We’ve heard lots of good things about the new 2013 Range Rover and there is no doubt it is an exceptionally brilliant vehicle. But to really appreciate this car’s greatness you need to study its roots. Fortunately, AutoExpress has already done the homework on this and brought us this great video featuring four generations the world’s ultimate luxury off-roader. This is such a treat especially for Range Rover fans.
The Range Rover first emerged in 1970 as a car designed to tackle the roughest terrains in the British countryside. It really wasn’t about luxury. But as its popularity grew, Land Rover decided to make it a bit easier to live it, and started adding some toys. The Mk1 has been around, constantly evolving, until the mid-nineties when it was replaced with the all-new P38. That one soldiered on until 2002 when the third-gen model came along. By that time Range Rover had established itself as a proper luxury car that happens to be incredibly capable on and off the road.
And now in 2013 we get the fourth generation Range Rover with loads of new technologies and features, but still true to original philosophy. In spite of its fancy Armani suit and huge Rolex watch, the new Rangie is still a tough bastard when the going gets rough.
