 Oxford and Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition, or "First Overland," in which college students from Oxford and Cambridge drove from London to Singapore. Tank treads were an available feature with the Series II. In 1979, the Range Rover won the first ever Paris-Dakar rally race, an intense off-road expedition that takes competitors from Paris, France to Dakar, Senegal. The Land Rover has also been featured in numerous movies, including a few James Bond films (most recently Skyfall and Spectre), Fast & Furious 6, and Tomb Raider.
